Description:

The information contained in this program was current as of Nov. 30, 2020.

In light of an evidence-based approach to practice, most dental professionals consider dental care to be safe and effective; but as our medical colleagues discovered two decades ago, we don’t know what we don’t know. The dental profession has no systematic mechanism to documenting blamelessly adverse events and risks to patient and provider safety, by which dentists can collectively learn from the experience of others without having to experience that adverse event themselves. Safety in health care is a profession’s ultimate ethical and professional commitment. How can dentists improve "safety culture" and make a difference for patients and themselves?

Objectives
• Describe how re-evaluating safety in dentistry can benefit their patients and themselves
• Identify examples of safety issues in dental practice
• Describe ways to immediately improve safety culture in dental practice
