This in-depth educational program will cover many questions that arise in the dental practice. The presentation will provide you with enough knowledge and risk management tips to avoid dental malpractice claims. One of the most effective ways to avoid claims is to properly document the dental record. Learn how to properly document discussions with your patient including informed consent, treatment plans, expected outcomes and procedure costs.

Upon successful completion of this course, attendees will not only feel confident in their documentation but will also learn how to handle difficult patients, as well as patients with drug seeking behaviors. Additionally, participants will learn:

  • What constitutes the dentist-patient relationship
  • Proper documentation, including informed consent
  • How to address difficult situations such as a dissatisfied patient, what to do if they experience an unanticipated outcome and how to appropriately discharge a patient from care
  • What is required to care for a patient with special needs


This course is FREE for all SDDS members!
