The final lesson of our Winter Workshop series sees us delving into the Dentally chart screen.
We know that efficient charting is crucial not only for accurate treatment documentation and streamlined surgery workflows but for ensuring an exceptional patient experience.
Dentally's charting features continue to evolve as our development team is hard at work implementing new features, incorporating new enhancements and introducing new smart tools to make your life easier. In this blog, we'll explore the recent updates, including new Perio charting, extraction icons, and x-ray grading.
New Perio Charting
Dentallys improved Perio charting capabilities allow you to record periodontal measurements easily and compare examinations easily against each other. The enhanced Perio charting enables detailed tracking of gum health, all presented on an easy-to-view guide.
Monitoring periodontal progress and providing targeted treatment plans for your patients, has never been easier. You can use the comparison feature to view progress and regression over time and use the viewing filters to easily explain the results to your patients, ensuring they have a comprehensive understanding of their own oral health.
New Extraction Icons
Dentally's updated extraction icon was introduced recently, making it simpler to indicate extracted teeth and record relevant details. These tooth icons help maintain accurate dental records and facilitate treatment planning. The original cross icon being replaced by a partial cross provides a clear visual representation of extractions on your patient's chart screen.
New X-ray Grading
We know that radiographs play a crucial role in diagnosing and monitoring oral health. The new x-ray grading options enable you to annotate and classify radiographic findings accurately, using the 'Clinically Acceptable' and 'Not Clinically Acceptable' grading options. Grading your radiographs also ensures you can use the radiograph report in Dentally. The report will indicate the percentages graded as Acceptable and Not Acceptable against the standard 95% target in an easy-to-view bar graph.
