Option for Gender X instead of exclusively Male or Female in the chart?

Is there an option for a patient to be Gender X instead of exclusively Male or Female in the chart?

Gender X encompasses not being exclusively male or female, including, but not limited to, intersex, agender, amalgagender, androgynous, bigender, demigender, female-to-male, genderfluid, genderqueer, male-to-female, neutrois, nonbinary, pangender, third sex, transgender, transsexual, Two Spirit, and unspecified

For letters instead of converting male/female to he/she gender x would convert to they/them

For prefix we will need Mx which is also considered gender neutral. 

These options should apply to both patients and responsible parties

Some states are in the process of adding gender x to legal identification cards and paperwork. It would be appropriate for dental records to match

Thank you

Savannah, thanks so much for this information. Unfortunately, there is currently not an option for Gender X in a patient's chart or letters.  I will forward this information on to the appropriate team for consideration in a future update of the software. Tagging uriyahrobinson , OrthoTrac PLM.
