  • Wednesday, September 17, 2014 - How to Avoid Falling Off the Cliff. Speaker: Debra K. Udey, Risk Manager at EDIC.

    Location: Embassy Suites, 550 Winter St., Waltham, MA 02451


    Thought the practice of dentistry is largely straightforward, there are potential traps that can lead to claims of malpractice. Through case studies, these areas will be presented, highlighting holes that can be plugged to prevent claims. Each area in a practice - clinical, communication and documentation - must be appropriately addressed by both dentists and staff to ensure the practice runs in a safe manner. Come learn simple steps you can take to make your practice safer for your patients.

    At the conclusion of the seminar, attendees will be able to:

    • Recognize proper informed consent to prevent claims of failure to advise
    • Document appropriately to clearly show the treatment plan
    • Implement techniques to improve communication with patients
    • Learn effective methods to deal with disappointed patients
    • Employ overall strategies to reduce exposure/risk

    Speaker: Debra K. Udey is the Risk Manager at EDIC. Her many years of experience plays a significant role in the development of their annual Risk Management Education Program. Ms. Udey has been in the Medical Malpractice field for over 30 years, 12 of which were spent in medical malpractice claims for a physician owned company as well as in a hospital setting. Since then, she has put her claims experience to good use on the Risk Management side of professional liability insurance for doctor owned professional liability insurance companies.
