Systematic review of patient safety interventions in dentistry.

Bailey E, Tickle M, Campbell S, et al. BMC oral health. 2015;15:152.

This systematic review of patient safety in dentistry found scant evidence for effective patient safety approaches, with the exception of surgical safety checklists, which were successful in preventing wrong tooth extractions. Further research is needed to characterize patient safety in dentistry and implement effective interventions.
