dli08This can be rather long and complicated, but a few important things you can do is find an insurance agent that stays up to date with current regulations and keeps you informed of potential policy changes, as well as be sure to perform dental services without deviating from the standard of care.You will also want to keep good, detailed records of all procedures, appointments, results, patient history, etc. to document your proper care in the event that the patient claims you neglected them, didn’t perform what you claimed you would, didn’t solve the issues they expected you to solve, etc.

One more example is that you want to be sure to watch what you say because that can be held against you, such as talking about another dentist or specialist, complications that you may have experienced, telling the patient that it won’t hurt at all when it will, telling a patient that it will be complete by a specific date, talking about other patients, etc.
