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.
