Enhanced Verifiable CPD from the
University of Birmingham

Record Keeping

Keeping accurate patient records, while complying with GDPR, is an essential part of contemporary dental practice, and the whole dental team has a role to play.

Records ensure the continuity of a patient’s care, enabling the dental team and a third party to see precisely what treatment has been provided and what further treatment is required.

They provide a means of defence in complaints, litigation and hearings, and are a regulatory requirement for
     - GDC Standards for Dental Professionals
     - NHS contractual obligation
     - CQC requirement
