Title: The civil liability of paediatric dentists in Italy. Trains of thought on novelties introduced by law n. 24/2017 (“Gelli-bianco” law)
Abstract: This study offers an overview regarding news and main themes which have been introduced by Law n. 24/2017 (the so called “Gelli-Bianco” law) in Italy. The normative content deals with the features of civil liability for healthcare professionals. More specifically, this article is referred to the contractual and extracontractual liability of paediatric dentists.
Dentists often provide services combining healthcare and
dental proceduresas well as aesthetic activities.
Thanks to the case law and doctrine tradition, the distinction between contracts of employment and contracts of work is clearly stated.
This examination is focused on highlighting methods employed by paediatric dentists to prevent possible actions of suing for compensation.
