Description

Dismissing a Patient: What You Need to Know to Say Goodbye

Knowing the proper protocol for terminating the doctor-patient relationship should be a part of every dentist’s risk-reduction armamentarium. In this lecture, we will explore mechanisms to dismiss uncooperative or non-paying patients still in active treatment as well as those patients who have successfully completed treatment. This presentation is designed to make the orthodontist and office staff aware of the legal, practical and ethical issues related to dismissing a patient.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize why it is important to dismiss a successfully treated patient
  • Discuss how to dismiss an active patient from the office during treatment
  • State some of the risks in dismissing a patient improperly
  • Identify the ethical issues surrounding patient dismissal.
