Complaints & Reports Outcomes

Caution

As a result of a complaint, the Inquiries, Complaints and Reports Committee decided to caution Dr. Rondeau as follows:

• Dr. Rondeau has a professional, ethical and legal responsibility to maintain a complete chart and record documenting all aspects of each patient’s dental care. The patient record must be clear and legible, and other practitioners should be able to easily review the chart and carry on with the care of the patient if so required. This obligation includes ensuring that each entry is dated appropriately and signed by the practitioner who performed care on that date. Informed consent must also be documented in the patient chart notes, in particular when risks are significant. According to the College’s Recordkeeping Guidelines, a dentist is required to keep a record of the nature of the informed consent discussion,  the information provided, and the patient’s decision

• In order for consent to be informed, the dentist must provide the patient with certain information: the diagnosis or problem noted, the nature and purpose of the proposed treatment, the risks and benefits of the proposed treatment, the alternatives to treatment, the likely consequences of not having the treatment, and the cost of each option. This discussion must be specific to the patient’s treatment needs and the dentist must be certain the patient has consented to the procedures proposed. Dr. Rondeau must ensure his patients understand the procedures proposed, particularly when a patient is consenting to irreversible treatments that will alter her occlusion. The informed consent discussion must be documented in the patient record.  

• Dr. Rondeau must treat patients for TMD according to the College Guidelines on the Diagnosis & Management of Temporomandibular Disorders & Related Musculoskeletal Disorders. Treatment must be diagnosis-based and supported by clinical examination and findings, and not based solely on the use of diagnostic aids. When using diagnostic aids, such as Joint Vibrational Analysis, Dr. Rondeau has an increased responsibility to inform his patients as to their use and function as a part of the informed consent process. When coming to a diagnosis, Dr. Rondeau must consider differential diagnosis or other sources of a patient’s pain and discomfort prior undertaking an irreversible course of treatment.
 
• Management and treatment of TMD should be conservative, and in most cases, TMD should be managed through the relief of symptoms, rather than the irreversible alteration of a patient’s occlusion. Where more invasive forms of treatment are indicated, Dr. Rondeau is cautioned that patients must be adequately informed of and consent to the irreversible treatment. When treatment is not improving the patient’s symptoms, the treatment plan should be re-assessed and referrals should be made where appropriate.

Caution

As a result of its investigation of a formal complaint, the Inquiries, Complaints and Reports Committee decided to caution Dr. Rondeau as follows:

•    In this case, the member made a diagnosis of sleep apnea. This diagnosis is medical in nature and thus outside of his scope of practice. Further, the member provided treatment based on this diagnosis. Accordingly, the member is cautioned to ensure that diagnoses made by him are within his scope of practice as a general dental practitioner.  The member is further cautioned that it is incumbent upon him to refer the patient to a medical practitioner when a medical diagnosis is required.

•    Concerns about his informed consent protocols remained subsequent to his completion of a course on this topic. The member is cautioned about his failure to heed and apply lessons learned through previous remedial education. In addition, he is cautioned that before initiating treatment, he must ensure that he has obtained the patient’s informed consent to treatment. As part of that process, the patient must be provided with the information regarding the diagnosis, the nature and purpose of the proposed treatment along with the risks and benefits of such treatment, the treatment alternatives available along with the associated risks and benefits, the likely consequences of not having the treatment, and the cost of each treatment option. Although either verbal or written consent are both legally acceptable, it is advisable to confirm verbal consent in writing where risks are significant. Regardless of whether the patient consents in writing or orally, he should keep a detailed record of the nature of the conversation, the information provided, and the patient’s decision.
