  1. It would be great if we could run a report to see who does not have a clinical note for that day.

    • 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!

        • make periodontitis classifications

          Please change the Perio Classifications in the perio charting from Type to Stage I through IV and add another classification based on grade A through C. Do not change any of the patients' previous history. I am a practice manager using Dentrix software. We had a Periodontal seminar regarding the new disease classification because it has changed since the last World Workshop of 2017 and the current Perio Clinical notes tab doesn't reflect this. There is already a request for this for Easy dental.

            • 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.

              • Eliminate/Combine Duplicate Patient Charts

                System to recognize combinations of duplicate:
                - first and last names
                - phone numbers
                - date of births
                - address'

                Would help to more accurately manage patient care.

                Or at least offer ability to merge patient family file, clinical notes, treatment plan, x-rays, document center docs, ledger info., really everything!

                • Health History Module Database Medications & Allergies

                  We need a database of common medications and allergies already loaded into the software so I don't have to add each allergy and medication and create my own data base. This would also apply to common Medical conditions. Also add a supplements tab.

                      • Allow the option to merge clinical notes for same day of service

                        Our doc likes for things to be completed as they are done - G5 would all go into 1 clinical notes for the same day of service. Can we have the OPTION to combine? A button in office settings, or a box in the corner of the clinical note that can be checked to allow clinical notes to merge for same day of service would be a huge help.

                        • Custom signatures

                          Providers should be allowed to create their own custom signatures so that the signature looks and feels the way the provider wants when signing his/her note. Clinical notes are a very personal thing and I personally don't like the indent with all of the little "--------------" dash marks. Like so many aspects of Dentrix that have been neglected by development through the years, this goes towards personal use and the personal experience. The software needs to be more customizable (font choices for notes, bold, italics, underline and bullets...) Charting also comes to mind here in terms of making it more…

                            When entering a new burst code, have an easier way to go back only one step if correction is needed instead of having to go back to beginning.

                            • Clinical notes

                              Clinical notes would automatically close out overnight and now you have to schedule close out every month under task manager. It seemed more secure to have them automatically close out.

                                Rita,

                                Can you clarify this for me? You can still sign clinical notes and that will lock them as soon as they are signed. You can also setup clinical notes to age on a daily basis with the task scheduler, whereas you could only do that on a monthly basis previously. Please let me know if there is something I’m missing or if your are seeing something different than I have described.

                              • It would be nice to have an undo button on the patient chart tool bar

                                  • inactivating health condition won't allow us to activate the health condition ever again

                                    Please allow us to modify health conditions in the new health history module. We would like to inactivate the condition if it no longer applies but be able to reactivate it if the patient has that condition again. This current way makes no sense.

                                      For proper charting, would like the "S" for sealant to also show on the buccal surface, not just occlusal

                                      • Unsigned Chart Notes

                                        I would be beneficial to our practice if there was a report that would show us unsigned or incomplete chart notes.

                                        • I need to know if there is a way now, to set a color to a treatment that is referred?

                                          I would like to be able to set a treatment in the chart a different color when we are referring it. Red in the chart says there is tx to be done, i would like the root canal, that we are referring to be yellow, to show its needed but sent to the endodontist.
