2023 Dental Risk Management Seminar

Seminar for Dentists and Staff

Please plan on joining us for the MedPro Risk Management Seminar

Our annual Dental Risk Management seminar will take place on Friday, September 22, 2023. This year’s dental seminar topic will be: Dental Malpractice: What it is and how to prevent it; an approach based in risk management and will be presented by Marc Leffler, DDS, ESQ.

This case-based presentation will provide risk management strategies to reduce the potential for being sued for dental malpractice.  It will take participants through the dental malpractice litigation process, initially explaining what constitutes dental malpractice and lack of informed consent, discuss the requirements and pitfalls of recordkeeping (focusing on issues specific to Wisconsin), review the most common case types that lead to malpractice claims, provide actual closed case scenarios to demonstrate real-world applications of the principles and conclude with the ways that dental malpractice insurance impacts these circumstances.  Attention will be given to the role that office staff members sometimes play in situations that lead to lawsuits, as well as the effects of criticisms by subsequent dental practitioners.

After Dr. Marc Leffler’s presentation, W. Patrick Sullivan, Esq., of Siesennop & Sullivan LLP, will be giving a short discussion on legal trends and allow time for questions.  Attorney Sullivan represents professional health care providers, including doctors, dentists, nurses, and nursing homes in malpractice claims and manners pending before professional licensing boards. His experience includes successful jury trials in numerous counties throughout Wisconsin, as well as several hearings before the Department of Regulation and Licensing. He graduated from Tufts University (BA), Columbia University (MA), and Marquette Law School (with honors). He also defends healthcare providers and clinics against employment discrimination claims before the ERD and EEOC. Since 1996, his law firm has represented Professional Insurance Program’s insured dentists in Wisconsin malpractice cases.
