Check for patient duplicates before adding new patient Merged

When you fill out the “Enter New Patient Information” fields and press “OK”, it would be nice for Dentrix to check the fields with existing patient information in the database. If it finds a duplicate, or even 75-80% similar, it will ASK if we are sure we want to create that new patient, just in case the new patient is an existing patient’s son that has the same name and address. This will prevent adding any duplicate patients and would make life A LOT easier. Thank you!
