  1. Dentrix should be able to generate & print a patient's age & gender on lab scripts.

    Most labs need a patient's age and gender. It would be great to have the option to add this information to the lab script instead of having to write it in under the note section.

    It would also be nice to have the option to print the actual time a patient is scheduled to return on the lab script.

  2. Change lab slip color on Appointment

    Would love to have the "L" on the appointment change colors when the case has been marked as received. That way we can know from the schedule if we are missing a case without having to open the lab manager.

  3. Lab Case Manager Cost Summary

    It would be nice to have an option to be able to print a summary of the costs input into lab case manager. So at the end of the month, we can print it out and figure out how much we are spending on lab fees. This would be an amazing feature for offices that still use labs!

  5. Lab case alerts

    It would be nice to have a general alert show up on the schedule a couple days before a lab case it due back so that we can follow through and make sure we have all we need BEFORE the patient comes in the door. For instance, if I create a lab case for J.Smith and he is scheduled for Jan 30, it would be so great if on Jan 28 there was an alert on the schedule that a lab case is due in two days so that we can follow up and make sure it's been delivered, or…

  6. Lab Case follow up reminder

    The tracker/manager is very useful to indicate current labs that are sent out. Another way to prevent any lab cases from being left to the side/forgotten/falling through the cracks is by having a pop-up reminder appearing on the appointment book.

    By being able to set up an alert in let say... 1 week, the office can follow up with the laboratory and check for the status of the lab case. This way the office can catch if the shipped out lab case was misplaced or received by the laboratory. Additionally this can be a way to help remind the office…

  8. Lab Case Manager - allow tracking number COLUMN

    Would like to see a column added to the Lab Case Manager for the TRACKING NUMBER. We send cases out in large groups to an out of state lab. We would like to be able to see a list of cases in that tracking group. The lab case itself already has a place to enter the tracking number in the individual cases. Would be nice to be able to see that tracking number on the Lab Case Manager screen.

  9. To be able to reprint a lab prescription once it's been written and printed. We had to use the snip it tool to screen shot and then re-print

    Make an option to reprint a lab case prescription. It only prints when the lab case is created, if for any reason you need to reprint that same exact lab prescription you are not able to.

  10. I was looking for a way to track lab cases by due date. A way to run a report daily to see what cases are due back that day.

  13. Have an option to use provider info for lab case prescriptions

    I would like to have the option to use provider info for lab cases so that the address in the lab prescription would be the address associated with the provider chosen in the family file. We have 10 doctors and multiple locations, and have to cross out and handwrite the address each time because it can only default to 1 of our addresses.

  16. Lab Manager load cases from newest to oldest

    Have the Lab Manager load the most current cases first so we can stop the lab manager from loading once it has 25 or 50 cases on the screen. If it's loading from the newest, that will give us the information we are looking for more quickly.

  18. Make it so we can enter most current labs first on list

    When entering labs the most current ones added are at the bottom of the list. It would be nice to be able to put labs that we are currently using at the top of the list due to not having to scroll down to the bottom of the list all the time.

  19. In lab manager, it would be great to have an alert, warning or a highlight to indicate a case was not received by the received date.

    In lab manager, it would be great to have an alert, warning or a highlight to indicate a case was not received by the received date. This would allow the office to call the lab and find out what is the delay and make sure a patient is not coming in for nothing.

  20. Lab Case reports

    Dentrix please allow lab cases to be exported to excel.

    The current set up pulls up the monthly report but it sends it to batch one case at time.

    I would like to be able to export my entire monthly cases to excel to compare the names and charges we are receiving from all the labs we use.

    Thank you :)
