Course Description

The Communication in Dentistry series is a comprehensive guide to all aspects of effective communication in dentistry. The programme has been designed for the whole dental team and you may like to watch it together to stimulate discussion. It includes authentic examples of how skilful and flexible communication in the workplace, as well as being integral to good patient care, can also go a long way towards reducing or even preventing complaints, legal claims and ultimately, loss of income.

It also illustrates how getting along with your colleagues and patients reduces stress and creates the good working environment that makes going to work an altogether more positive and rewarding experience.


To illustrate the role of communications in: gaining valid consent; presenting treatment options; the relationship between practitioner and patient; the provision of information; and promoting patient autonomy.
