Legal Update – Social Media and CBCT

April 25, 2020
1:00 pm โ€“ 3:30 pm
  • Arthur Curley, J.D.

Digital communications, records and imaging have had a tremendous impact on the practice of dentistry. Bad or negative online reviews can devastate the marketing of the practice. Texting, emails, and video uploads can create unanticipated liability for claims involving allegations of malpractice and confidentiality violations. Understanding a dentist’s legal rights, obligations and defenses is critical in avoiding such claims and establishing systems to protect productivity.

Learning Objectives:
1) Understand the laws for the use of digital records, social media, and communications.
2) Recognize the legal exposures for claims of malpractice created by digital records, imaging (CBCT) and communications.
3) Understand the laws of marketing on the web and social media issues such as with Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and the attendance issues of patient confidentiality and HIPAA compliance.
