I highly recommend this video. Statistics from the ADA reveal the fact that one out of every six dentists will be involved in some type of legal entanglement. It is your responsibility, as a dentist, to review and update your patients medical history at each dental appointment.
If this protocol was followed in every dental office, many medical emergency incidents and legal settlements could be avoided.
In addition, failure to detect oral cancer is the number one area where dentists and hygienists can exceed their dental malpractice coverage limits. Practicing the techniques depicted in the Oral Cancer Exam video will greatly reduce your risk and could help “you save and improve the quality of someone’s life“.
