How can we improve Dentrix?

Combine Same Patient with Two Duplicate Accounts

Where duplicate accounts have been created for the same patient, offer a way to combine the two records into one.

        I agree! Why doesn't Dentrix have this ability yet? It has been suggested by users since 2010! That is 7 years people......

        It certainly would be useful to be able to merge two charts for the same patient (when one was created in error).

        Sometimes a patient is created as a new patient even though they are already existing in the system. If work is done under the new patient file there should be a way to merge the two patient files together so as not to have to transfer each item individually.

        Can Dentrix show the previous record of a patient being entered a second time by mistake alerting 'a duplicate record has been found'.

        WE NEED A WAY TO LINK ACCOUNTS THAT HAVE THE SAME NAME AND DATE OF BIRTH WITHOUT COPYING EVERYTHING ON THE OLD ACCOUNT AND RE-ENTERING NEW ACCOUNT.

        If this has been suggested since 2010 I think it is time dentrix joins the other programs out there where you have that ability. I have worked multiple systems and this is the only system that you don't have that opportunity.

        Sometimes over the years, a patient came in and then came back 10 + years later. But a new family file/chart was opened. It would be nice to be able to merge the two files/charts together.

        Dentrix should automatically identify if new patient demographics, when entered, match or are similar to an existing account. This should trigger a pop up that requires review of similar accounts prior to completion of an additional account.

        We saw a patient in 2014 and he didn't tell us we had seen him. We made him a new chart. I need to merge the 2 files together because we now have 2 charts for him.

        I would like to be able to access the family file or patient chart from within the office journal.

        We need a feature to merge two patients together sometimes people make a mistake and enter the patient twice. Thanks

        This may already be mentioned, but I could not find anything similar. We have a patient that has two family files. She came in for many years and then moved away, and when she came back somebody created a new file for her and put her in as a new patient. She only has one visit under the new file. It would be great if there was a way to merge to two files into one patient. Not like merging families, but just the individual so that all notes, x-rays, charges, etc. are included in one single chart!
