Dental Insights Tip of the Week

Dental Insights

Do you use abbreviations, acronyms, or symbols to explain procedures in your practice? If so, the MDS Dental Practice Committee recommends that you clearly document your practice's list of abbreviations, symbols, and/or acronyms that are specific to your office. This list should be made part of your office policy so that all team members use uniform terminology. Be sure to educate new staff members with this terminology. Also include a copy of the list of abbreviations used in your office along with any distributed copies of dental records.

Consult your legal counsel or professional liability insurer for specific guidance.
