Welcome to the Dental Patient Safety Foundation SAFETY REPORTS. Please feel free to browse and share these reports. Cases are categorized and labelled by year and month of publication followed by a short title. Reports involving anesthesia are labelled with an “A”, when they involve anesthesia (local only, minimal, moderate or deep sedation by any route). Cases not involving anesthesia (wrongful tooth extraction, inadvertent patient injury, myocardial infarction, etc.) will not have the “A” label.
Levels of reporting can include Safety Alerts, Case Reports, Advisories, or Best Practice Recommendations. DPSF Welcomes all feedback and can be contacted HERE.
