Your dental records are an electronic compilation of your dental history. Your dental records include study models of your mouth, dental x-rays, mouth charts and graphs, as well as dental illustrations. We record what dental procedures and treatments we have done as well as what we have suggested. We take careful notes as to what your health situation is like and what medications you are on both in the past and in the present. We also note the condition of your teeth and gums. We number your teeth and record the condition of each tooth. If we have extracted teeth, that is also noted in your dental records. We also log your preferences and dental goals. Your dental records are exhaustive, but that is so we can give you the best possible care and treatment plan.
How to Know if Your Dental Records Are Current
We would like you to help us keep your dental records up to date. You can do that by helping us fill in the information we need for your dental record at your next routine dental exam and cleaning. We will ask you a several questions about your health and your mouth. Please let us know if anything has changed in these areas, and if you have stopped or started any new medications. Lastly, let us know if you have moved or changed any other contact information.
