Synopsis:

Regular interaction with clients is a daily occurrence for Dental Hygienists and Oral Health Therapists. With this in mind, you may face situations where your clients claim an alleged breach in your professional duties. Beyond this, there are many other risks faced each day, therefore it’s important to have a strong understanding of professional indemnity insurance and ways to reduce practice risk. BMS’presentation will cover examples of industry claims, ways to reduce practice risk and key aspects of the professional indemnity insurance policy, as well as other products available exclusively to DHAA members.



Infection Control Workshop

Is your infection control knowledge up-to-date? Do you meet the requirements of the National Law? As a registered dental practitioner, it is YOUR responsibility to ensure you practise in a way that maintains and enhances public health and safety – this includes knowing how to prevent or minimize the risk of the spread of infectious diseases. This hands-on workshop will explore what documentation is required for your practice and how to follow these critical guidelines, to protect both yourself and the public.
