Charting a Basic Periodontal Examination from the Chart screen is quick and simple.
If a BPE is due, the BPE tab in the patient’s chart screen will show a red marker.
The patient’s BPE tab will show this red marker if the patient has never had a BPE recorded, or when the time has elapsed that was requested on their last BPE.
Clicking on ‘Record New BPE’ will bring up the BPE score grid.
To add a score to a grid box, click on the box and type the number you require.
To add bleeding, press the ‘B’ key
To add furcation, press the ‘F’ key
The combined score will change as you edit scores in the grid
Setting a score of 1 will automatically also record bleeding in that area
You can set a reminder for the next BPE exam. This will display the red marker again when the time has elapsed.
Once the BPE is complete click ‘Save’ to record the exam
You can remove the Chart if required by clicking the Bin icon by the Chart Score.
To edit a saved chart, you will need to remove the chart and record again.
