Charting Menu - Bridge/FPD

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 Charting Menu can be accessed by right clicking on a tooth. 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. 

At least two teeth need to be selected to use the Bridge/FPD node within the charting menu. Two teeth can be selected by left clicking and dragging a box around the selection. Once the teeth are highlighted, right click to open the charting menu.


By default, MacPractice will pull the fee schedule and the provider from the patient demographics. This information can be changed on the fly if needed for the patient visit. 

Start by selecting the crown type within the charting menu. MacPractice will allow the user to select between full and partial crown. 

Once the type has been selected, move to the material and choose from the present options. This field will change based on the options entered into the charting code map

Notice how the selected teeth change while selections are being made to the type and material. Selecting a tooth will allow the user to mark if it is a retainer or a pontic tooth. The selection to skip the tooth is also present for this charting. 

The table below the graphic will update to display the codes that will be added to the patient's record. These codes can be adjusted, added to, or removed within the table. Once complete click OK to add this graphic to the chart and to add a line item to the clinical notes table.
