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

  5. Font issues

    The font size for the clinical notes section keeps going in and out of a very tiny font and we can't figure our what is going on. Can the fonts be stabilized in this section? Can we be allowed to choose the font we would like on our own system? Except for the appointment book, we are at the mercy of Dentrix's settings for font size.

  6. Allow notes to be assinged to clinical notes

    Allow a clinical note to be assigned to a staff member instead of just a provider. This can be used for things that admin are responsible for, such as Rx and lab communication. I know the journal exisist but it seems more approprate for these notes to be in the chart.

  7. Addition of a recommended treatment button or dial

    Addition of a recommended treatment button or dial in addition to the "existing other", "existing", and "treatment plan" options. For example, a patient is recommended a crown for a tooth, the procedure is marked in red. If the patient denies the crown it would be helpful to have it change to another color and be noted as recommended treatment, rather than just moving it to an alternate plan or removing it altogether where there is no notation on the odontogram in the chart. This way the practitioner knows for future appointments that a procedure was recommend without having to look…

  9. Patient Chart Procedure Codes Search

    It would be great to have a search bar for keywords within the procedure codes on patient chart.

  10. words or phrases can be suggested to use while typing, like a cellphone

    If we are entering a word or phrase that is commonly used, it would be nice if the words were suggested instead of having to type every word or phrase. You could just use the arrow key and incorporate the word or phrase into the text. You see it all the time on cellphones.

  11. Customize what appears in the chart procedure codes before more codes.

    It would help if you were able to customize which procedures appear in the code list before selection of more codes.

  12. Print Date on Treatment Plan

    We print a copy of the Treatment Plan and save a PDF copy to the patient's Document Center for the patient to sign with the ePad II. However, there is not a time or date posted on the Treatment Plan. It was be very very wise for medicolegal purposes to have the date posted on each Treatment Plan indicating when it was devise / printed / given to the patient.

  13. A "back" button on the patient chart would be helpful to "undo" what has been done in case something is entered or deleted by mistake..

  14. G7.1 health history: health history printout needs header w/ practice name, not DENTRIX DENTAL PRACTICE. These are sent for consult.

    G7.1 new health history module. Don't know why it has only taken 30 years for Dentrix to realize health history is part of clinical record, however we welcome this module. We need the ability to change reported date of medical conditions, as some of these were reported 20 years previous, and we must update when the conditions were first medically diagnosed. Header on printed health history should include practice name, not DENTRIX DENTAL PRACTICE. We also need the ability to insert multiple medications at the same time. We need space to continue to add physicians, as many patients have 4…

  15. see text of note, not just note symbol

    Specifically in the Health History Module. For example if a patient is taking a medication for an off-label use or there is another important notation, you have to click on each music note to open. There is plenty of space to show at least the first sentence of the note.

  16. more space for name of medications (generic vs brand)

    Needs to have more space to describe each medication. Should be able to list the brand name and generic on same line. [Example: Metformin (Glucophage)]
    Some patients recognize one or the other. Don't need to have two entries for the same drug with different names.

  17. Please make it possible to put straight line through incorrect note entries.

    Talking about notes that have been entered into incorrect patient's chart.

    Not suggesting to be able to remove a note, just to make it very clear that it does not apply.

  18. Would like to be able to type notes on the patient chart so when the chart is brought up these quick notes are visible. For example: date: n

    Would like to be able to type notes on the patient chart (beside the odontogram) so when the chart is brought up those notes are visible. For example: date: not interested in ortho, or do not ask about brux appliance again. Would be a quick view rather than having to scan the clinical and or progress notes.

  19. tooth shade

    Have a small visible box or tab that we can easily record and then see for future reference the patients tooth shade. I want to be able to open a chart and right away see what shade we have chosen for the patient in the past without having to look through chart notes to find it.

  20. 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!
