Registration open for new TDIC seminar on patient emotions


Registration for the new fall 2014 lineup of TDIC’s Risk Management seminar, Beyond the Science: Patient Emotions in Dentistry, is now open.

TDIC is offering the seminar to help dentists correctly identify and handle patients who exhibit dental fear. Beyond the Science: Patient emotions in dentistry presents real case studies to dentists and staff members to help them recognize when, and how to dismiss a patient without placing them at risk; establish trust in the doctor-patient relationship to encourage treatment compliance; create office protocols to instill confidence in the dentist and staff.

California dentists who attend will earn 3.0 Core C.E. units and TDIC policyholders will receive a 5 percent discount* on their TDIC Professional Liability premium for two years.

If dentists can’t make the live seminar, they can utilize the eLearning option. To register, visit thedentists.com/seminars.
