Dentists behaving badly
Go directly to jail, do not pass Go – dentists in deep trouble.
As a dentist, you are expected to uphold a high standard of professional behaviour, that warrants the trust and respect of the community. What are the consequences if your conduct, within the practice setting or your private life, does not meet this high standard? Even a minor criminal charge can have a devastating effect on your professional registration.
In this session, Dr Martin Webb (an Ahpra auditor and educator) will present a wide range of case studies in which Australian dentists have committed various crimes, many ending up in jail with their Ahpra registration cancelled.
At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
- identify the value of registration by learning from the mistakes of deregistered colleagues
- apply the DBA Code of Conduct to enhance the culture of professionalism in dentistry
- identify the consequences of stepping outside accepted professional conduct
- understand what constitutes professional misconduct in court trials.
