“Do’s and Don’ts of Documentation – Protecting and Investing in Your Career”


This presentation is graciously co-sponsored by Colgate


During the dental treatment plan process, dental professionals use ADPIE, Assess, Diagnosis, Plan, Implement and Evaluate. A sixth area, D, documentation, has been added. Documentation is the process of detailing all of the components of the ADPIE is a condensed, consistent format. A new hygiene treatment plan process uses APIED, (Assess, Plan, Implement, Evaluate and Document). Documentation represents a chronological history of the patient’s care and treatment. We will focus on the steps in documentation that can be applied to documenting clinical information. Additionally, we will use the same step process in providing information that you present to potential employers. You never get a second chance if your client/patient records are subpoenaed and you never get a second chance to make a good first impression. The first impression of you to a potential employer is your resume. Does your resume reflect your true potential? Join us for an interactive program to learn how to effectively document clinically and to maximize your dental career potential.
