Keeping Up with Continuing Care

Updated 9/25/2019

By looking at the Continuing Care block in the Dentrix Family File, you can tell where a patient stands with their continuing care plan. An empty block indicates that no continuing care has been set, while a block containing red dates and descriptions (see image above) means the patient is overdue for treatment. When a patient calls or comes into your office, check the Family File to see their continuing care status, and encourage them to get back on schedule with their treatment if needed.

For more information about setting up patients on a continuing care plan, see the Customizing Recall For Your Patient in Dentrix article in the Dentrix magazine online archive.

If used consistantly it is also a great tool to keep track of when patients are due for their FMX and/or Pano's that seem to fall through the cracks since most are covered by insurance every 3-5 years.
