Dr Annalene Weston from Dental Protection presents Which side are we on? Wrong tooth, wrong site from the Sliding Doors seminar series.

Join us as we address the most commonly occurring complaints which arise in practice. Using anonymised cases from the Dental Protection library, you’ll discover the key learning points from real-life situations, gaining the skills to effectively handle difficult situations.

The seminar explores the breakdowns in procedures and protocols that can lead to a failure to provide the correct treatment, the consequences, and how to protect yourself in your day-to-day practice.
