Clinical examination and record-keeping

Clinical Examination and Record-Keeping: Good Practice Guidelines is a complete reference guide to record-keeping and examination.

Covering dental records, history-taking, full examination, recall visits, consent, confidentiality, data protection, referrals, electronic records, special situations and more, the third edition has been fully updated and expanded to reflect technological and regulatory developments. It also includes scenarios to put the guidance into context, as well as a series of extensive appendices, diagrams, charting notes and template forms which dental professionals may adopt for use in their practice.

Its recommendations – which the Care Quality Commission expects dental practices in England to comply with when recording medical history, assessing needs, and planning and recording care – are categorised for simplicity into ‘basic’, ‘aspirational’ and ‘conditional’.

“This publication provides good practice guidelines in clinical examination and record keeping for primary dental care practitioners. It is relevant, clear, well structured, accessible and an excellent reference tool”
