Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine how well a subset of SNODENT, specifically designed for general dentistry, meets the needs of dental practitioners. Participants were asked to locate their written diagnosis for tooth conditions among the SNODENT terminology uploaded into an electronic dental record. Investigators found that 65% of providers' original written diagnoses were in “agreement” with their selected SNODENT dental diagnostic subset concept(s).
