  1. bigger font

    the font seems smaller than before and it is not easy to read patients' names, and I don't see where I can control the size of font.

  4. newsletters

    For Newsletters, would love to have the options to select ONLY ACTIVE patients. Also, to be able to select certain criteria, such as, patients with insurance, for end of year benefits reminders and updates when we become participating with an insurance company. Would also like to be able to save those newsletters for usage in the future. Being a large office it is not easy to try and manually select which patients to send to. And I know other communications get noted in the office journal, would be nice if the newsletter is there as well.

  6. Why does Cigna show frequency for xrays but not exam/prophy?

    Do they not provide the data? Seems odd

  8. Confirmation text

    Please allow the confirmation text to be any where in the custom text reminder ; and not just at the end. (or at least right after the appointment time)
    A lot of pts don't read the entire text message. and as soon as they read their name and appt time, they stop reading.

    Here is an example of our appt reminder:

    "HI John
    you have an appt on Tue June 15 at 9:30 am.
    please give us 2 business day notice if wish to reschedule your appt, to avoid any cancellation fee. Reply 1 to confirm appt.

    Patients don't read…

  9. Create a report showing all patients who have opted out of email correspondence

    The Communications Manager currently has an option to show patients who have opted out of text messages but, there is no similar option to see what patients have opted out of emails. This is currently an issue for our practice as Henry Schein One is transferring the eCentral services over to Demand Force. When I did the onboarding call with Demand Force, I was greatly dismayed to find out that all of the patients who have previously opted out of email, text, and phone calls are not automatically ported over with those settings. I am having to provide Demand Force…

  10. Fill appointement by sending a text group message

    The program needs to be changed to pull appointments from the same list as the unscheduled list and not have any connection to the family file.

  11. Posting payment agreements in "patient ledger" not guarantour

    We have the Dentrix e pay. We were using power pay previously. I have found that when posting a payment agreement amount, the system defaults the payment to the guarantor's ledger instead of the patient who the payment should actually go to. for example the children are charged out for orthodontia. The monthly payment needs to go into that child's ledger but it is inconveniently defaulting to the parents ledger. This is EXTREMELY INCONVENIENT AND TIME CONSUMING BECAUSE WE THEN HAVE TO MOVE THE PAYMENT FROM THE PARENT TO THE CHILD SO THE LEDGERS ARE ACCURATE. ESPECIALLY WHEN THERE IS…

  12. Allow Customers to include their dental reviews in their own sites

    Patient Reviews are easy to include within the dental practice's own website by including the review link in an iframe tag. The problem is that eCentral formats the reviews with a right margin at 224px creating a lot of white space and text wrapping for all but a full desktop display.

    This is a formatting problem on mobile, tablet or when the reviews do not span the entire page are are forced to wrap the review in a narrow column. Solution are: provide a second copy that is user formatable (keep the css tags, dont include hard coded internal css,…

  15. options for text only

    Some patients only want a text. I don't see away to let a wife get a text and the rest of the family get email, or visa versa

  16. Update family file

    I would like a indicator in the Dentrix family file that shows patient accepts or declines TEXT / EMAIL. We often have a mobile and email in the family file but that does NOT mean the patient accepts communication that way. Instead of flipping back to ecentral selections to see if patient accepts either of them a simple indicator in the family file would be a welcomed improvement.

  17. Correspondence Campaigns

    More options in sending Correspondence Campaigns. We previously were using a communication manager outside of Dentrix that allowed us to select each day of the week we wanted to send out a Correspondence Campaign for appointment reminders to allow patient's to confirm. However, with Dentrix's Correspondance Campaigns, it only allows us to select how many days in advanced we want to send a campaign. For example, we prefer to do two day reminders for our patient's appointments. Due to our office being closed Friday-Sunday, we send out our reminder for a Monday appoint on the Wednesday beforehand. That way, if…

  18. Kiosk Problems

    After 1 month of trouble shooting iPad kiosks we have shut it down. We made the questions as simple as possible (literally just name address and phone #) and patients still have problems. Disliked that current patients default to to new patient forms if they do not find themselves on the first try. Patients were hitting the green GO button instead of Next and there were too many clicks to get to the end of the forms. The last Finish button should be eliminated. We also disliked that every time a patient wanted to review their info a new form…

  19. Questionnaires

    Submitted date on website.

    We used to view the new patient forms on our website with the submitted date. I understand this was removed on an update. This was useful for us, so that we can verify information on the form and our doctor could go over the forms in front of the patient without having to log into Dentrix in front of them.

  20. So not send communications to archived patients

    Stop sending all communications to any patient who has an archived status. The reason we turn the patient to an archived status is because they no longer are patients or are deceased.
