Index
"...The authors' combined private dental practice and administrative experiences serve to present the uncomfortable topic of errors in dentistry in a format more acceptable to practicing dentists. Historically, dentists have avoided confronting risk and error out of guilt and fear of peer disapproval and punishment. This treatise helps practioners recognize that risk is a fact of clinical life and will enable them to overcome it in a planned positive program."
