We want to hear from you!

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.

  3. Treatment Manager to Filter by Procedure Provider or custom status

    Allow Treatement Manager to Filter by Procedure Provider/Flag, NOT Patient Provider. This would allow us to flag certain Treatment as "Optional", or i.e. "Waiting until Jan 2012", or whatever other Definitions we want to flag or assign by.. This way we can be more efficient; we won't constantly be going into Pt's TX that aren't good canidates to be called on at that time.

    This would require a flag drop down in the prodeure itself; Ideally with user selected defintions assigned through possibly the office manager... Or could select a "dummy" provider on the procedure itself and then in the…

  6. Connect all the appts to a lab case and not have to do it manually.

    When you set complete a crown it should create the lab case and connect it to the seat appt, then once it is seated it should delete from the case manager automatically.

  7. Refiling insurance claims

    It would be nice to have the ability to refile a entire day or batch of insurance claims that were already created. I have had several occations where my electronic filing service has lost connection and I had to go into individual accounts to batch again then highlight in office manager and re-send. If you could re-batch by procedure day this would save time-I had to do a weeks worth of claims one by one!

  8. Posting Elective Treatment

    In the patient chart, I would like to have an option to post treatment that is elective like we do existing, existing other, etc. Something that will show up in a different color on the tooth chart and in progress notes with the toggle on/off option like the others have.

  9. When Appointment is set complete, pop-up window to add Clinical Note

    When you set complete a patient get a pop up window asking to add a clinical note for that patient. That way everyone gets documented and posted.

  10. Have Perio Chart Automaticly Load

    It would be nice if the most current perio chart would automaticly open along with the patient chart. Instead of having to wait for the patient chart to load and then have to wait again for the perio chart to load.

  11. Multiple user support

    We have multiple users of Dentrix. All of our users also have their own documents and e-mail (Outlook) all of this is tied to their windows login. We need to be able to have each user logon to ANY PC and get to Dentrix. Ex: Our receptionist is out of the office. Someone needs to sit at the reception desk and access Dentrix but also access their own documents and e-mail. Right now they are falling behind on their work because they can't get to their documents and e-mail while sitting at the reception desk instead of their own.

  13. Referred By Section

    I am a specialist. I add hundreds of GP’s names to Dentrix in the referred by section. There should be an easy way to access the Referring GP’s name, details, and particularly their office telephone numbers so that when girls need to call, they have a quick reference in Dentrix handy.

    Thanks

  17. Fast checkout: More options and available from more modules

    Make completing a patient visit more automated. Have more options for Fast Checkout and have it available from the Chart and Appointment Book (Set Appointment Complete), Treatment Planner and Family File; and still available from the Ledger. Each module should have its own Fast Checkout options, or the options should be shared among all modules per workstation, or the entire practice. Options could be : when an appointment is set complete, launch the Ledger for the patient automatically; from the Chart set all scheduled procedures complete; set appointments complete from the Chart; update continuing care from any module; set the…

  18. Select Provider, Billing Type, etc. for multiple, not range

    For any place, particularly reports, where a range of providers can be selected, make
    it possible to select several/multiple non-consecutive providers from a list. Should also be done for seleting procedure codes, payment types, billing types, etc.

  19. Automatically copy Guarantor's Cell Phone (Mobile) and Email to dependent's Family Files

    When adding a new family member to the system, would like Dentrix to automatically copy the Head of Household's cell # and e-mail address to all dependent family members' Family Files. Especially in the case of children, there is usually one parent who acts as the primary contact, and would like the phone number and email address copied to the child's Family File to save time with data entry.
