Dentrix passwords required for all users
In the first half of 2018, Dentrix will begin requiring passwords for all users with minimum complexity requirements. In anticipation of that release, please prepare today by ensuring your passwords are enabled and that all users have appropriate access to the various areas of Dentrix. You can also start using the new complexity requirements now, which include (1) a minimum of eight characters and (2) at least one uppercase and one lowercase alpha character, at least one numeric character and at least one special character (e.g., #@$*).
