Introduction & Aim: Oral cancer is increasingly common. The need for early detection and promoting prevention is greater than ever. The main focus of this audit is to evaluate the completeness and quality of oral cancer screening checks within the practice. This was achieved by setting a standard using internal and external resources. Method: 90 clinical records were audited spanning three dentists over 3 months. These were chosen at random and were compared to the standard set to check if it was being met. Result: The standard was not being met and needed improvement. Conclusion: A list of recommendations was drawn up for future improvements to ensure targets were being met. The results of the audit were discussed with all team members involved in patient note handling. A re-audit was carried out after 3 months to assess improvements which showed standards were being met.
