AHPRA and Dental Council Notifications – “Prevention is better than cure.” – Dr Brad Wright

Welcome to our recording of the recent webinar “AHPRA and Dental Council Notifications - Prevention is better than cure” with Brad Wright

Brad Wright is a junior counsel at the Queensland Private Bar. After a career in dentistry, he was called to the bar in 2011.

A significant part of his practice is Health Practitioner Law - assisting dentists - and other health practitioners on occasion - with regulatory matters. This also involves advising practitioners in relation to Health Fund Audit activity.

This webinar is a MUST VIEW you for any dental practitioner--- to protect themselves from an ever-growing area of litigation, regulatory scrutiny and patient complaints

In this webinar I asked Brad various questions and his answers were very exceptionally informative and his knowledge in this area of dental regulations and AHPRA is second to none

  1. What do you see as the areas of practice that get dentists into trouble with AHPRA or the Dental Council of NSW.
  2. What is the difference between someone suing for negligence and someone answering a notification ?
  3. What can dentists do to prevent notifications ?
  4. What can dentists do to defend notifications?
  5. How can dentists practice better in relation to records ?
  6. How can dentist practice better in relation to consent ?
  7. Is orthodontics a special case ?
  8. What issues arise in relation to action against general dentists doing orthodontics ?
  9. Can dentists practice orthodontics without being worried about the regulator ?
  10. How will a dentist know if their insurer is taking them seriously ?

I hope you not only enjoy this webinar – but take a lot away from it that will change the way you communicate with patients and ensure that you protect yourself from the dental regulators and potential complaints from patients .
