Learn how to handle 'dental fear' in patients


Registration for the new spring 2016 lineup of TDIC's Risk Management seminar, Beyond the Science: Patient Emotions in Dentistry is now open at tdicinsurance.com/seminars.

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.
