Legal Aspects to be Aware of in the Practice of Dentistry - 2 CEUs - On Demand Webinar
Our legal system impacts every aspect of human activity, and dentistry in this regard is not exempt. Ethical standards of the dental profession are seeing a steady decline, altruistic concepts being overridden by a profitability/sustainability driven system influenced by the pandemic. A deficient understanding regarding the medic-legal aspects can undermine the effective implementation and delivery of efficient services.
