IN PARTIAL COLLABORATION WITH:
This course will emphasize the significance of accurate and appropriate data collection and record keeping during the dental hygiene appointment as an ethical and legal component of the dental hygiene process of care. The utilization of ADPIE to assist in comprehensively reviewing the client’s medical and oral health history, recognizing implications to dental hygiene treatment, documenting head and neck assessments, including oral cancer screening, and recording comprehensive periodontal records, including the clinical attachment level of the client, are integral components of the client record. Interpreting assessments forms the basis for the development of the dental hygiene diagnosis including caries and periodontal risk assessments.
