Risk Management

Risk management is the practice of identifying and analyzing exposures to loss and taking steps to minimize those exposures. Incorporating risk management strategies into your dental practice takes discipline. However, the payoff to all parties is invaluable. When you commit to protecting your patients and the integrity of your profession, you also better protect yourself against allegations of malpractice.

RM Matters

COVID-19 has no doubt impacted every aspect of our lives. After months of practice interruption, many dental practices have resumed routine care, and dentists are taking extraordinary steps to protect the safety of their patients and staff. While dental practices are learning more every day about how to best provide care during the pandemic, there are still many unanswered questions that create uncertainty, stress and unease.

The Dentists Insurance Company’s Risk Management Advice Line is continuing to receive calls from practice owners about how to navigate issues related to COVID-19. These inquiries range from how to obtain enough PPE to how to address staff who are fearful of returning to work. Many calls concern informed consent and communicating any risks of contracting the virus in a dental setting.
