Legal Update: Implications and Risk Management for Dental Practices

Boston, MA •November 4, 2019 • 5:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us for dinner and a presentation by EDIC Risk Manager Debra Udey, who will update participants on malpractice liability. Dentists know that malpractice claims are a reality of the profession. However, knowing what causes claims and how they progress can help in their prevention. Through closed claim presentations, this seminar will explore the anatomy of a claim, the proper way to deal with board inquiries, and how communication and documentation can contribute to better care and decrease one's risk for claims.
