      • patient picture

        A picture big enough to actually see on the appointment box itself. Greeting patients by name is so important.

        • Error in Posting

          When a person posts and signs treatment on the wrong patient's chart is there a way to draw a line through the posting with the e Pad and initial the correction.

              • Allowing us to choose which plan is primary and which is secondary.

                There are now some plans that stipulate that they must be second payor. I called support and was told that I must "change the date of birth to trick the computer." Sometimes that does not work!

                      • bulk insurance check posting

                        Posting often requires sending a statement for outstanding balance. I would welcome the ability to go to other areas in the ledger, but still maintain the integrity of posting that check.

                        • Less tempermental patient records

                          Very slight updates to patient records cause xrays to be orphaned. Unlike in Dentrix 11. Tech says nothing can be done. So I am submitting this as an enhancement request.

                          • Heading (Patients Name)

                            I would like to see the Heading changed to a white background with Bold Black Letters.
                            It is hard to see clearly.
                            instead of blue background with white letters.
                            THank you,

                            • Heading Pt. name

                              Would like to see the Name of the patient in bold letters without the blue background.
                              White background with Black Bold letters.

                              • Create an Alert box on Dentrix desktop showing all changes to patients chart since the last visit.

                                By creating this box you will see anything that has been added to the chart after the last visit. This will prevent important information from bing missed in areas like the Doc center or health history.

                                • Scheduled production monthly view

                                  It would be nice to be able to print out the scheduled monthly production and not just one month but every month on one single sheet of paper. Much as you would view a calendar but on the on the last page of that calendar, where all 12 months are shown on that one page. I see it being helpful with picking the next years vacations and days off. We schedule up to a year ahead and if we know with a quick glance what days are already filled (they show high production numbers) then we know to look for…

                                  • Appt information -- 'more info'

                                    When you are in the appt. information box and click on 'more info' it should have a scroll bar on the side. On my laptop I am not able to see the full window and therefore cannot click on 'close'. I have to do an End Task function to get out.

                                      Postcard fonts are boring. The cards are engaging and high quality but the font for the message on the card is bland, and does not engage the reader. Choose a friendlier font, put some bold lettering to catch the eye, make it feel like we do look forward to speaking with them.

                                      • Optional TX Plans: ie: Crowns vs bridge vs partials

                                        When treatment planning these items it puts all treatment on the unsceduled lists creating work that is optional to the patient vs decay which is a priority.

                                        • Simple Select feature in the family file

                                          It would be nice to be able to choose whether we use the new patient select screen or to use the older version of the "Simple Select" when clicking the 'more info' button. This option is currently available in the chart but it would be nice to have in the family file also.
