I don’t this is allowed but I had to asked, because I can’t find any guidelines regarding signatures for dental charting. Can a DDS chart and sign off a dental for another DDS (locum) that has left and is no longer with the dental office? ( this DDS did not chart a note at TOS). Where would be the best place to get information on dental guidelines, if there are any. A quick response would be very helpful. thanks.

What I believe you are asking is can a dentist document in the patients chart for another dentist? The answer is simply NO the dentist who provided the service must document . The only time another dentist may provide the documentation is if he/she was present at the time of procedure or examination and aided or supervised the entire time.
