Enhancement Requests

Do you have an idea for a new feature in Dentrix?

Welcome to MyVoice, the feedback site where you can enter, vote on, and view the status of requests from customers like you, to improve and enhance the Dentrix software.

We want to hear from you!

You may search for an idea using the field below, or enter your own idea if nobody else has made the same suggestion. To vote on an idea, simply click the “vote” button that is shown beneath the vote tally for each suggestion.

If you submit your own idea, please try to explain why this feature would help your office, so that other users (and our development team) can better understand why the feature is important to you.

If your idea is related to a legal requirement such as a new prescription or claim form (or changes to an existing form), please be sure to provide a link to a website that provides documentation regarding the changes, or attach the documentation to the idea directly (please do not attach any documents, screen shots, or other files that contain patient-specific, HIPAA-protected information).

We’re listening to the voice of our customers, so we can make the Dentrix software even better!

How can we improve Dentrix?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. tooth numbers on statements

    I have many patients wanting tooth number information on their statements. If there are multiple one surface fillings paitents dont know if they are being billed twice. I then have to print out ledgers for them.

    Thank you for the feedback, it is much appreciated.

  2. Medication and x-ray tracking

    Medications change and x-rays need to be tracked easily to see when the last complete series/panoramic/bitewing series was completed. Could x-rays completed also go directle to the more info button? Medications would also be handy to access quickly with a way to record the changes and dates that go with it.

  4. New patients appointment

    It would be really nice to be able to search new patient appointments. When a new patient calls to cancel an appointment or check on an appointment I have to search day by day. It would be really great if there was a search option and a way to track the new patients who have broken appointments as well to reduce multiple no shows

  5. Document Center - "Expand All" as default display

    When we open the document center, I think all documents under that particular patient should be automatically open without having to click the +icon under the patient image. There are two additional steps to access a particular document. With the way the document center is designed and having plenty of space, there is no reason for a tree and all documents should be displayed when the document center opens with the categories and subcategories for easy access with NO ADDITIONAL CLICKS.

  6. wireless signature pads

    Would like to have the option to use Wireless Signatur Pad with Dentrix. Currently limited to the ePad which is USB. I have emailed information with the Software Developer Kit for a nice wireless pad I have done some testing with (per Dentrix technician's suggestion). Would like to know that this is actually going into the next release. Thanks!

  8. customize the case status "traffic light" to say/mean what we want

    Be able to customize the case status "traffic light" to statuses that are meaningful to our office. For example, we may want the green light to mean case to be scheduled next.

  9. Link Documents to Chart entries or teeth

    So that you can directly go to a document from the Chart by tooth or procedure. By multiple teeth or multiple procedures would even be better.

  11. Have an option to clear all bleeding points on a new perio chart.

    Right now all previous data is on a new perio chart. You can type over numbers, but have to delete bleeding points one at a time. It would be great if there was a feature that allowed you to clear all bleeding at once. This would save a lot of time.

  12. patient search - don't delete text already typed in!

    does anyone else find it extremely annoying when you do a patient search and realize you have search by "first name" selected instead of search by "last name"...and upon changing the search type the text you have already entered into the search box mysteriously disappears and you have to reenter it??

  13. Printing Statements from Ledger - Set Balance Forward Date

    It would be nice to be able to set the balance forward date on an individual statement before printing from the ledger. Now we have to go through billing statements just to do that. It seems so un-necessary, since we can already set the date for a walkout statement why not for a billing statement?

  18. Signature Line for Time Sheet Printout

    When we have our employees print their pay period time clock report I would like to have a customizable area in the report. I would like to add on the printed report " I have read and verified that the hours shown above are correct and true. Signed _________________." A labor attorney has recommended that all time sheets are appropriately signed with acknowledgment that the employee has verified their hours.

  19. Printing day sheets by inactive vs. active providers.

    Since we're allowed to activate and inactivate providers, it would be nice to have the option of printing day sheets with only active providers selected.
