10. Waiver of Risk & Indemnification

The information contained in courses and education content with ZestAcademy is informational in nature and is intended to serve as an auxiliary aide in understanding and learning clinical procedures in dentistry. The material covered in ZestAcademy courses does not take the place of foundational clinical understanding and judgment. As a result, by attending a course, online or in-person, I understand that I alone am responsible for clinical procedures and outcomes I perform, regardless of the information presented within the courses.

I further hereby agree to indemnify and save and hold harmless ZestAcademy / Zest Education LLC / Zest Dental Solutions from any loss, liability, damage or cost that they may incur to the participant or a patient he/she may treat, now and forever, arising out of or related to participation and/or instruction in courses including any activities, or any other related activities, whether caused by the negligence of the user or ZestAcademy / Zest Education LLC / Zest Dental Solutions. This document constitutes the final and entire agreement regarding the subjects it covers, and it is binding upon the heirs, successors and assigns of the parties even if I cause harm to a patient from information learned in this course. This document supersedes any and all other documents or oral statements, and I represent that I am not relying upon any oral or written representations that conflict with what is set forth in this document.

This Waiver and Release of Liability, Assumption of Risk and Indemnity Agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by applicable laws, but it is not intended to assert any claims or defenses that are prohibited by law, and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.
