State Law Chart Note Requirements

Hello,

Where is the best place to find state law requirements for chart notes? I always feel like I’m missing something or not covering all of the basis. I checked my state law licensure site but didn’t see anything.

State laws for dentistry will be in your state’s Dental Practice Act. Most of the time the Practice Act has requirements like how long to keep patient records, patient record request rules, etc. Not necessarily a breakdown of what you, as a hygienist, needs to write. Here are some links about chart note contents in general:
