Future Appointment Auto Attaching Continuing Care Procedures

Scheduling future hygiene continuing care visits would be faster and more efficient if the software would auto attach the continuing care procedure that is due at that visit.  Continuing care in the family file allows you to set the intervals for maintenance procedures (prophy and perio maintenance), bitewing and full mouth xrays, periodontal charting, doctor exams and any other recurring procedures.  It only remembers and auto attaches prophy and/or perio maintenance in the new appointment info and then the appointment book at the given interval; 3, 4, 6 months etc.  For example, if bitewings, perio charting and periodic doctor exams are due at the next hygiene visit, it would save time if those procedures were auto attached for that next visit.  Currently I have to manually input the additional procedures that are due.  Other dental software I work with remembers these parameters and auto attaches when due for continuing care appointments . This would save time and increases efficiency.  Please consider this in a near future software update.  I am a hygienist and schedule future continuing care visits for my patients at the end of the procedure.  This would save me or the front office a lot of time.
