How ADSTRA Charting 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 Charting module. In ADSTRA Charting, 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 Charting 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 Charting.

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 Charting 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 Charting:
  • 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.

ADSTRA Charting 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 Charting also offers dental providers an easy to use, and read, solution to creating your paperless dental clinic.
