Risk Management is a key topic that not only doctors should be aware of, but also their team members. As you will see, team members do play a significant role in the practice's exposure to risk. This is especially true in orthodontics, where orthodontic auxiliaries often provide a significant portion of intra-oral procedures. And Risk management is far much more than avoiding malpractice lawsuits. This is especially true in orthodontics when the chance of a claim or a large settlement are much smaller than other areas of health care.
