As a follow up to a few weekends ago, thank you to Dr. Robert Heller, Dr. Thomas Bilski, Samantha Heller and the rest of the team at the Midwest Implant Institute for the opportunity for Vince Nardone to discuss Professional Liability and Minimizing exposure at their “ The Digging Out of Problems Course.” The experienced group of dentists who attended MII’s course on Saturday, October 17, 2020, had the opportunity to learn about preventing problems before they occur, handling loose and broken screws, removing an implant with minimal bone loss, when and how to charge for implant failure, which tissue barriers to use in implant repair, identifying failed implants that cannot be repaired, which bone grafting materials to use in implant repair, when to remove an implant that has lost bone support, when to remove a compromised tooth and replace with an implant, and when to do socket preservation with immediate implant placement. During Vince’s two-hour session with the dentists, he covered standard of care and avoiding exposure, informed consent, the importance of checklists, malpractice insurance, and asset protection.
The Midwest Implant Institute continues to impress us with amazing teaching opportunities for implant specialists and doctors focused on becoming specialists in implant dentistry. Vince looks forward to future opportunities to discuss professional liability with the Midwest Implant Institute so that the standard of care can continue to be elevated in implant dentistry.
For many years, Vince has delivered discussions to the dental and medical community on professional liability and other topics impacting their industry. In a short clip here, from the October 17th presentation at the Midwest Implant Institute, Vince discusses the importance of minimizing exposure to professional liability, including the impact on our reputation.
