The Use of a Touch-screen Computer for Dental Charting
This paper describes a computer software package which enables a dentist to maintain a database of patient records and to chart a patient’s teeth directly into the computer via a touch screen. The monitor screen can display all 32 adult teeth at once, or any of the four quadrants, or a single tooth. In this way it is possible to replace completely the usual paper records. However, at any given time, it is possible to obtain a print out of the patient’s dental chart and the other patient details, eg age, NHS number etc, at the touch of a key.
