Policy for Patient Management

Patient Centered Dental Care
Policy for Patient Management in the General Practice Clinics:
  • Students must treat all patients assigned and may not refuse to accept a patient assignment.
  • Treatment must be performed in a timely manner. 
  • It is expected that the assigned student will continue treatment of all assigned patients until the planned treatment is completed or the case is reassigned to another provider.
  • All dental care transfer or reassignment of patients must have the approval of the GP Director/Assistant Director.
  • Any treatment initiated by a student must be completed by that student unless a reassignment is approved by both the GP Director/Assistant Director and the discipline specific faculty covering the procedure.
