The dental record, also referred to as the patient's chart, is the official office document that records all of the treatment done and all patient-related communications that occur in the dental office.
State and federal laws or regulations determine how it is handled, how long it is kept and who may have access to the information. The dental record provides for continuity of care for the patient.
At Jefferson Dental Center, Dr. Lorraine Celis uses an electronic method to record your dental record. Using a modern dental practice management software on a secured network, Dr. Celis and her experienced team of dental professionals record images, radiographs, and detailed notes.
