Keeping your records safe
Why do we hold information about you?
How we process the data
- Retaining information
- We will retain your dental records while you are at the practice and after you cease to be a patient, for at least 11 years or for children until age 25, whichever is longer.
- Security of information
- Personal data about you is held in the practice’s computer systems and / or in manual filing systems. The information is not accessible to the public and only authorised members of staff have access to it. Our computer systems have secure audit trails and we back up information routinely.
