Dentists deal with difficult situations every day and the answers are almost never black and white.

Filmed live at the 2009 Pacific Dental Conference, this set of educational videos guides practitioners in how to deal with:

  • patients living with domestic violence,
  • teens with substance abuse problems,
  • professional boundary issues, and
  • requirements for informed consent and confidentiality.

Registrants who successfully complete the post-test (PDF) will receive three CE credits.
