This course examines the best methods for producing desirable results to avoid injury. Clinical standards are reflected in various case histories. We will dissect some of the most challenging communication scenarios in the dental office, such as what to say when patients reject treatment recommendations or necessary radiographs and implementing an informed consent/informed refusal protocol.
