Dentrix Ideas

search for a procedure by name or code

When searching for a procedure it would be easier to be able to search by name not always procedure code.

    I run into this scenario weekly, I know the code/description, but I don't know in which category it resides. It is a time-waster that should be easily solved with a simple procedure code/description query.

    yes being able to initiate a search with name (a first letter even) would be awesome

    Agreed - just one of those 'little things' that add up -

    I agree. If there was just a search bar at the top where you can type in keywords, it would be a lot faster to enter in procedures.

    this is something even QSI does (a DOS program)...Dentrix should be WAY up to speed on that!

    I've asked for a CDT search button for 17 years from Dentrix. Glad to see someone else is looking for the same thing! Maybe this time???? PLEASE?????

    This is absurd that dentrix doesnt already have this option. I believe all other softwares offer a quick search...even my dental school software had it!

    THIS IS SO IMPORTANT AS IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO FIND WHERE A PROCEDURE IS LOCATED SOMETIMES!!!!!! PLEASE FIX THIS

    there needs to be a place where you type in a Key word and all the codes with that word pop up. it takes a lot of time to search each category for the correct code.

    In the Dentrix system it asks us what we want our short cut to be... it would be GREAT if we could look up the code by our shortcut instead of the ADA code. EX: instead of D2392 we would type in 2surf and it would populate the correct code. This is especially helpful to the front office.

    Make a pop up search bar that you can type in the type of procedure that you are doing and dentrix will give you a list of codes that could go with that certain procedure!!! This would be amazing!

    This feature is being touted by the ADA as an app that can be downloaded on a smartphone with the purchase of the CDT 2016 version, however, putting on a smartphone is great, it would be better if it was in the software as we use this in our digital ops and it would be great to have as a feature in Dentrix for the Doctor so he doesn't have to stop and go look at the CDT codebook

    We have been wanting a search button for the CDT codes to be implemented so one doesnt have to click down and search the list, rather put in keywords to pull up options to choose from. This is useful should a procedure be changed chairside, such as an additional surface so the code has to change or if a procedure is being done and the Dr doesn't know the code but would rather search that instant in Dentrix vs reference the CDT paper guidebook. Time saver Dr Bobbitt would love to see implemented in the chart, trmt plan and ledger modules.

    When you go to add a new procedure code to a patient's treatment plan, it would be very helpful to have a search bar at the top where you can add the description (example: "crown") and all the procedure codes with the word "crown" will populate.
