General Meetings

  • Wednesday, September 10, 2014 - What You Do Know and Don't Know About Today's BORID, speakers Robert DeFrancesco, DMD and David Russell, DMD, MPH

    New Regulations from the Board of Registration in Dentistry went into effect on August 20, 2010. These regulations were developed to help ensure a high level of care and safety for our patients. Ensuring that these regulations get implemented and complied with has become an additional and important part of the busy dentist’s practice responsibilities.


    Learning Objectives:
    • Learn the most common causes of Board complaints
    • Review regulatory compliance
    • Understand safety, risk management, and licensing issues
    • Know how to ensure that your office is in compliance

    Speaker Bios:
    Robert DeFrancesco, DMD - Assistant Clinical Professor at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, former Chair of the Board of Registration in Dentistry and member of the Northeast Regional Board of Dental Examiners. Dr. DeFrancesco maintains a private practice in Waltham.

    David Russell, DMD, MPH - Former Associate Dean for Clinics at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, former member of the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Dentistry. Dr. Russell practices general dentistry in Boston.
