IS YOUR DENTAL PRACTICE MEETING
YOUR REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS?
Is your Dental Practice meeting AHPRA and TGA regulatory requirements regarding patient records?
If you work with dental implants in any capacity, current AHPRA and TGA regulations stipulate that all components for dental implantable devices (implants & abutments) need to be accurately recorded and stored for a minimum 7 years in thorough detail (this includes but isn't limited to the implant or abutment Lot/Batch and Reference number, and any other details that help identify the device.)
Personalised medical devices (such as customised abutments and prostheses connected to implants) require records to be retained for 15 years. Moreover, these details must be provided to the patient at their request.
The Dental Implant Registry (DIR) helps keep your Practice compliant, by recording all relevant implant component information, and gives patients access to this information automatically, once the registration has been completed
Furthermore, the TGA recommends using the DIR to keep and record implant details
Some implants even require mandatory Patient Implant Cards (PICs), such as Zygomatics and Osseoframes, which the DIR registration is a digital version of
Ensure your Practice is meeting your regulatory requirements by using the DIR
The DIR is entirely free for your Practice to use and simple to integrate into your current workflows
