DDU journal summer 2019

In the latest issue of the DDU journal, we explain how dental professionals can effectively respond to an adverse incident to support patients and make sure lessons are learned.

By understanding what constitutes an adverse incident, how they can come about, and how to handle them when they occur, you'll be able to practise with confidence knowing you're equipped to deal with the unexpected.

Once you've read the article, test your knowledge to earn one hour of CPD.

  • Assistance dogs in the practice
  • Indemnity: an informed choice
  • Dento-legal implications of facial cosmetic treatments

...and much more.
