Be Informed About Informed Consent with Dr. Mike Racich

A regular contributor to CDA Oasis, Dr. Mike Racich is back to tackle the topic of informed patient consent in a dental office setting and to review best-practices as well as why dentists should view informed consent as a process rather than a procedure.

Dr. Mike Racich is a general dentist in Vancouver, British Columbia, and a graduate of UBC Dental School with more than 30-years’ experience.

During this discussion, Dr. Racich reviews a number of presentation slides to talks about:

  • Understanding informed consent within a dental practice context.
  • What forms to use when obtaining informed consent and where dentists can access them. 
  • The role of informed consent within evidence-based care.
  • Informed consent as a process.
  • Searching and referencing appropriate peer reviewed research.
  • Customizing and using consent forms in your practice and record keeping.
