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 Note option in the Charting Options Menu creates a clinical note line in the Clinical Note Table, located at the bottom of the Restorative Charting window. A clinical Note can then be edited to enter any information related to the selected tooth.
Another way to create a clinical note is to click the plus at the right corner of the Clinical Note Table. This will create a new note associated to the selected tooth or teeth. If no teeth are selected, the clinical note will be created, but will not be associated to a specific tooth. To delete a Clinical Note, highlight the line item from the Clinical Note Table and press the delete key.
