Scheduled Downtime for Service Upgrade

Dear PracticeDent users,

Our services will be interrupted for about 1 hour on Sunday night (30 October), starting at 22:00 CET.

This is due to a scheduled database upgrade, which will ensure a more responsive service.

Additionally, we will be adding a couple of new features:

  1. Users with administrative permissions will be able to delete payments from the Cashbook.

  2. We have added a new button in Recalls and Communication – “Add Entire List.” This button will make it easier to add entire collections of recipients.

  3. When creating a new appointment in Calendar or Reception, PracticeDent now checks whether the Patient has outstanding Recall notifications. If so, it will allow you to change the status of the Recall notification to Confirmed.

We hope that these improvements will make PracticeDent even better for you!

Introducing – the Communication Center

One of the big reasons cloud software is simply better than regular old installable programs is the fact that updates and upgrades to the system happen seamlessly and require no effort on the user’s part. And since one of our main goals is to implement customer feedback and to keep improving PracticeDent, we are happy to present

The Communication Center

This is the first implementation of a complete messaging system within the PracticeDent platform. Up until now, you could simply exchange quick messages with your colleagues via the internal messaging system (the chat), or send texts (SMS) to your patients from specific places within the app.

We have now introduced a more thorough system, which lets you view all incoming* and outgoing messages in one place – including e-mail, SMS (and soon – documents, prepared for snail mail). This can be found under the Communication item in the main menu, which has replaced the previous Recycle Bin item (Recycle Bin can now be accessed via a trashcan icon in the right section of the main menu).
