  • More conveniently access the Practice Analysis Reports from the Reports menu in the Office Manager.
  • Print due dates on billing statements for patients without having to set up a payment agreement.
  • Choose whether you want to use the simple version of the Select Patient dialog or the more powerful, new Select Patient dialog in the Chart, Treatment Planner, Questionnaires, Perio, and Document Center modules.
  • Click a button to return to the default sort order of the Progress Notes if you have customized the way they are sorted in the Chart.
  • Adjust the margins on the printed Chart progress notes to accommodate for 3-ring binder holes.
