Visual treatment plans allows you to communicate with patients in a way that complex clinical language 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 and click Create New Treatment Plan. The template will automatically add the patients information at the top of the plan, you can click to unselect any patient information that you do not wish to include.
