Dental Office Embezzlement Prevention, Detection, and Proper Record Keeping (2CE) Live/Virtual    

**Due to the sensitive content of this course, it is offered to dentists ONLY** 

DATE/TIME: Fri., May 27  | 9:00am-11:00am

FEES: $100 MSDA Member Dentist | $200 Non-Member Dentist

INSTRUCTOR: Dr. Ronald Moser, DDS & Anne Moser, RDH, LPI

DESCRIPTION:  A fascinating two hour class that covers all aspects of how proper record keeping is a dentist’s best friend in preventing and detecting embezzlement, identity theft, and insurance fraud. Nearly all fraud that occurs in dental offices requires the perpetrator to alter records and steal in a way that the dentist will not be expecting or missing payments. We will teach you how proper checks and balances will help prevent and detect embezzlement.  

In the second hour of the class we give dentists a captivating glimpse into a real dental crime case.  Doctors will get to view video deposition segments and records from a complex embezzlement case.  Video depositions and records show how crafty and devious thieves penetrate patient records to commit atrocious financial crimes and how they were caught and prosecuted. 



P.A.N.D.A (2 CE) Live/Virtual

DATE/TIME: Tue., June 21  | 7:00pm-9:00pm

FEES: $25 MSDA Member Dentist & Hygienist | $45 Non-Member Dentist


**The Maryland State Dental Association, Maryland Dental Society, the Robert T. Freeman Dental Society, and the DC Dental Society are excited to partner to present this first annual joint networking and CE meeting between our organizations**

DESCRIPTION:  This program is a 2 credit continuing education course that focuses on the dental professional's role in decreasing the incidence of abuse and neglect. P.A.N.D.A., which stands for Prevent Abuse and Neglect through Dental Awareness, began in Missouri in 1992 to address the lack of child abuse reporting by dental professionals, even though the majority of all physical abuse involves injuries to the head, neck, and mouth. Delta Dental is the national corporate sponsor.  Many states have individual P.A.N.D.A. organizations but the Mid-Atlantic  P.A.N.D.A. Coalition is the first tri-regional collaboration joining Maryland, Delaware, and Washington, D.C. The Mid-Atlantic P.A.N.D.A. Coalition program focuses on child abuse and neglect recognition and reporting and appropriate referral for intimate partner violence, elder and vulnerable adult abuse and neglect, and human trafficking.  Throughout the course, the impact of bullying as a power and control tactic is discussed as it occurs across the spectrum of family violence topics.



Speech and Inclusive Communication -
Subtle Acts of Exclusion (2 CE)

DATE/TIME: Thurs., June 30  | 7:00pm-9:00pm

FEES: $35 MSDA Member Dentist | $50 Non-Member Dentist | $35 Office Staff

INSTRUCTOR: Michael Baran, PhD

DESCRIPTION:  Dr. Baran will present the reconceptualization of microaggressions from his new coauthored book, Subtle Acts of Exclusion: How to Understand, Identify, and Stop Microaggressions. This topic is of critical importance, as so many are becoming aware of the subtle ways that people are excluded in these interactions and the way that SAE perpetuate patterns of thinking and unconscious biases by which people of marginalized identities are consistently excluded. This new innovative framework will provide a new way forward – for all to conceptualize their work.
