Helping You Do More with Your Dentrix System

Updated 6/26/2019

Did you know Dentrix allows you to sign consent forms electronically and keep track of signed consent forms by attaching them to treatment plan cases? This is another step toward becoming paperless because you won’t have to scan a signed document form into the Document Center.

To sign and attach a consent form to a treatment plan case:

  1. From the Treatment Planner, select a treatment case for a patient.
  2. Click the Supporting Information button in the Navigation panel.
  3. In the Informed Consent group box, expand the Select Consent Form drop-down list, select the desired form, and click the Add icon.
  4. Once the patient has read over the form, have them sign in the Patient/Representative signature box using the computer’s mouse or an electronic signature device. Then verify that the Relationship to patient information is correct.
  5. Have a representative from your practice sign the Practice signature box and select their name from the Name search field.
  6. Click Print to give a printed copy to the patient.
  7. Click Save to save the form.
  8. Click Close to return to the Supporting information section of the Navigation panel and the form is added to the Informed Consent group box along with the date it was signed and by whom.

When a treatment case has a signed consent form attached to it, an icon appears on the left side of the case to indicate that a signed consent form is attached.
