This 4 part video series, with author and lecturer, Philip R. Barbell, DDS, gives a comprehensive overview of all aspects of dental record keeping. Dr. Barbell covers crucial elements of the permanent dental record and teaches how to record content in a fashion which eliminates error and exposure to liability.
