The need for an effective risk management strategy for the dental profession has never been greater as dentists face the dual challenges of regulation and legislation as well as coping with the heightened expectations of an informed public. This book explores the many facets of risk management, including consent, ethical issues, effective communication, complaints handling and risk assessment.
"...The authors' combined private dental practice and administrative experiences serve to present the uncomfortable topic of errors in dentistry in a format more acceptable to practicing dentists. Historically, dentists have avoided confronting risk and error out of guilt and fear of peer disapproval and punishment. This treatise helps practioners recognize that risk is a fact of clinical life and will enable them to overcome it in a planned positive program."
