Using Dentrix Voice Perio is like having an electronic hygiene assistant. All you need to do is speak measurement numbers and conditions — as you normally would — and the results are automatically entered into the patient's perio exam for you.

Dentrix Voice Perio is an add-on feature that requires a separate subscription.
A headset with a microphone, or a lapel mic, is recommended to help eliminate background noise as you speak to Voice Perio.
To ensure that your mic is connected to your workstation and working properly, in Windows, open Settings > System > Sound. Then, make sure that your mic is selected on the "Input" tab, and test the mic if needed.
As an added convenience, you can choose the Bola Migration Path script to enter data. It has a preset script to get you started; however, you can also use the preset scripts from Dentrix or use a customized script that your office created.
Select Quick View to open the quick view window, which displays the commands and measurements as you speak them. You can toggle this feature on and off.
If the software fails to respond, repeat the tooth number and command to resume. You can also speak "undo" to remove the previous entry and redo it.
Whenever an action is required for the Bola.Ai interface, the microphone icon turns orange, and a "required action" is displayed. You must complete the action before the interface allows you to proceed.
