This module provides knowledge about dental charting procedures.

The dental assistant plays an important role in the process of oral diagnosis and treatment planning, and uses dental charting as a tool to classify and record this health information about a patient. Learn how to document preexisting restorations and conditions, current treatment needs, and periodontal health. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers clinical scenarios that test your ability to perform dental charting. Practice the steps of the procedures online as often as you want, until you feel confident.


You'll learn 

  • how to prepare the dental chart
  • the differences in tooth diagrams, including anatomical and geometric charting using the Universal/National Numbering System
  • how to record findings on a dental chart
  • the steps for periodontal charting
  • much more (see Content Details for more specific information)

The SIMTICS modules are all easy to use and web-based. This means they are available at any time as long as the learner has an internet connection. No special hardware or other equipment is required, other than a computer mouse for use in the simulations. Each of the SIMTICS modules covers one specific procedure or topic in detail. Each module contains:

  • an online simulation (available in Learn and Test modes)
  • descriptive text, which explains exactly how to perform that particular procedure including key terms and hyperlinks to references
  • 2D images and a 3D model of applied anatomy for that particular topic
  • a step by step video demonstration by an expert
  • a quiz
  • a personal logbook that keeps track of all the modules the learner has studied and how long
