How do patients want their care delivered? This is the primary question Dr. Bryan Laskin explores in his book The Patient First Manifesto. Clinicians are rightly focused on delivering high quality care, but there can be a great disconnect between doctors and patients.

In this podcast-style CE course, Dr. Laskin and Perio Protect’s Tanya Dunlap discuss the mainpoints in the book with a focus on successfully implementing initiatives that can range from new treatment protocols to uncomfortable new technology.

Learning Objectives
After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:
» Evaluate the potential and possibility of moving patients from maintenance care tooptimal care.

» Recognize the importance of securing small wins from implementing easy changes in your practice.

» Identify the core issue in successfully implementing a new technology into your practice.

“Doctor, I Don’t Want to Sue You, Because Then You Can’t Be My Dentist:” Risk Reduction Techniques and Informed Consent for Dentists, Staff, and Risk Managers

Categories:

Author(s):

Course Type: Self-instruction journal and web based activity

Target Audience: Dental Assistants, Dental Hygienist, Dentists from novice to advanced

Educational Objectives

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:
• Identify and assess risk factors in their current practices
• Reduce or prevent the incidence of patient injury or dissatisfaction though clinical and management strategies 
• Reduce or prevent the likelihood of a malpractice claim or disciplinary complaint in the event of patient injury or dissatisfaction with a professional liability risk management plan
• Build trust in the dentist-patient relationship with an effective informed consent process

Abstract

Case presentations highlight the various general dental and specialty procedures that present the greatest risk for practitioner liability. Discussions explore the anatomy of a dental malpractice case and dissect the underlying medico-legal process. Case analyses focus upon clinical and management skills necessary to reduce the incidence of patient dissatisfaction, potential injury, and subsequent legal, administrative, or ethical complaints. The presentation reviews the legal duties implied in the formation of the dentist-patient relationship. This includes the informed consent process as a primary risk management technique, competency to consent, standards of disclosure, the interrelationship between failure to obtain valid informed consent and malpractice, and documentation necessary to make good dentistry defensible. A professional liability risk management plan outlines the terms to include in a malpractice insurance policy, reporting requirements, exclusions, the resolution of patient complaints, and what to do and what not to do when sued.

Is an engaged, productive and welcoming work environment something you aspire to provide in your practice? Are you seeking the loyal “lifers” to join your practice? It starts with day one. An intentional onboarding process is the difference between a “job” and a “career” for your new team members. What tone are you setting? 

Welcoming new team members is over-looked far too often. I believe, in order to stop the 'Turnover Turntable’ from spinning, an effective on-boarding process is a must, but what does that look like? Through my own experience in leading and managing dental team members, I have compiled a “back to the basics” approach to onboarding. We will cover the ways in which to ensure your new team members feel welcomed, well informed and valued. I take those learning objectives and break them down for you into actions. 

Upon completion of this course, you will leave with not only the knowledge and motivation to provide an effective onboarding for any new team member, but you will also leave with tangible tools needed to get there. I have created a fully customizable “Welcome to the Team'' blueprint. This fill-in-the-blank guide will help take these course's objectives and put them into action. Knowing what the action needed is one thing, but knowing where to start is where many lose the motivation to apply. Allow me to help you!

Synopsis

Dentistry has been at the forefront of safety for years. But, in the age of COVID-19, many offices have recognized the need to make adjustments that further enhance the safety of their patients and staff—in addition to managing the routine, day-to-day challenges that come with maintaining a healthy, thriving practice. Furthermore, dentists sometimes find themselves working shorthanded without an assistant and returning to two-handed dentistry. This webinar focuses on Ivory® ReLeaf, a hands-free HVE system, and how it can help clinicians enhance safety, productivity, clinical outcomes, and overall patient care in the new normal. Lastly, hear about the newest addition to the ReLeaf line for pediatric patients and patients with unique needs.
