Over the years, orthodontics has definitely changed. More and more we are being held solely responsible for our patients' final results. Making sure that all oral hygiene information is covered and documented, and educating your patients on their role in their orthodontic treatment, is imperative. Documenting any and all communication with patients/parents, as well as their dentist, helps to protect your practice. The final results can depend on the way you address oral hygiene with your patients while they are in active treatment.
