Jurisprudence: How to Avoid a Legal Entanglement (Dental Sleep Medicine)
Course Description: Risk management knows no shortcuts. There is a right and wrong way to keep records, a right and wrong way to approach a problem, and a right and wrong way to care our patients. Whether you treat patients suffering from sleep apnea or not, Dr. Rob Rogers presents a no-holds-barred approach to how to avoid legal entanglements from treating patients. While all dentists should take this course as an excellent review of risk management, dentists treating patients with obstructive sleep disorders should pay close attention. Who makes the diagnosis of OSA? A physician or a dentist? Who can treat OSA? A physician or a dentist?
