Are dental patients concerned about safety? An exploratory study.

Obadan-Udoh E, Panwar S, Yansane A-I, et al. J Evid Based Dent Pract. 2020;20(3):101424.

Patient safety events are common in dentistry. A survey administered to adult dental patients found that a majority of them were concerned about their safety at the dental office but that those concerns were not routinely shared with dental providers or clinic staff. Efforts to improve patient engagement and speaking up behaviors can improve safety in dentistry.
