Mandated Reporting for Dental Professionals

Dentists are obligated to document and report suspected
cases of abuse in all states, and dental hygienists
are similarly obligated in some, but not all, states. The
obligation is not to prove abuse or neglect, just to report
what is suspected. Each state has different regulations
on mandatory reporting for healthcare and other
professionals, as well as specific reporting requirements
for private citizens. It is essential that dental professionals
know the potential signs and symptoms of the
various types of abuse, are able to identify these, and
understand the mandatory requirements for reporting
in the state(s) in which they live and practice. It is by
identifying, documenting and reporting abuse that
victims can be protected and perpetrators prevented
from continuing abusive practices and patterns.
