  1. 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.

    • Perio Chart Enhancement

      When viewing perio charting exams, it would be nice to see the provider's initials with the date of the exam. Especially when comparing perio chart exams imported from another office. For example we import all perio exams sent from periodontist office, however, we can not label they have come from another office.

          • Saving signature

            When the doctor signs the clinical notes it should be able to save my signature so that i dont have to keep using the mouse to sign it. Have the system save it into the software automatically.

            • Pre-Med Alert

              I would like to see a different icon option for the patient to show if there is a pre-med vs just having the medical alert "red cross" button.

              • Attaching tooth number and procedures to clinical notes

                We should be able to attach a tooth number and procedure code to clinical notes. Dentrix has the clinical notes set up for us to use templates to aid in writing the clinical note for specific procedures we do, however, since there is no way to add a tooth number to the note it becomes difficult to find the note for a tooth without looking through every note or try to find it by comparing dates. If we could attach teeth to these notes, we could then just click the tooth column above progress notes and see everything attached to…

                • 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.

                        • Charting Orthodontics

                          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.

                            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

                              - 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!

                              • 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.

                                • 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.

                                      • Progress notes

                                        Regarding Progress Notes:

                                        Imagine youre a dental assistant and youre going to review a patients chart so you're an informed employee to the doctor.

                                        You navigate to the progress notes tab so you can see Clinical Notes / Completed Work / TP'd work / Etc. Because you know that its easier to find the info you need here versus the clinical notes section where you have to open each dated tab.

                                        Once youre in the progress notes, its a long list ordered how you choose but typically by date.

                                        When you scroll the scrolling is very JUMPY! You will feel…

                                        • Add chart features specific to sleep dentistry

                                          We want to see a feature that shows treatment planned and completed items specific to sleep apnea. For example if we have planned to send a patient home with a pulse ox the chart could have a red "PO" to the left of the teeth indicating that it's planned, or a blue "PO" indicating that it was completed. Same goes for a home sleep test, a red "HST" indicating that it's planned, or Blue "HST" to indicate it's completed.

                                          We also will plan for devices such as an orthotic or oral sleep appliance. It would be great to have the…
