Abstract: Significant technological advances have been realized in the area of dental charting. Specifically, in the area of periodontal charting, voice-activation is improving the exam speed while eliminating transcription errors. In addition, innovative graphical user interfaces help dental providers focus more on the patient and less on how to use the software. Automating the analysis and comparison of periodontal exams provides timely information to the dental provider, thus enabling further focus on the patient needs. These are the areas that are addressed by the newly released DenChart™ solution, and that will be illustrated and discussed during the session.
