  2. Create tx plans by dragging w/option for move or copy

    I'd like to see a pane for each tx plan option in addition to the pane with all proposed tx. Then you could drag tx into each pane with an option to move or copy.

  4. simplified charting

    Create a charting view showing surfaces of teeth and allow type of restoration to be chosen once (ie: amalgam or resin) and then all individual surfaces in whole mouth with this material to be selected prior to clicking the applicable procedure status icon (tx plan, existing, etc), eliminating the need to individually chart each tooth when multiple surfaces have the same type of restoration.

  7. Entire view of the appt. length field

    We need to see the entire view of the appt. length field inside the appt box to properly block provider time/asst. time. We have long appts for sedation patients and can't always block the providers correct time.

  8. Dental Insurance Transaction Analysis Report Bugs

    The Dental Insurance Transaction Analysis Report has had major bugs since version G3 and has not been fixed. When selecting certain employer plans, say under Delta Dental, the report does not provide the selected employer plans and appears to randomly select various Delta Dental plans that dilutes the info and provides no reliability of the report. Apparently the report generator does not use the same list file that appears in the selection window. Also the report generated on-screen oft times does not correspond to total page numbers printed, missing the last page with the Grand Total information. This is one…

  10. Chronological view and print of everything

    Sometimes you need to look at a chart as if you had no computer at all. This chronological view should have everything by date including lab cases, doc center docs, rx's, clin notes, journal, chart entries, etc. It would be a one stop shop to view everything in order form day one.

  11. Reminder to make next appointment from treatment plan

    When scheduling from treatment plan, it would be helpful to have a reminder of the patients next appointment in the treatment sequence to be scheduled. This needs to happen when scheduling, not when completed like continuing care set up.

  13. Add a quantity feature for periapicals

    I would like to be able to specify quantity for intraoral periapicals. Instead of entering the procedure 7 times, could there be one line that shows quantity and pricing for 7 periapicals. It would make for less pages for some insurance claims and some insurances and clearing houses limit the number of claim lines.

  14. Cut down on how much "Clicking" we do.

    Signing Pat. Charts: It take 5 clicks to just to sign my name to a chart. The first window should be a list of all staff ready to be clicked on.

  17. Progress notes: Column between Status and Amount is WASTED SPACE.

    Please allow typing in that column. I would much rather prefer to write my notes about the tooth there. You can type in your diagnosis, pathologies, Diagnodent Numbers, alternative treatment options, watches, ANYTHING. It is a lot easier to read across the row quickly than to click and open a Note box. If you wanted to hide any notes, just right click it and hide it (turn it into that music note). It seems like a quick fix because it's just an Excel Spreadsheet function.

  20. After ext tooth, double ext lines should change color instead of disappearing

    This way, you know by looking at the clinical charting if you extracted the tooth or if it was already missing. This is helpful to quickly determine if a "missing tooth clause" for insurance is applicable.
