Do you know the Dental Board of Australia’s Dental Guidelines on record keeping have a planned retirement date of 1 October 2020? These guidelines will be replaced by guidance in the Dental Board of Australia’s Code of Conduct and a reflective tool. What does the new guidance mean and how can you ensure you meet the new standards for clinical records?

Join Dental Protection’s expert Dentolegal Consultants, Dr Annalene Weston and Dr Kiran Keshwara for a one-hour webinar examining the new guidance on record keeping – what it is, where to find it and how to use the new reflective tool. Dr Weston and Dr Keshwara will discuss how to create dental records that meet the new standard and ensure continuity of patient care. This webinar will include a real time question and answer discussion.

By attending this webinar you will:

  • Gain knowledge of the new guidance and where to find it
  • Understand what the reflective tool is and how to use it
  • Learn to confidently create dental records that meet the new standard and enable continuity of patient care
