performed every 5 years or with any required physical
examination. Instructions for completion of the
NAVMED 6600/12 is found in MANMED, chapter 6.
Once the examination is completed, return the
patients dental prosthesis if it was removed for the
exam. The dentist may have instructions for the
patient; for example, information regarding
medications or future appointments. Make sure that
the patient understands the instructions given by the
dentist. Remove the patient napkin from the patient
and place it over the contaminated instruments.
Push the dental operating light and the bracket

appointments if needed. Remove all instruments and
prepare the DTR for the next patient. Follow the
