    Have a icon for medical hx so that it can automatically be updated each time pt chart is opened and saved so that it does not have to be scanned in at each appt

  2. Add vendor non-patient type to database

    Rather than switching out of dentrix to find a list of vendors, it would be most helpful to have an additional "vendor non-patient" type we can search in the family file. Many of our vendors become patients, and this would save time and increase productivity.

  3. Dentrix Mobile - views

    My DDS's would like to be able to view COLUMNS not just providers. Also the Perfect scheduling blocks don't show... Since there's not a way to BLOCK OUT an alotted time (we've made a fake pt! bad I know) .. but our antiquated other program would let us .. we need to see these when looking on the schedule. ESP if viewing a column via Dentrix Mobile.

  4. Want dentrix to calculate used medical benefits based upon date of service

    If I submit a claim for a procedure that was done the previous year, dentrix will apply the insurance payment against the current year benefit instead the year when the service was done. The workaround is to backdate the creation date of the claim to last year, but this is counterintuitive.

  7. Add the ability to add more patients to a family file

    Add the ability to add more patients to a family file, We do alot of charity work through our school district and would like to be able to keep track of all children with the school/organization they belong with. Not to mention quite a few foster families and/or homeless families that all share the same address. Splitting them up into several different accounts is not only a pain but unorganized.

    When you enter your password, you shouldn't have to reenter your password on any menu for the next 2 min.

  9. Productivity Pack 7 please fix

    Since upgrading we have noticed my screen flashing a lot more when it refreshes, very hard on the eyes. And we can no longer open a single day on the schedule just by simply clicking the practice shcedule and click "open office".

  10. Schedule Summary Report

    For the total scheduled time, on the schedule summary report, Please use the provider time, not the chair time. Ex. If a hygienist works with an assistant out of 2 operatories, she is scheduled for 30 minutes out of an hour appointment. But the report counts the full 60 minutes.

  12. All data entry menus should look the same.

    All the different data entry windows should look the same and behave the same. Currently there are a bunch of different menu formats, make them all rehave the same.

  15. Setting Complete

    When setting a procedure complete from anywhere in the Chart (treatment planner, progress notes) It should automatically default to the provider selected at the top of the Chart. Sometimes Hyg. treatment plans work and doesn't know which Dr. the pt. will be seen with. So instead of needing to double check it, when you change the provider at the top it should default all work to that provider no matter who it is treatment planned under.

  16. RCT indication on perio chart

    Our hygienist would really like to have a way to view root canal treated teeth on the perio chart, the same way you can view it in the patient chart. Specifically, she would like for that view option to appear on the print out.

  19. Treatment Planned cases-Keep history of!

    Once a treatment planned case & pretreatment estimate have been accepted by insurance, there is no history of it when the procedures are completed. There NEEDS to be history and case numbers. The treatment that was planned & accepted by insurance, and itemized plan payment towards that treatment needs to have history!!! Ex: We received Pre-tx estimate from ins. Treatment was completed (moved from tx plan to ledger) and history on itemized tx plan is no longer there. We have a total Auth amount and received date, but the treatment details are no longer there. We need to call the…

  20. statement balance forward date

    It would be helpful to have the 'balance forward' date retained when you create statements, rather than having to go back and look up your last statement run date.
