The Chart

Charting Overview

The centre two rows of teeth are the patient’s base chart. Ther outer rows are where work is proposed and charted, before it is committed to the base chart lines.

The Change View button allows you to switch between decidious and permanent teeth, or a mixed view of both.

Hovering the mouse pointer over a tooth will show the history of treatment charted on it, showing who charted the treatment, when it was charted and the plan it was charted on or whether it is on the base chart.

Base Chart - This will filter the list to only show treatments that have been set as ‘Available in the Base Chart’. This can be set in the Treatments and Plans section of your settings menu.

Treatment Category - Each treatment will be assigned a category; Restorations, Dentures, etc. These can be altered in the Treatments and Plans section of your settings menu.

Treatment Plans

Any open treatment plans will be shown by the tab showing their unique treatment number. A new treatment plan can be created by clicking the + button.

History

This will show the history of any treatments added for this patient. As a default, this list will be filtered to only show those treatments marked as Complete. Changing the filter at the top of the list will allow you to show incomplete treatments too, or remove items added to the Base Chart.

This will show any previous BPE Charts recorded for the patient. Add a new Chart by clicking on the Record New BPE button. If a BPE Chart is due to be taken, a red marker will be shown on the tab.
