Helping You Do More with Your Dentrix System

Updated 10/3/2019

The Dentrix Document Center is an excellent tool you should use to eliminate paper files in your office. One of the best uses of the Document Center is to store images. Images can include digital X-rays, scans of driver’s licenses or insurance cards, screen captures from oral imaging devices, and patient pictures you take with your office camera.

Once stored within the Document Center, you can use a range of tools to modify the documents. Please note that only image files (.jpg for example) can be modified. Text files, such as PDFs, cannot be changed.

A group of images within one filename is still referred to as a document, and can be assigned to multiple sources just like another document in the Document Center. Individual images within the group are referred to as “pages”.

  1. With a patient selected in the Document Center, select an image document from the patient’s document tree. The selected document appears in the Document Preview Pane.
  2. From the Document Center toolbar, click the Modify Document button. A row of buttons you can use to modify the document appears. For additional information on each of these buttons, see the various topics listed in the Learn More section below.
  3. Modify the document as needed.
  4. When you attempt to click on another document or close the Document Center, you are prompted to save your changes. Click Yes to save the current document before moving to another document.
