Documenting Clinical Cases

Diagnosis in dentistry is an essential tool in formulating the treatment plan for our patients. The accuracy of the records we have taken becomes the foundation for deciding the best treatment plan possible. However in the modern day dentistry, treatment sometimes becomes the main focus when we encounter patients, eclipsing the importance of comprehensive diagnosis and planning.

Every diagnostic tool is essential from casts, radiographs, photographs and history taking. Among these, diagnostic photography and history taking is commonly passed by due to the tediosity of the procedure and the format of patients’ records readily available. Thereby, equipping oneself with the importance and additional knowledge of the techniques involved in diagnostic photography and history taking, will help reinforce, not only the practice, but also the decision making for an educated treatment plan.
