PNDC Highlight: Learn how to form a defensive systemic approach to record keeping

The Pacific Northwest Dental Conference is proud to have Dr. Roy Shelburne as part of this year’s speaker lineup. In 2008, he surrendered his dental license after being convicted of healthcare fraud and spent 19 months in federal prison and two months in a halfway house. He found that his records and billing systems were faulty and that it is critical and possible to implement protocols and form a defensive systemic approach to record keeping. Know that if it's not in your clinical record, you didn't  see it, you didn't say it, you didn't do it, it didn't need to be done, and it doesn't exist....from the legal perspective. To be prepared for any challenge the whole dental team must be careful, concise, complete, and diligent, not just the doctor. Learning and implementing this no non-sense team approach to record keeping could mean  the difference between success and failure in the event of an action or challenge to your practice.  You do not want to miss his Clinical Records Prevent Criminal Records: Do Dentistry, Not Time lecture and make sure to sign up for  the Clinical Records Prevent Criminal Records: Do Dentistry, Not Time - The Bootcamp workshop.
