Monday Roundtable Luncheon
Almost 20 years have elapsed since the Institute of Medicine issued "To Err is Human: Building a Safer Health Care System." The dental care system lags well behind medicine in its attention to and identification of unintended injury and safety issues in the practice of dentistry. The 2018 ADA House of Delegates adopted a resolution that called for the American Dental Association to commit to establishment of a “Culture of Safety” in all aspects of dental practice. A multi-agency workforce has been tasked with a comprehensive review of patient safety in dentistry and is seeking comments, thoughts and suggestions on this topic. Your input will inform and enrich the review process.
