Advances in Perio Charting

We just got back from the Greater New York dental conference and I was reminded that I hadn’t updated my blog. It was a very busy meeting, they said there were 59,000 dentists there, plus staff, wow!! It was so nice to see so many software companies that have finally got perio charting in their practice management software suites. The major practice management software companies have had perio charting included but it had amazed me how many didn’t have any perio modules. Those that already have perio charting like Dentrix, EagleSoft, SoftDent, PracticeWorks, Panda Perio etc, the Dental R.A.T. just plugs in and runs. I was so excited that Easy Dental finally got their perio chart and the Dental R.A.T. runs it perfectly too. There are several that have or currently are upgrading their perio modules to run easier with the Dental R.A.T.; like XLDent, MacPractice and The Complete Exam. Its just so nice to have others concentrating on helping us hygienists perio chart easier!

We aren’t left alone to fend for ourselves.

I saw there is now even a perio probe that has a light so its easier for us to see the readings!! How nice! With all the advances in perio charting there is no excuse not doing it and it comes back to us in the long run because it all helps the patient understand their conditions and then they accept our proposed perio treatment.
