Helping You Do More with Your Dentrix System

Not only can Dentrix help you record perio probing measurements, but it can also help you document the patient’s periodontal condition. The Exam Information panel gives you a quick and easy template for creating perio exam notes.

In Perio Notes, click on each note and select a value from each drop-down menu.

Select a Periodontal Case Type, Patient Status, Perio Status, and add Miscellaneous Notes as needed.

After filling in these values, you can easily turn these answers into a clinical note. Click Copy to Clipboard.

Open the Clinical Notes panel (If you don’t see it at the bottom of the Perio window, click the View menu and select Clinical Notes Panel).
Create a new note, and select the Paste button.

The perio exam information is added as a clinical note and can be seen from the Patient Chart as well.
