Dentrix Ideas

Allow search by patient cell phone number

Please allow us to search pt by cell phone number not only by home number.  Not a lot of patients have home phone numbers these days. Thank you.

    Simple patient selection should (preferably) search all phone number fields. If that's not possible, it should be the Mobile number by default. Most patients don't even have a "home" number anymore.

    Also, the Advanced patient selection should search all phone number fields. It currently searches all of them except "Home".

    I know I have asked for this too previously! Hope Dentrix does this sooner than later!

    Yes this would be wonderful. Most our patients dont even have a home phone number any more. Do you?? :-)

    I 100% agree. Please consider adding this feature. When trying to search for a patient it would be a tremendous help if we could search by cell and not just home. Over half of our patients only have cell phone.

    I completely agree. 90% of my patients do not have home phones so having the option to search by mobile phone would be A HUGE IMPROVEMENT.  Thank you
