Dental Nurse News: New Categories for Treatment Recommendations.

New Categories for Dental Treatment

The Faculty of General Dental Practice (UK) recently published its revised “Clinical Examination and Record-Keeping”

Recommendations for patient care are now graded A, B or C.
An A grade recommendation while desirable is not considered essential to good patient care, B is a basic requirement,
while C is conditional upon circumstances.
The new revision also gives greater emphasis on electronic record-keeping to reflect the more widespread use of this in a modern dental practice.
All dental nurses and other professionals should be aware of these guidelines.

The publication will be available at
