Dental practices typically do not have personnel departments to manage the task of navigating through the myriad of employment laws and regulations to keep the dentist out of trouble. The chances are greater that a dentist will have one or more employment law claims during his or her career as compared to a malpractice claim. In this course, you will be instructed on how to arm yourself with the two best weapons to both prevent and to mitigate the effects of an employment-based claim. We will also review the different types of claims most often pursued against a dental practice as well as real case reviews to examine how other dentists got themselves into trouble and what defenses are available. A sample written employment agreement for use with staff members will be made available to attendees. This course will address the perspectives from the practice owner as well as the associate dentist.
