Dentrix makes it easy for you to manage your patients’ continuing care and to schedule patients for routine and follow-up treatment. In Dentrix, you can set up continuing care types that tell you how often patients should be seen for certain procedures, such as prophys or X-rays. When you schedule appointments for the procedures attached to those continuing care types, Dentrix automatically adds those patients to the continuing care schedule.
By default, Dentrix comes with several preset types of continuing care. If you see patients on a regular, scheduled basis for procedures that are not included in the defaults—orthodontic work or nutrition/tobacco counseling, for instance—you can create your own continuing care types for those procedures. You can also modify the default types by adding procedures or changing their time intervals.
