Delivering top-notch dental care starts with ensuring the safety of the patient. The first stage in a dental patient safety strategy is intended to lower adverse events across the profession by identifying errors and the causes of dental adverse events. This review aimed to identify the categories of dental-related occurrences documented in the literature. PubMed, Science Direct, and Proquest were the primary search engines for the literature study. Based on CASP techniques, quality evaluations of the listed studies were done. After preliminary qualitative synthesis and abstract screening, 12 studies were determined to match the inclusion requirements. The most frequent adverse effects are in implant procedures, endodontics, and oral surgery. Applications of digital health technology have tremendous promise in preventing medical errors. The number of incorrect dental extractions decreased due to surgical safety checklists.
