A look at statistics showing how the insurance industry fared in consumer class action settlements.
Tequesta, FL (PRWEB) June 23, 2014
Dr. Ken Berley and Rose Nierman, Founder and CEO of NPM, have put together this essential 2 day seminar for dentists and team members, no matter what stage of the DSM journey they currently find themselves in. Risk Management of DSM will add value to every DSM strategy and will help establish gold standard protocols moving forward. Dr. Berley will be digging deep into the legal aspects of implementing DSM into the dental practice and will be offering a unique perspective shaped from years of hands on, real life experience.
"This course was designed to equip practices with the knowledge and documents to protect themselves from the consequences of providing treatment to sleep patients who could cause both automobile and industrial accidents. We will guide them through the steps necessary to safeguard their practice from the tidal wave of litigation that is a real possibility," said Dr. Berley of the upcoming seminars.
In addition, team members will learn proper risk management protocols for medical billing, documentation, record keeping, and patient communication.
With an estimated 18 million patients suffering from OSA in the USA alone, suffers are seeking the advice of their local dentists more often, for an easier and sometimes more effective treatment option Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT). While thousands of dental offices are eager to incorporate such a high demand therapy option, many are not stopping to properly educate themselves and ensure they have set up the proper protocols to protect themselves, their team and most important, their patients.
The value you receive from an educational seminar should go far beyond the weekend course. NPM understands this, and attendees of NPM seminars gain access to an ongoing support network of dedicated industry experts, including resources like the DentalWriter Forums and Dr. Berley and Rose Nierman themselves.
