Abstract

The traditional trip to the dentist might be physically and financially painful, but recent changes in the way dentistry is practiced means there are legal issues that should be underscored for law practitioners and dentists. These issues include: The use of contractors (not employees) and the effect that has on insurance; the continuing importance of ethical obligations (the importance of not placing profit ahead of a professional obligation to patients – even in a more competitive environment); and the use of social media.
