Bring Your Dental Records With You When You Move


Posted on 7/30/2017 by Office
Dental records are important for dentists to your know dental history.
If you are about to move, whether it is just a city or two away or across the country, you are going to need to find new healthcare professionals. These professionals are the ones that are going to help you get and stay healthy. You will need to find a new primary care doctor, and a new dentist, among others. It is very important that you bring your dental records with you when you move. Your new dentist is going to need to see them so they know what you have and haven't had done.

What Your New Dentist is Going to Need from Your Records

There are many different procedures that your dentist is going to be able to perform. Some of them, like fluoride treatments, are only able to be done with time in between. If you do them too often, it can actually make you sick. If your new dentist isn't sure when you last had it done, they may do it too soon and you would end up facing the consequences.

Your new dentist is also going to need to see your old x-rays. They can compare them to what they now see in your mouth and notice problems as early on as possible. Comparing x-rays is a great way to be able to notice slight changes before they become major problems. They will also want to read through the old notations from your former dentist(s). These tell your new dentist things that your old dentists noticed that they should be keeping an eye on as well.

Don’t move anywhere without bringing your records. They are a necessary part of establishing a new relationship with a doctor, dentist, or other healthcare professional. Make sure you have your most recent records with you wherever life takes you. If you have any questions, or if you would like to learn more, please call us today at (971) 915-0555.
