What got you interested in Dentrix Mastery Tracks?
My regional director completed the Mastery Tracks Program and encouraged me to look into it. After talking with her and attending the Dentrix Convention in Florida, it definitely piqued my interest.
How has participating in Mastery Tracks helped you use Dentrix?
I feel more confident in my day–to–day duties. As you are working through the program, you are learning something new daily. I now know more about Dentrix than before, and I am able to pass this information along to other managers and to my team members.

What is your favorite Dentrix tip or trick?
I love the Collection Manager. There is nothing like being able to see your past-due accounts all in one place and viewing them by name, insurance estimate or patient balance. Also, the fact that you can view any section of the patient's account such as the ledger, journal or guarantor notes from there is priceless.
