When difficult situations arise in your practice, do you know what to do?
You thought you obtained informed consent but a patient ends up confused and upset after treatment. Your office manager turns away a patient and doesn’t tell you about it. You consider waiving an insurance co-payment to keep a long-time patient happy. Your principal’s skills are declining but retirement is still a few years away. The decisions you make every day can go a long way in either preventing or encouraging a complaint being received by the College.
This course deals with common stumbling blocks related to informed consent, interpersonal difficulties, fraud, and wellness.
Join CDSBC’s staff dentists, Dr. Meredith Moore and Dr. Alex Penner, to discuss some of the most difficult situations they see and get advice in handling problems with patients, staff and dental colleagues.
This course is suitable for all members of the dental team.
Eligible for 3 CE credits.

Join College staff dentists, Dr. Meredith Moores & Dr. Garry Sutton, in a workshop that allows you to become a College Complaint Investigator for a day.
Two real but redacted complaints will be investigated, from the original complaint letter through the gathering and review of clinical information including radiographs and telephone logs with the complainant and the registrant to the final recommendations for resolution. The presentation is suitable for the entire dental team and will help to illustrate and explain the College’s current complaints process.
Workshop participants, working in groups of six to eight, will be asked to assess the compiled information and offer their comments, conclusions and recommendations for appropriate resolutions to the initial complaints.
