Safety Symposium
Hidden Threats and Safe Practices: Steps to Creating a Safe Dental Home
Nov. 8 – 9, 2019
Renaissance Chicago, Ill.
 
Medicine was awakened to hidden dan- gers in the Academy of Medicine’s "To Err is Human", but the dental profession has yet to delve into potential risks of dental care. This course provides a look at safety in pediatric dental care and provides prac- tical tools and the latest clinical advice on how to improve office safety for patients, team members and pediatric dentists.
 
Featuring recognized experts from major areas of dental and medical practice, this fast-paced session will help attendees de- velop a culture of safety, mitigate poten- tial harm related to providing dental care, and become proactive for you and your patient’s well-being.
