Accurate Dental Records Make for Better Dental Care When You See Us
Posted on 7/12/2021 by Brandon Cooley
A dental record is a detailed documentation of the patient's dental history. This information is kept at the dental office. It includes illnesses, examination reports, diagnosis, treatment, and any management plan for the patient. They can also include referral letters, clinical photographs and x-rays, and prescriptions, in addition to other patient information.
Dental Records are Important for the New Patient
Keeping current and accurate dental records are important for both the patient and the dental office. For instance, if you move to a new place, your new dentist will want to look at your dental records. The new dentist will want to know of any treatments that you have had previously. The new dentist will also want to be aware of any preferences you have, or medications you are taking. Having accurate dental records is important.
Comprehensive and accurate dental records are important for every patient. In our clinic, keeping dental records is essential to provide our patients with the best care possible. The dental record is our way to provide the continuity of care for our patients.
