Dental Insights Tip of the Week

Dental Insights

A patient is entitled to a copy of his/her dental record including radiographs upon request. According to Massachusetts state law, these records must be supplied within a reasonable amount of time not to exceed 30 calendar days from the date of request.

You may choose to charge a reasonable fee for the expense of providing a patient dental records, not to exceed the cost of either labor or materials, although many dentists provide copies of dental records at no charge as a courtesy to patients. The MDS Dental Practice Committee reminds you to never give a patient the original record, which you are responsible for maintaining.
