Dental Protection International Case Book What dentolegal cases do we see arising from practice?

Learning outcomes

Using cases from Dental Protection’s extensive international data base, this session will explore: Both common and unusual cases we see in different countries How can the risks of such cases arising be minimised, and such cases managed when they occur? How can we best manage the situation when a poor outcome has arisen? How can we learn from them?
