This week we discuss some of the more "risky" procedures that can be done by general dentists along with the benefits they can yield for the patient and the provider. The allure of doing 3rd molar extractions and placing implants must be tempered with an objective self-evaluation and consideration of the patient's well-being. The average dentist is sued 1-2 times in their career and advanced procedures routinely result in the highest lawsuits - even of $1M or more. It's vital to keep patients safe as well as yourself by not jeopardizing financial independence by practicing without malpractice insurance. Just like with everything else, careful planning can yield great success.
