Question: Why do you risk having an investigation of a Board complaint from a patient every hour of every day of your practice of dentistry in Texas?
Answer: Because, you're doing it wrong.
How are you doing it wrong? Because, you are relying on learning and knowing the Board rules for compliance with the rules and regulations for record keeping by taking the required Jurisprudence Assessment every four years [TSBDE Rule 104.1(4)], and from what you remember from dental school (how long ago was that?)
So, what do you remember from the 50 to 100 questions you had to answer on your last Jurisprudence Assessment in order to pass with 80% correct?
Exactly. You're doing it wrong.
Now, are you ready to do it right?
