Hi:

Is there a link to a patch for JUST the 2019 ADA claim form?  I tried to print a 2019 form after running the utility and it looks like this:  claim.jpg

Re: CS SoftDent: 2020 CDT Codes / 2019 ADA Form Installation Guide

Not only is there an issue with the 2019 form, the instructions are mislabled as to which form to use.  My instructions say use form #200.  It's actually form #210.

Re: CS SoftDent: 2020 CDT Codes / 2019 ADA Form Installation Guide

Please add the correct link when the utility is fixed.  When I click on the link, it is for WIN OMS CDT update, not Softdent.  Or when the error was discovered, was the link taken off?

Yes, the SoftDent section now says "Available Soon". That will be updated when the new one is available.
Sorry for the hassle!
