Course Goals and Objectives

This two-part legal webinar is designed for dentists and gives practical advice before entering into legal proceedings.


Part I - So You've Been Sued, Now What? A program to prepare dentists on what to expect in the litigation process and a general “how to” in responding to a lawsuit.  This course will cover what to do from the moment of being served, to digesting the allegations, communicating with your insurance carrier, preserving critical evidence and taking appropriate steps to ensure an effective defense immediately upon inception of the lawsuit. This course helps educate dental practitioners on what to expect and how best to prepare for the uncertainties of litigation.


Part II - Deposition Bootcamp. A program that will thoroughly prepare dentists for one of the most critical points in any litigation, depositions. Indeed, many cases are either won or lost during the deposition phase, and it is a task that can be highly uncomfortable for those who are unprepared. This webinar will provide practical guidance while teaching basic deposition skills and techniques. We will walk you through commonly encountered problems for dentists testifying in deposition and prepare you to be the most effective witness possible.
