Helping You Do More with Your Dentrix System

You can save time each day and reduce mouse clicks when charting treatment by using the Auto-State button in the Patient Chart.

The Auto-State button makes it easy to chart procedures with the same treatment status repeatedly.

In the Dentrix Patient Chart, the Auto-State button looks like a light switch and toggles the Auto-State function on and off.

Before you begin charting treatment, make sure the Auto-State button is on. You’ll know it’s on when the background of the button has a light blue background with a black outline.

Once the button is on, select the status for the kind of work (Existing Other, Existing, Treatment Plan, or Completed) you will be charting. Once you’ve done that, each procedure that you post will be charted with the selected status until you either turn off the Auto-State button or until you select a different status.

No more selecting a tooth, then selecting a procedure, then selecting a status button, selecting another tooth, selecting a procedure, and selecting the same status button again—over and over again.
