There are four more opportunities in California this year to attend TDIC’s Risk Management seminar Beyond the Science: Patient emotions in dentistry. Fear, as well as anxiety and worry, may not be easily identified by the dental practitioner, which can cause big legal issues down the road. This seminar will teach attendees how to correctly handle patients who exhibit these emotions so they can keep their practice and their patients safe.
Making sure the patient is comfortable at every communication point with a dental practice is important when it comes to him/her accepting the treatment that the dentist ends up recommending.
