Do you know how long you are obligated to store patient records? What information needs to be included in a medical history? How to legally terminate a professional relationship with a patient?
Answers to these and many other, sometimes thorny legal questions are provided in the NYSDA Risk Management VII Course.
This new course features a power point slide presentation given by a dentist and an attorney whose experience extends to the fields of malpractice insurance and risk management in the dental field.
A certificate will be issued to all participants who successfully complete this seminar. Dentists who complete this course will be entitled to a 10% discount on their liability premiums for a three-year period from MLMIC Insurance Company.
