Changing times...Changing needs
The practice of dentistry grows more complex every year. There are more treatment options, procedures, materials, medications, and ways to communicate than ever before. While the explosion of knowledge and information has resulted in great advances, it can also create new risks for patients and practitioners.

This course, offered by the Professional Liability Program (PLP) of the RCDSO, examines emerging issues affecting dentists and offers risk management advice. PLP cases that have been resolved provide illustrations and tips to benefit you in your day-to-day dental practice.

Learning Objectives
At the end of the session, participants will have learned:
  • the role of PLP;
  • details of PLP malpractice protection;
  • the basics of offering a refund to a patient;
  • the risks of social media;
  • the role of teledentistry;
  • how good recordkeeping helps manage risk;
  • informed consent from a litigation perspective; and
  • strategies to prevent adverse events in daily practice.
