  • Look Before You Leap (HD)

    One of the basic fundamentals taught by Dr. Reznick is proper pre-surgical evaluation of the patient and the procedure to be performed. For the removal of a tooth, following the Standard of Care regarding pre-operative radiographs is essential to plan the surgical approach and to minimize the risk of complications. When this is not done, not only will the procedure be more difficult, but the risk of untoward events and litigation are significantly increased. In this case, a dentist failed to properly evaluate the clinical situation before attempting surgery and the patient ended up in Dr. Reznick's office for management of a failed surgical attempt.
