What Our Patients Say

“At my first experience at the Penn Dental Medicine clinic, they were on time, personable, and exceptionally thorough. The medical history they took was the most thorough I ever had at a dental visit. They were patient and willing to answer any questions. I was assigned a dentist (student) who was friendly and concerned about all my worries. If the rest of the procedures go this well, I will feel that I have made a particularly good choice.”

– John

“I couldn’t have been more impressed with the quality of care and knowledge of the student dentist who I saw. She put me at ease and made me feel comfortable with the procedures being performed at every step of my care. I usually am nervous about going to the dentist, but am actually looking forward to my next appointment.”

You may be thinking: “What does it matter whether I have a dental record?” The truth is that your dental records play an extremely important role in tracking the trajectory of your oral health. A thorough knowledge of a patient’s dental records is essential to successful diagnosis and treatment. In this blog, you’ll learn what exactly your dental record is, what your rights are, and how you can obtain copies of your record at Penn Dental Medicine. What is a Dental Record?
