  • Deborah Endly, BA, DH, NREMT

It seems you spend a lot of time entering information into your patients records, but is it enough of the right content? Learn what you need in your dental records to comply with the Minnesota Board of Dentistry Recordkeeping Rule. Assess how you can reduce your risk by improving your recordkeeping with simple steps that could save you time and money down the road. What is in a complete record? Did the patient call you at midnight on a Saturday to report pain? Sometimes critical incidences and conversations are not recorded, and the patient record only tells half the story. Recordkeeping tip to live by: if it is not documented, it didn’t happen.

Learning Objectives:
1) Review the recordkeeping standards in Minnesota.
2) Learn the most common board recordkeeping infractions.
3) Learn steps to reduce your risk of adverse patient outcomes by improving your recordkeeping.

This program is sponsored by an unrestricted educational grant provided by Delta Dental.
