  1. Dentrix Schedule Times Adjustment

    So many procedures in dentistry are done alone and as part of a procedure. It would be nice to be able to choose which one and have the procedure time not add to the appointment. For instance, a pulp test alone can take 20 minutes of time, but when doing it as part of a crown prep, it could just be part of the major process time and not add to the whole overall time.

  2. You should be able to view the day note, but not edit it. They should be two separate options

    You should be able to view the day note, but not edit it. Currently you can limit access to editing the day notes, but unfortunately this does not allow just viewing the day note. They should be two separate options.

  3. Please make a way to alter the time patterns, we have to remove provider time from every recare appointment manually

    Please make a way to alter the time patterns so the provider isn't automatically selected. When we make recare appointments we have to manually remove the provider X from each one so we can schedule 3 at a time. It doesn't take a lot of time, but a little bit for every patient. It would be quicker if we could remove that one time and be done with it. Thanks!

  4. Bring back the name field after you put in your User ID in Dentrix 7.1.

    You took away the field that displayed my name after I put in my userID, my password is complex and sometimes I mistype it. I spent 5 minutes trying to get my password right this morning and it turned out that I had typed in my userID wrong.

  5. Script to Apply Hours changes to the Appointment Book

    Our office hours changed. I inputted the new hours into the Appointment book but to see the new hours on a given day, I have to update that day. Have to Update Operatory Schedule or refresh each day before seeing the new hours. Should be able to run a script that applies the new hours to all the days.

  6. Scheduling appointment

    When creating an appointment, I have noticed that I am no longer able to put a Status in the appointment and then place on pinboard to schedule. I have to schedule appointment into appropiate time then go back into appt. to add status. G7 doesn't seem to be very efficient on the scheduling ;(

  8. Need a floating calendar (like Practice Works) on appointment page.

    Don't like how have to close Dentrix's calendar (month) on the appointment page each time a month is chosen. I'm a new Dentrix user and so far most things are superior to Practice Works. On PW, the calendar stays on the appointment page (and doesn't close) when you go from day to day. This makes scheduling more efficient.

  10. Add a delete button to unscheduled appointments

    The only place that unscheduled appointments can be deleted is from the unscheduled list. So if I am in the treatment planner trying to find patients to schedule for treatment or selecting a patient to create a new appointment and see a duplicate appointment or treatment that has already been completed I can not delete the extra unscheduled appointment. I either have to put it in the schedule and THEN delete or search the patient in the unscheduled list, find the appointment, and then delete. It would be much easier to just add a delete button in the appointment pop…

  12. appointment status visibility and visibility through taskbar

    I think every one uses the appointment status colors in different way but the downfall of it is that it can only be seen from the appointment book window. Many times I've been typing notes or working in a different window of Dentrix and I have not notice that my front desk as checked my next patient in for me to take back and they had to actually come back and tell me that my px is ready for me.

    All this could be solved by placing a "light" that changes color only for the next oncoming patient for a…

  15. Change the appointment search patient lookup to be the same as the patient lookup in other modules (like family file). Must type in the comp

    When using the appointment search function, it sure would be nice if the patient lookup was the same as in family file, ledger, etc. Currently required to enter the entire last name vs. typing the first few letters and getting a drop down list of patients.

  16. Edit the "broken appointment" time for x # of days. For instance, a cxl appt 3 days in advance is not considered "broken".

    Be able to edit the # of days that is considered a "broken" appointment vs a "cancelled" appt or even better - assign either broken or cancelled.
