Claims alleging "periodontal neglect" continue as a leading cause of malpractice lawsuits against general dentists. Without documentation, the dentist`s position is virtually indefensible. ProSystems, in collaboration with the National Society of Dental Practitioners, offers a free guide: "Periodontal Charting--The Do`s & Don`ts," by Burton R. Pollack, DDS, Attorney at Law. Also included, a Periodontal Tracking Chart that allows for simple recording of the results of periodontal exams over the years.
