I was wondering how much updating/communicating of patient status to our referrers do most ortho docs maintain? My question comes up since a good referrer was upset with my office not communicating and updating his office on his patient's status. I personally send a letter that summarizes the treatment plan, plus a copy of the initial pan. If cooperation with brushing or elastics reaches a serious point, then I will send a letter to update the referring dentist. At treatment completion, I notify the referring dentist the braces are off and send a final pan when it is taken. Any progress pans sent routinely?
