  1. Charting Supernumerary Teeth on tooth chart!

    You can treatment plan procedures for supernumerary teeth but can not just chart them and have them visible somehow on the tooth chart. Would be very helpful to see that they are there!

        • report or list of unsigned clinical notes, documents, consent forms, or questionnaires within Dentrix.

          I wish there was a report that we could run to populate any unsigned clinical notes instead of having to go through the charts individually.

          • patient can sign for their pretreatment plan once its assigned

            It would be helpful to have the ability to allow patient to sign for their pretreatment plan once assigned, therefore providing evidence/ acknowledgment that they understand and agree with the treatment plan they're assigned

            • need single click!

              in regards to clinical notes there should be a single click button to open ALL clinical at once like opening a chart so you don't have to keeping clicking every note to find a certain entry. Would be more like scanning all entries at once. Also need a lab entry icon to place all lab entries such as tooth moulds and shades and also crown and bridge shades. Need central area to organize all these with a single click and look. Great ideas huh????? I thought so!!!!

              • Add more space in Health History Note/Not make it a Clinical Note

                We have just recently started to run out of space in Health History note area (G7). It is nice to be able to copy it to a clinical note, but could you give it a different heading, so it stands out a little easier in their chart. You don't know it is a health update unless you double click on Clinical Note.

                  • Automatically invalidate pathology in Chart when treatment is complete

                    When pathology is charted (fractures, caries,abscess, etc), it should be invalidated once the treatment is completed. Currently once the condition is no longer present (the treatment is complete), it is a separate step to find the entry and invalidate it, otherwise the pathology shows up around the new restoration, making it look as if the pathologic condition still exists

                    • Paint

                      It would be great if we could create our own paint types for conditions we have added and be able to design how it is shown in the chart. Also being able to add a text box ( in any size and color) that we can type in and have shown on chart where we want it.

                      • Change provider chart note

                        When I am in the chart, I have to change provider at the top of the screen to Hyg 1 so that when my note is complete it reflects that it was hyg 1. It would be nice for this to default to whoever is signed into this work station/ dentrix. this needs to be for chart Note , not just signature provider, signature provider changes with the setup Clinical Notes Default.

                        • Add title to the date on left side of clinical notes.

                          Adding a title to the clinical note date on the left side, so every appointment or procedure that was done on a patient is easily located, instead of clicking through all of the notes to find certain information.
                          Example:
                          You open patients chart, and click on clinical notes. On the left side there's a list of dates. You need to find out information about what happened on a certain appointment, but you have to click through all the dates and times and read through all of the notes to find the information.
                          It would be easier to type a title…

                            We are a pediatric office who is now partnering with an Orthodontist and need the ability to chart ortho services. ie If we place a bracket on #19 we should be to visually see a band wrapped around #19 in the patient chart or if a power chain is done from #19 to #30 we can see a braided line that spans over the facial surfaces from 19 - 30.

                                There should be a way to merge patient charts like x-rays can. Some times people enter someone twice without realizing it and work from both people.

                                  If we could embed a direct link into the patient's chart note that will directly open up a specific file in their document center. Maybe for a form, etc. This would be very helpful.

                                  • clinical notes

                                    Some other similar ideas are posted here; this is our contribution: how about a color coded system so that when clinical notes are posted for the day and "saved" in the chart that it changes the appt a pre-selected color. This will indicate, by looking at the schedule, which patient notes are complete and which still need to be done. A color coding or small logo?? Thank you! ~Kim

                                    • Patient chart clinical notes duplication/deletion

                                      Please consider a pop-up alert if someone else is entering clinical notes at the same time you want to do the same. At this time we have no idea when someone else in the ofc is posting notes and when this happens, only one set of notes survives! If there is a lot of documentation, this is a killer! Thank you! ~Kim smile@missionbaydentist.com
