Patient records

Arizona state law requires dental providers to keep and maintain patient records, including X-rays (radiographs), according to Arizona Revised Statutes Title 32-1264.

Patients who are moving, seeking a second opinion, changing dentists, etc., can request copies of their records. If your office charges a fee for this service, EDS members will pay for record transfer–duplication as outlined in their plan’s Enrollment & Coverage Guide.
