Join dentolegal adviser Dr Martin Foster as he explores the expectations of the professional regulators in the UK and Ireland and the practical implications of confidentiality in your daily practice.

Designed for the whole dental team, this live one-hour webinar will use cases and scenarios to illustrate the best way to handle some of the confidentiality issues than can commonly occur.

With an opportunity for real time questions and answers during the broadcast, this is the ideal way to have the expertise of Dental Protection brought directly to you.

Webinar objectives:

  • To increase your understanding of what confidentiality is and why we have it.
  • To raise awareness of how to comply with the ethical and professional requirements of confidentiality.
  • To help the dental team understand and apply the underlying principles of confidentiality in the dental setting.

Dr Martin Foster
Dentolegal Adviser

Martin qualified in 1986 from Edinburgh Dental School and worked in general practice before moving into a career in the Community Dental Service which involved experience of a wide range of primary care and hospital settings, including care for maximum security psychiatric patients, sedation and anaesthetic referral services, teaching law and ethics and clinical tutoring in paediatric dentistry.

A combination of further studies and experience resulted in Martin completing a master’s degree in public health, the diploma in health service management and registering as a specialist in paediatric dentistry. In addition to his clinical role, an ongoing interest in legal issues led to the completion of legal examinations as an intrant in the Faculty of Advocates.

Martin was appointed assistant clinical director with responsibility for NHS Lothian Children’s Dental Service in 2007. He is a regular presenter on a range of legal and ethical issues and has a particular interest in communication and risk management. Martin maintains a weekly clinical commitment as a specialist in paediatric dentistry.

Martin began his career at Dental Protection as a part-time associate dentolegal adviser before taking up his current position as a dentolegal adviser in 2011.
