Dentrix Ideas

Add a gender option

There needs to be more options other than "male" and "female." we have a lot of patients that don't identify as either and are sensitive to using certain pro-nouns.

    This feature is now available in G7.7, which is currently releasing in phases over the next few weeks. Below is a brief overview of the added capabilities.

    Updated Gender Field

    • Ability to select ‘Other’ gender in Dentrix

    • Questionnaires, eClaims, and printed claims have a third gender option

    Our office is frustrated there is no option for non-binary in the Dentrix system. its 2022 for CS!! If they're insurance and id card says non-binary and not Male/Female then our records in our system shouldnt make us choose the incorrect gender either.

    This doesn't apply to the medical field. You can't change the male/female anatomy of teeth no matter what your "preference". Sorry, but this downgrade to our dental software isn't necessary...not even for insurance purposes. Is there a way to delete it from our system?

    Can we get an update? I know the newer version is supposed to have more options but I am not sure when that is coming out.

    Do we have an update on this? It has been a year and I'm trying to find out the status for a lecture I'm giving on the topic soon.

    Have there been any updated other than almost 1 year ago for this, We have a few patients that are complaining about this, I can see this becoming something legal in the future if not addressed sooner than later

    Need to have gender at birth, then either gender identity or preferred pronouns etc.

    Hello, this was raised over a year ago at least. Why are we still lacking additional gender options?

    Thank you all for the feedback and suggestions. We plan to start development to add an "other" status shortly. For insurance purposes, the option will need to be a selection and not a free form field. However, there are other areas, such as salutation, preferred name, or title that can be used to specify pronouns or more detail.

    Agreed! Male/Female "sex" is no longer inclusive and "other" isn't good enough either.

    Field needs to be "Gender" and a fill in rather than a drop down.

    I don't remember ever seeing if this printed on any report we generate for our patients.  Maybe insurance needs it?
