Generating the Patient Report (by Filters)

The Patient Report (by Filters) option in Dentrix makes it easy for you to create custom reports and find specific patient data. When you generate reports using this feature, you can specify which information you want to see on the report, so you don’t have to search through information you don’t need to find the information you want.

You can use the Patient Report (by Filters) to find information you need that can’t be found in the regular Dentrix reports or to create one report that contains pieces of information that are given on several different reports.
