Setting Perio Path

Jump to solution

This may sound like a silly questions but I just want to be sure that setting the path when charting perio can be different at every station.  We have a couple of people that swap operatories certain days of the week.  And is there any way to SET 2 pathways so that it is easier to change the path without having to type in all in.  We have printed out the user manual but when setting the pathway its kind of vague and doesn't go into much detail.  Thanks for any help ... very much appreciate it!

in Softdent you have the option to have 3 user defined perio paths

  1. Open any patient chart.
    2. Switch to PERIO mode.
    3. Click Perio in the main menu bar.
    4. Select Options.
    5. Click Path
    6. Enter the user defined perio path in the available boxes. Several different paths can be defined.
  • FL: Indicates that the path starts on the facial surface and moves toward the left side of the mouth
  • FR: Indicates that the path starts on the facial surface and moves toward the right side of the mouth.
  • LL: Indicates that the path starts on the lingual surface and moves toward the left side of the mouth.
  • LR: Indicates that the path starts on the lingual surface and moves toward the right side of the mouth.
  1. Click OK to save changes.

unfortunately the path selection is workstation specific not user specific , meaning when a user first start using that workstation for the day they need to select the path they are wanting to use , then next day the other user has to re-select their preferred path either path1-path2 or path 3
