Dental charting is the fundamental method of documenting the condition of existing teeth.
Practitioners are aware of the value of this information can be , which makes it particularly important that is done accurately.
This skill is an essential element of the role of the Dental Nurse. It is also acknowledge that there are a number of systems and soft wares that can be used to record charting.
Therefore, LonDEC and Software of Excellence have come together to provide the dental team the skills to accurately detail the relevant information of present and past treatment via the use of the ‘Exact’ software.
‘Fourteen dentists at different practices in the UK assessed the dental charts of 1128 patients who were new to the dentist but not new to the practice; 44% of the dental charts were found to be inaccurate. Inaccuracy of the individual practice-based charts ranged between 16% for the best performing practices to 83% for the worst: 5% of dental charts had too many teeth charted and 5% had too few teeth charted; 13% of charts had missed amalgam restorations and 18% had missed tooth-coloured restorations; 5% of charts had amalgam restorations recorded but with the surfaces incorrect (eg an MO restoration charted but a DO restoration actually present); 9% of charts had tooth-coloured restoration surfaces incorrectly recorded. For 7.5% of charts, amalgams were charted but not actually present. Other inaccuracies were also noted. The authors reinforce the requirements of the GDC, the advice of defence organizations, and the forensic importance of accurate dental charts.’ Brown et al 2017
