DEBRA K. UDEY Risk Manager, Eastern Dentist Insurance Company (EDIC). Ms. Udey has been with EDIC since 2014 and brings over thirty years of dental and medical malpractice insurance experience to the course
In the morning portion of the course, Dr. Morton Rosenberg will address the prevention and management of medical emergencies in the dental office. Topics will include: preparing your office and team for a medical emergency; emergency drugs and emergency equipment; diagnosis and treatment of the obstructed airway; and management of minor and major emergencies.
The afternoon portion of this course, conducted by Debra Udey, Risk Manager at EDIC, will update participants on malpractice liability. Dentists know that malpractice claims are a reality of the profession. However, knowing what causes claims and how they progress can help in their prevention. Through closed claim presentations, this seminar will explore the anatomy of a claim, the proper way to deal with board inquiries, and how communication and documentation can contribute to better care and decrease one's risk for claims.
