Learn to identify, understand, and defend against new legal standards in dentistry that may apply to state licensure disciplinary actions and to civil claims for malpractice. Either claim may result in ruinous practice and career consequences for the health care professional held to an objective standard of care for dentists.
"Unprofessional conduct" and "negligence" are legal standards applicable to the standard of care to be met by a licensed dentist. But this standard of negligence differs when applied by the state against a dentist and when a jury decides malpractice damages in a civil proceeding. Why the difference? How does it apply?
What is accepted in the dental community as the standard of care? How does that apply before a state licensure board composed of dentists, dental hygienists and consumer members? How does a civil jury of lay people apply those standards in a civil malpractice trial, where thousands or tens of thousands of dollars may be at stake?
This program offers an objective, thorough review of the new evidence-based dentistry standards and powers of the state over an individual dentist.

Why should you attend this webinar?

State agencies routinely handle, investigate, and dismiss -- or prosecute -- alleged violations of law that can be career-ending for the dental practitioner if pursued. Patients sue for dental malpractice seeking thousands of dollars in money damages.
Should the dentist even be held to a standard established by an evidence-based review? Explore the answer "yes," if that standard is being taught in the dental schools, applied by licensure testing, is reflected in current continuing education, has been otherwise noticed to the existing dental community, and is testified to by an expert witness for a state licensure board or before a civil jury of lay persons.
Learn to identify the legal authority for the state to take disciplinary action and to revoke the license of a dentist in this drastic state action. Seek to understand and defend against such state actions based on evidence-based dentistry because they may result in ruinous practice and career consequences for the dental professional.
This program offers an objective, thorough review of the new standard of evidence-based dentistry and the powers of the state over an individual dental practitioner using evidence-based dentistry to take disciplinary action. This program also reviews how that standard may apply in a civil malpractice trial against a dentist in a jury trial. Without an understanding of the standard of evidence-based dentistry, the dental practitioner likely suffers a fatal blow to his or her professional practice and career as a dentist.

  • Legal standards for disciplinary action by a state licensure board
