Risk management courses serve the purpose of reviewing the basic legal requirements for

  • The current status of the malpractice insurance marketplace
  • A review of the basics (i.e., recordkeeping, medical histories, legal responsibilities of the practice, prophylactic medications, etc.)
  • An analysis of the types of cases currently being brought against dentists
  • A review of techniques that can be used to assure good relationships with patients and address problems that may arise
  • A discussion of governmental and regulatory guidelines that have been placed on dental practices
  • What is new or anticipated in new challenges facing the dental practitioner that will require changes in office procedures

The objective of this course is to provide the licensee with knowledge of laws and regulations as well as methods to avoid or resolve patient conflicts. Participants who successfully complete this seminar will receive a certificate of completion and four (4) CE credits. If you have not completed an approved risk management program within the past three years, it is necessary for you to take this course in order to continue to receive a discount from your insurance policy carrier.
