Provides complete documentation of examination, diagnosis and treatment for each patient receiving dental care including: periodontal, orthodontal, oral surgery, endodontic treatment, or procedures such as dental implants which require long term tracking. Charts may include: Chart Routing Record, X-Rays logs, Admitting Record, Dental Insurance Questionnaire, Problem and Treatment Lists and Plans, Progress Notes/Treatment Record (UW-D-3), Health History Questionnaire, Fees Statement, Request for Radiographic Examination, etc. NOTE: As part of the teaching curriculumn, graduate students are required to perform recall visits on previous patients throughout the patient's life. Frequently, this means that a patient who received treatment in Graduate Periodontics or Graduate Prosthodontics might be called back many years, even decades after their initial treatment. Once the patient is deceased, the chart will be considered closed.
