In this lecture, the following will be presented: –
- The challenges of elective aesthetic dentistry
- Managing difficult conversations with patients about the diagnosis and long term management of peridontal disease
- How records can help you deal with complaints and claims
- What are the benefits of Dental Protection membership?
Dentists face many challenges in practice. Some are self-inflicted and can be avoided by careful consent procedures and good record keeping. Aesthetic dentistry (smile make-overs and aligner treatments) is in increasing demand and dentists need to understand what we should say to patients about these choices and how we should write down the important conversations. Stephen will also explain the benefits of Dental Protection membership and how Dental Protection helps its members who are subject to complaints and claims.
