What is an Allowance Table in Softdent? I never really had any formal training on the insurance portion of softdent and have not seen this before.
Thank you for joining the community! Yes, SoftDent has allowance tables. The best place to get started understanding how to setup and use these is in the Help area (Help -> SoftDent Help) on your main toolbar at the top of your screen.
We have a large number of free new employee training sessions on our Carestream Dental Institute portal, I encourage you to take advantage of these...they're very helpful.

Hi ambrunst983! You are able to link an allowance table to an insurance plan to create a bluebook automatically.
As Jeff mentioned, there is some great information in the online help.
I also looked up your account with us, and you are on a support maintenance plan which gives you access to our Carestream Dental Institute. I will get you a log-in today, so be on the lookout for an email that will have log-in instructions! There is a lot of great training material in there regarding insurance(recordings, job aids, handouts, etc.) as well as new employee learning plans.
If you don't receive the Carestream Dental Institute log-in instruction email today, or if you have any questions let me know!
Allowance tables are a list of the negotiated rates by PPO plans. Also, if you are not in network with a plan, it is a wonderful tool to store the Allowable amounts by each plan, ie: DElta, metlife, aetna, etc.
Secondary to Allowance tables are Bluebooks, these play an important role in your treatment planning capabilities.
Thank you for the help.
