How do I request a copy of my dental records?

As a patient, you have the right to:

  • Confidentiality – Under the Data Protection Act 1998, the Human Rights Act 1998 and the Common Law Duty of Confidentiality (the Disability, Equality and Race Relations Acts may also apply)
  • Ask for a copy of all records about you – These will be held in paper or electronic form
  • Choose someone to make decisions about your healthcare – If you become unable to do so (this is called ‘a power of attorney’). We have a duty to:
    • Maintain full and accurate records of the care we provide;
    • Keep records about you confidential, secure and accurate;
    • Provide information in a format that is accessible to you (for example, in large type if you are partially sighted).
