Have you been asked by patients or your employer /supervisor to perform procedures beyond your training, qualifications and experience? Do you know the importance of managing a complaint properly? The Dental Board asks that you practice within your training and scope of practice to minimise patient harm and the risk of complaint, claim or investigation. It is OK to say no to your patients or refer them to a colleague - this may be the most sensible course of action for that particular demanding patient or problematic treatment beyond your scope.
