Dental Treatment Notes Templates – German
This is a collection of professionally arranged, German language dental treatment notes templates. These templates cover the many different dental hygiene procedures commonly found in dental practices in Germany.
As well as assisting with your treatment notes, use these German language templates to improve your vocabulary. All of the typical dental treatments feature in the templates. For instance, Adult and Child prophys, Gross Debridements, ScRP, Perio Mainentance, Bleaching and Laser Treatments.
Now you can document your treatments neatly and professionally in German with these templates. The templates break down each treatment into the more specific procedures performed.
The 6 Xs
These German language templates include the ‘6 Xs’, as described in the RDH Magazine article, Straight From The Chart:
- Hx: History
- Ex: Examinations
- Dx: Diagnosis
- Tx: Treatment
- Rx: Prescriptions and OTC recommendations
- Nx: What happens next?
Hx: Why is the patient here? What is the chief complaint? What are the changes in health history or medications?
Ex: When we looked at the hard and soft tissues, what did we see and what did we find? Active decay, periodontal disease, lesions, broken teeth, healthy pink tissue?
Dx: Documentation of diagnosis and all diagnostic testing, including radiographs. Did the patient receive educational literature? Was there discussion about future treatment needs? (Hygienists cannot legally diagnose; however, suspected disease and findings should always be documented.)
Tx: What did we do and what did we use to do it? Take note of all restorative materials used. Was anesthetic given? How much, where, and what type? What services were rendered?
Rx: Were there drugs prescribed? What were they? Record date, name, quantity, and strength. Were any drugs dispensed from the office?
Nx: What needs to be done next? What is the sequencing of the treatment plan? Was there a referral made? To whom?
