More Information Button

Updated 9/27/2019

One of the often overlooked, but highly useful, buttons in Dentrix is the More Information button.

This button is available in all patient-specific modules, as well as from the Lab Case Manager, Treatment Manager, and Collections Manager.

The More Information dialog box displays additional patient information, such as patient contact information, family members, appointment history, continuing care due dates, and balance information. You can also access the patient's Ledger, and add an Office Journal entry from within this dialog box. When you click on any of the patient's family members, you can see the same information for that family member and click Select Family Member to select that person in the module.

For more information about how to use this dialog box, see the Viewing More Patient Information topic in the Dentrix Help.
