Periodontal Chart (FAQ)
How do I start a new Perio Chart?
To start a new Perio Chart, click on the New Chart icon. When the Chart Description window opens, select the desired title and click OK. To create a new description, click on the new description icon (the paper with a yellow plus).
What are Diagnostic and Compare?
The Diagnostic View, which is the first screen that comes up when opening the Perio Chart, allows you to look at each saved chart individually to see the measurements. You can switch the chart you are viewing by choosing the desired chart from the exam history window on the right side of the screen.
The Compare View allows you to compare the measurements from one exam to another. You can compare an older chart to a newer one to show how the patient has improved or worsened, which is a handy patient education tool. It is shown in an easy to understand line graph format that clearly shows which areas have shown improvement (green) and which have worsened (red).
Where do I set my Perio Chart defaults?
To setup your charting defaults, click on the Setup menu and click on the Charting Defaults option. On the General tab, customize each of the Measurement types. Choose a color, decide which measurement the program will move to, select if the program will automatically move to the next measurement, and if the measurement will show or not. The most common setup would be to do Pocket Depth with the next measurement as Pocket Depth and auto-move checked off. Then decide the exam sequence that works best for you. The advanced tab contains settings specifically for the Pocket Depth and Recession measurements. To learn more about setting up your Perio chart defaults, view the help video below.
