Cheng HC, Yen AM, Lee YH. Factors affecting patient safety culture among dental healthcare workers: A nationwide cross-sectional survey. J Dent Sci. Sept, 2019 [epub Mar, 2019];14(3):263-268.

Patient safety events are common in dentistry, but it has been challenging for dental healthcare workers to establish a robust patient safety culture. This study used a cross-sectional survey to assess the safety attitudes among dentists and dental hygienists. Safety attitudes were high overall, but attitudes differed significantly by dentist characteristics. A 2016 Perspective on Safety in Dentistry offers more background on this topic.
