Guidance on reducing employment practices liability

At CDA Presents The Art and Science of Dentistry in Anaheim, attendees will have an opportunity to take advantage of several offerings from The Dentists Insurance Company.

TDIC’s Risk Management seminar,“Caution + Control: Reducing Employment Liability,” will present real case studies to help dentists establish effective hiring and performance review practices, provide employees with a fair and rewarding work environment and implement controls to prevent situations that lead to Employment Practices Liability claims.

Dentists have five opportunities to attend the seminar:

Thursday, May 4: 9 a.m.-12 p.m. and 2-5 p.m.
Friday, May 5: 9 a.m.-12 p.m. and 2-5 p.m.
Saturday, May 6: 9 a.m.-12 p.m.

All seminars will be held at the Hilton Anaheim Hotel, just steps away from the Anaheim Convention Center.

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

In addition to these Risk Management seminars, TDIC is sponsoring a lecture (C.E. non-eligible) at The Spot in Exhibit Hall D to help dentists better understand the patient dismissal process. On Friday, May 5, TDIC Risk Management Analyst Taiba Solaiman will lead a lecture titled “Dismissing a Patient: When Is It OK?” from 2 to 3 p.m.

On top of these learning opportunities, attendees can stop by TDIC booth #1107 at the Member Benefits Center and discover the distinction of being protected by a company that specializes in dentistry.

Register for the Risk Management seminars or find more information on the lecture at The Spot at cdapresents.com/anaheim2017.

*TDIC policyholders who complete a live seminar or eLearning option will receive a two-year, 5 percent Professional & Dental Business Liability premium discount effective their next policy renewal. Nonpolicyholders who complete a live seminar or eLearning option and are accepted for TDIC coverage will also be eligible for this discount.

For practice owners, hiring competent, qualified and properly licensed staff is a key responsibility. Should it be discovered that an employee is practicing without a license, there are serious repercussions for both the unlicensed employee and the practice owner, for example. However, sometimes the requirements as an employer are murky, and tasks associated with hiring can get pushed to the back burner.
