Creating a Safety Culture in the Dental Setting

Running a practice with a positive safety culture is the #1 strategy that can be adopted to ensure patient safety.

Michelle Strange, RDH, shares four ways to create and maintain a positive safety culture in your practice.

Here are four key aspects you can start implementing:
1. The first key aspect is understanding that patients are only as safe as the workforce.
2. The second key aspect is that a safety culture is no accident.
3. The third key aspect is understanding that it isn’t just about how we turn over an operatory.
4. The fourth key aspect is cultivating an environment that allows for psychological safety for all team members.

Make sure to keep your practice compliant with Dental OSHA Training
