We know there’s never been a more challenging time to practise, with COVID-19 affecting every aspect of how you deliver patient care.

The pandemic has thrown up a host of dentolegal and ethical issues to contend with, and we’ll be looking at these and helping you make sense of them at our Ethics For All 2020 – Dental Conference.

Our dentolegal experts will address the latest issues impacting your professional life to give you invaluable advice around best practice and a better understanding of your ethical obligations. By better preparing for what’s ahead, you can reduce your risk of a complaint or claim.

Just some of the topics to be covered include:

  • COVID-19: Lessons learnt from the pandemic
    What it means to practise in a continually changing world and how you can best adapt.
  • The ethics of infection control – how has COVID-19 changed dental practice?

  • POPI Act and what it means for dentists

    The Protection of Personal Information (POPI) Act was signed into law on 1 July 2020, and healthcare professionals are obliged to implement the terms of the act. How will POPI affect your day to day practice and what are the laws around becoming compliant?

  • Difficult interactions with patients
