What Happened and What Did You Do?

As a dental team member, it is crucial to charting appropriately, including taking detailed notes during and right after every patient appointment. These notes should contain the reason for the visit, what treatment was completed, why, and the treatment outcome. Comprehensive charts—which should also include intraoral and extraoral images, when applicable—provide dental teams with easy access to patient history, help ensure the practice can offer the best care possible, and safeguard the practice should any issues arise.
