The history of anesthesia in dentistry includes morbidity and mortality, and that has prompted dentists to seek alternatives to the usual modalities. The profession looks for shorter-acting agents, reversal drugs, monitoring, and other means to minimize poor outcomes.
Dr. Anthony Feck will explain the challenges to historical recording, defining, and claim submission. You’ll dive into case studies that help clarify and identify what went wrong and how to appropriately respond, communicate, and document events.
