90 mins CPD/CE

Aims and objectives:

This dento-legal session covered aspects related to COVID-19 answering the following questions:

  • How does the consent process, perhaps, change as a result of COVID-19?
  • What should be included in the records, in respect of cross infection control or changes in SOP brought about by COVID-19?
  • I want to offer antibody testing in my practice. Does Dental Protection have any opinions on this, and will I be indemnified?
  • I have quite a lot of patients who are shielding, how do I manage them and how do I handle members of staff who are vulnerable or shielding?
  • I am an FD and I'm not seeing patients at the moment. What else can I do in the practice?
  • I am an associate, and I am not entirely comfortable with the measure the practice has put in place, what do I do?
  • There is so much guidance from various associations, public health, CDO, FGDP etc, which ones should we be following as they are all slightly different?
