  1. case severity

    add another color "light"
    have the ability to customize the description of the case severity "lights" for example call it "urgent" instead of immediate and "next" instead of optional.

  2. Allow transaction date to be saved as default when running billing

    Currently any transaction is defaulted to 30 days unless you set the date every time you do the billing. It does not allow you to save the date as a default option.

  4. Name changes-Gray Box pops up....

    When there is a patient that has a name change a gray box will pop up and ask if this is the same person with the same SSN. You are asked to choose YES or No. You should have another box pop open if the "NO" box is clicked asking if you are sure you want to choose "NO'- as all photos and x-rays are then lost for the patient and can not be retrieved.

  6. a method to note that xrays were viewed by the doctor

    after the hygienest takes xrays the pt may be dismissed and the dr could be busy seeing another pt..it would be great to be able to click a button and bring up any pt with xrays not Dx by the DR..a simple check would denote viewing of all xrays looked at

  8. Allow for negative gingival margin numbers for more accurate CAL calculations

  9. Be able to number appointments scheduled for an individual patient for multiple appointments.

    for patients that schedule multiple appointments for treatment it would be nice if they were numbered. such as crown prep and cement appointment. so that if there is a need to change the first appointment it is flagged to change second appointment as well.

  12. Practice Assistant: Allow SMTP mail configuration

    The Practice Assistant only allows reports to be automagically emailed via Exchange. Please, please, please allow an SMTP mail service to be specified so that providers and administrators can get reports via e-mail in a non-Exchange environment.

  13. Estimating pending insurance

    We need to see how much insurance is estimated from a single patient on the route slip. Currently the insurance estimate box will estimate the ENTIRE family on the ledger. Very confusing if everyone on the ledger has claims pending.

  14. Should be able to hit the plus button to move to the next day instead of the arrows

    When looking through the appointment schedule you should be able to hit the plus button instead of the arrows to move to the next day.

  15. Font Color Choices in Guarantor Notes

    I would like to see different font color choices in my guarantor notes. I tend to write lengthy notes and sometimes I want some of them to STAND OUT!! I don't need an entire color pallet, just the basics. Red, Blue, maybe green.

  16. Expand "Data Fields" to include insurance ID# since it is no longer the SS#

    I truly appreciate the patient report capability. However, I need to be able to capture the insurance id# in order to save time with the verification process.

  17. charting

    When charting initial exams, there should be way to save this exam for future questions on existing restorations or missing teeth. At this time, every new treatment overrides the previous entry.

  19. Delete multiple insurance claims at once when archiving patients

    When archiving a patient who has previous insurance claims, you have to delete all claims, individually. Very time consuming.

  20. Simplify Tx. plan presentation

    Do not list fee for every line of tx. Only total per visit w/ Patient Portions.
    Make user friendly descriptions shorter, for ex. Tooth colored filling. Stainless steel crown.
    Total tx. plan totals for ins and pt. portion can be listed on bottom.
