Nothing to disclose
While the practice of endodontics typically focuses on providing clinical excellence, a truly "successful" endodontist must be equally adept in his/her understanding and application of ethics and law, as it pertains to the treatment provided. This course will highlight several aspects of ethics and law , which are germane to private practice. Issues such as dental malpractice, patient confidentiality, record-keeping, patient termination, patient abandonment, informed consent and standards of care among others, will be highlighted.
