Probity for dentists

Taking place on Friday, 13 October between 9.30am and 12.30pm, this three hour interactive Zoom course addresses issues surrounding probity and ethics in everyday working practice

The public trust in the profession relies on dentists to be honest and transparent in both professional and personal lives. Dentists need to be aware of the implications on them to behave honestly and ethically and understand what steps to take to comply with these standards in difficult situations. Topics will include:

  • The meaning of probity and levels of professionalism expected of dentists
  • Patient safety issues arising from a breach of probity
  • Regulatory guidance and implications when probity has been breached
  • Learning from mistakes and reflective practice

Dentists will also get the opportunity to explore case examples highlighting common scenarios that could lead to probity issues for dentists.

This course is led by MDDUS risk adviser, Kay Louise Grant.
