ADSTRA Clinical, provides at-a-glance information. The current patient’s name, photo, main information, and alerts are displayed in the center of the screen and the entire patient record is presented and organized in three main partitions:

  • Notes: Alerts & Notes, Forms, Tx Plan, Clinical Notes, Prescriptions, Email & SMS, Documents, Odontogram Text
  • Charts: Odontograms, Perio Exams, Perio Compares, Perio History, Appointments
  • Records: Treatment Log, Financial Activity, Predeterminations, Images, Lab Cases

The three partitions are independent of each other and can be resized by repositioning the two inner dividers, giving extreme flexibility to access relevant details – with more than 100 possible combinations for viewing information.

ADSTRA Clinical, is a fully integrated paperless dental software solution that provides dental offices with a high degree of standardization for clinical notes and treatment planning creation. By using predefined templates typing is minimized, making the process effortless. With this, all staff members (both current and new) will be on the same page when reviewing patient’s clinical records.

ADSTRA Clinical also allows creating fillable forms to be completed by patients on a tablet, which will be automatically imported into ADSTRA Clinical as a note once the provider has reviewed and approved them. The information from these forms can then be extracted via the Forms Templates screen and used for research purposes, as well to establish trends to determine how to better serve your patients. Additionally, the forms can be grouped, making it easier to assign them for completion.

ADSTRA takes pride in ensuring patient information is kept safe and secure and ADSTRA Clinical follows suit. Various features are password protected, and users are assigned roles. These roles grant users permission to complete only certain tasks or functions such as the creation of records by the access-based assistant, and the locking of records by the main provider. For confidentiality purposes, patient names can be hidden from the dashboard, and the only patient information visible is the one currently seated in the treatment room chair.

ADSTRA Clinical is an ideal solution to help your dental clinic flourish and become more effective.

How ADSTRA Clinical Can Help Your Practice Grow

Anyone who has seen a prescription from their doctor, or hand-written dental charts while at their dental appointment can agree – these are some of the most difficult notes to read, unless you are the one who wrote them. When it comes to dental charts, for the most part, dental offices will attempt to implement standard notations, which results in varying degrees of success. In small dental clinics, over time staff members will become familiar with each practitioner’s writing style, however – what happens when there is a turnover in staff? Your dental clinic is back to square one, struggling to read the dental charts.

Within ADSTRA Dental Software, there is the ADSTRA Clinical module. In ADSTRA Clinical, the standard symbols used are clear and easy to read for everyone. This makes it easier for any provider or staff member to read the dental charts and notes created for all patients.

One of the main features within ADSTRA Clinical is the ability to view a patient’s progress over time. The information from the most recent charts can be carried forward on each subsequent chart in their file. Multiple charts can even be opened at the same time, allowing pockets and recessions to be represented graphically within ADSTRA Clinical.

Users are able to set their own preferences for general charts, periodontal charts, restoration materials, connection between procedures, and tools within ADSTRA Charting. Working seamlessly with ADSTRA ManagementADSTRA Clinical allows dental providers to create dental treatment plans, and dental treatment plan charts, that are automatically linked to the treatment and treatment plan logs of each patient.

Here are just a few of the other features available within ADSTRA Clinical:
  • Dental charts can be created for examinations, completed treatment, and planned treatment.
  • The endodontic charting includes tools for mapping root canal treatments and conditions of treated root canals.
  • The periodontal charting includes management of measurements for pocket depths, suppuration, plaque and bleeding, gingival recession, furcation, mobility, and MAG.
  • A number of reports, or the whole chart as you see it on your screen, can be printed.
  • Clinical Notes that are signature protected, with customizable templates and a medical spell-checker.

ADSTRA Clinical not only helps you standardize your clinical charts, which cuts down on the learning curve for new hires, as well as the time spent deciphering each practitioner’s notes – but it is also a crucial step towards making your dental clinic paperless. By being able to define exam templates and incorporate them into their patient’s charts, ADSTRA Clinical also offers dental providers an easy to use, and read, solution to creating your paperless dental clinic.

ADSTRA Clinical, combined with the other modules in the ADSTRA Dental Software suite of products, is the ideal solution to helping your practice grow, increase revenue, and be the most successful that it can be.
