Visual treatment plans allows you to communicate with patients in a way that dental jargon does not. When you are proposing treatment to a patient visual treatment plans allow you to SHOW your patient what they need and why they need it instead of listing tooth numbers and surfaces that don’t make any sense to them.
Handing patients a treatment plan with photos will boost case acceptance because they no longer just have to take your word for it and their spouse/partner/parent/child will be able to also understand the need for treatment even if they weren’t present at the appointment.
Visual treatment plans allow you to add images, notes and proposed procedure codes so that your patients can make a fully informed decision.
Creating the visual treatment plan is simple and quick. Go to the Treatment Plan Builder tab within a patient record. Check the types of information you would like to include from the list on the left.
After you have selected the types of information you want to include you will need to go into each section and edit the information you want to include. You do this by clicking the Edit button next to each type of information.
