  1. Purging of older treatment not completed

    It would be a bonus to have the ability to clean up unscheduled treatment plans after a specified time frame...1 year???
    Possibilities could involve the option of deletion or carry-over at the end of year, similiar to prompt for insurance payments at Yr. End. If you have ever run your unscheduled trt. plan report and found it to be lengthy and not current, then this would be an idea...

  3. Save treatment plan date

    Currently Dentirx overrides the treatment plan date with the date of service as it is completed. Unless you print the treatment plan and save it to the documents center. There should be a way to document diagnosis date in the patient record in a permanent fashion without having to go about it in an indirect way.

  4. Update Audit Trail Report for Prescriptions

    You should be able to run and audit trail of every person who generated a prescription. Right now, it only shows who deleted the prescriptions. Trust me, it needs to show it all for this catagory!!!!!!!!!

  5. Use tab key to move through templates in Clinical notes

    Restore function on being able to use tab key to move through fields on custom templates in Clinical notes. This makes using templates much faster than clicking on "OK" after using each field.

  7. View appointments from ledger

    There should be an easy way to view patient appointments and any family members upcoming appointments while in the ledger. Patients are often asking while checking out when next appointments are & either you need to wait until you finish what your doing in ledger & print a walk out or go back into the appointment book. There should be any easier way to just have the info infront of you when work in any dentrix module.

  8. Allow the Pre-Treatment Estimate Aging report to be printed excluding archived patients.

    Allow the Pre-Treatment Estimate Aging Report to be printed excluding archived patients. It would be more useful as a tracking method.

  9. referred treatment

    When having to refer treatment to another provider in the patient chart--it would be nice to be able to select multiple procedures and refer them all at once to a provider, instead of clicking on individual procedures and referring one at a time.

  11. Unscheduled treatment plans report

    We'd like to be able to delete the treatment plan from the treatment plan report when a patient leaves the practice or becomes inactive without deleting the recorded treatment plan in the patient charting. How can you keep the treatment plan on record without having it come up in the unscheduled treatment plans report?

  12. More flexibility in setting up Provider Schedule

    Similar to issue addressed in Setting up open days. When a manual entry is needed to add a doctor to a day, the screen accepts the hours, but those hours do not link to reports or other areas that determine a provider's actual TRUE - REAL TIME schedule. Setting up an entire month of (ie) Wednesdays, then blocking out three via Vacation is not the answer as this method just skews the reports to the point of being useless information.

  13. Appointment provider options

    If the user has selected a specific provider, don't automatically change the provider to the continuing care provider when continuing care is attached or to the treatment plan provider when treatment plan procedures are attached to the appointment.

  14. Toolbar to launch more DENTRIX applications

    Make it easier to go to different areas of DENTRIX for a specific patient. For example, when the user right-clicks on a name in the Select Patient screen, it should display a pop-up menu of modules and dialogs to switch to for that patient. Need a "Home Screen" or launching point to navigate through the program. It should be customizable and the user should be able to add links or buttons to other, third-party applications. [3840 3922]

  16. Attach a document to an appointment

    We scan scripts into document center for treatment prescribed by other doctors. Our Drs currently have to open up the document center and search for the correct document before treating. It would be nice if we could attach a scanned document to an actual appointment so all the Dr has to do is click on the attachment to view recommended treatment.

  17. ortho

    It would be nice to have the entire dental & ortho patient record, images, financials, contract etc under one software, since there are not much different interms of images, record, insurance. The ortho contract can already been set up in dentrix. In my view the amount of further we need to do is little to get the Dentrix do Ortho as well as dental.

  18. Would like to have two appointment statuses - one for confirmation, one for treatment type

    I would like to have two columns for appointment status in the schedule. One column for confirmation status (as comes preset in Dentrix) and another for the procedure type, such as crown or filling or exam or implant. This way, from across the room it can be seen what type of appointment is next and if the patient is confirmed at the same time, without having to read it in the appointment box or click onto the appointment.

  19. Data Field for patient's Medical Doctor or Pediatrician

    I use Dentrix for pediatric dental patients. One important tracking indicator is the PEDIATRICIAN. I would like to have a data field for a family physician or pediatrician to be added. The hope is that I could subsequently sort patients by primary MD. This is good record keeping and allows an easy place to access important information about each patient's primary doctor.

  20. Zero Insurance Payment

    When you post a zero payment there needs to be a way to set the claim back to outstanding? You receive the zero payment but you need to make a change to the claim or send additional information. Once the zero payment is posted the claim is cleared and no longer shows on the oustanding claim reports.
