Software Tip: the Florida Probe Software can increase production and efficiency
The Florida Probe System http://www.floridaprobe.com/fpsystem01.htm with FP32 Perio Software is a computerized probe (FP Handpiece) and Footswitch that works with our FP32 perio software to transform your computer into a computerized probing station!
You can Probe, Chart, Educate and Motivate your patients to accept needed treatment with this all-inclusive System.
The System acts as your computerized assistant for the periodontal exam – only one examiner required. This ultimately increases office productivity, because you won’t need other staff members to chart while you are probing.
The System’s constant-force, computerized probe with precision of 0.2mm allows measurements to be consistent between examiners who likely probe with different amounts of force (which could mean different readings for the same patient), improves the accuracy of measurements and assists the clinician in determining the correct diagnosis and follow-up for the patient.
Instead of having to try and read the thin bands on a regular periodontal probe and estimate pocket depth, just bring the blue sleeve of the FP Handpiece down to the gingival margin, tap the Footswitch, and your numerical data is recorded. No need to say the numbers– the System does this for both the patient’s benefit as well as your own (sound can also be turned off or customized).
The exam can be customized to record all or some of the following information: dentition, medical history, risk assessment, recession and hyperplasia, gingival attachment, pocket depth, bleeding, suppuration, furcation, plaque, mobility, MGJ, and diagnosis.
The Florida Probe System provides exceptional clinical and legal documentation. Use the resulting periodontal chart to create a “treatment map” for scaling and root planing, subgingival antimicrobials or even laser use. Combined with the patient diagnosis sheet, the duo becomes a legal record and informed consent to protect your practice.
Florida Probe’s software and equipment seamlessly integrate into your practice management workflow. We link with over 40 different Practice Management Software providers, including Dentrix, DSN Software, Eaglesoft, PRACTICEWORKS, and SOFTDENT.
