Supporting Your Practice

Can Informed Consent Cause you Grief?

Based on the summary of a complaint scenario published on the College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia’s website, Dr. Michael Racich joined Dr. John O’Keefe in this conversation about the role of informed consent in clinical practice and how it may cause regulatory problems for dentists. How should dentists communicate with their patients about the outcomes of treatment? And how should dentists conduct themselves when patients are not satisfied or when they come forward with a complaint? Many scenarios to ponder. 

Dr. Michael Racich is a general dentist in British Columbia. He is also a mentor in dental study clubs, author of a number of books, and a dental coach to his dentists colleagues.
