The Charting Menu can be accessed by right clicking on a tooth within the patients chart. Notice that the tooth will be highlighted to confirm that the correct selection was made. The charting menu will act as the platform for entering any procedures or annotations to the patient's record. Before using the charting menu, select the correct view within the dental tab. Procedures that were completed outside of the office should be recorded in the Patient Chart. Procedures completed in the office should be charted within the Completed Procedures. Items that are planned for the future should be recorded under the treatment plan chart.
The Root Canal option in the Charting Options Menu displays the root canal codes in the selected Fee Schedule that were added by the Charting Code Map. Codes that can not be used on the selected tooth will be displayed in a light grey color. Select the correct root canal code and click the Ok button to add this procedure into the patient's chart.
A colored canal will be displayed on the tooth to identify where the procedure was completed outside of the office, completed in the office, or treatment planned for the future. This color will be decided in the charting option menu.
