I am a Pediatric Dentist using the SoftDent 16.2.3. We are starting to go chartless and have noticed the need for some additional "condition" buttons:

Good morning Dr. Vaidyanathan,
Thank you for participating in the Community! Adding customizable conditions buttons is one of several improvements we're hoping to make to the clinical chart. The goal will be to provide the same functionality to conditions as we have for procedures; basically allowing the practice to create buttons for the conditions that make the most sense for them.
I agree with the need for these conditions and would also love to see an improvement as far as primary tooth restorations. When treatment planning on a primary tooth, the computer should be programmed to use the primary amalgam or primary composite codes or the button should have a drop down to give the assistant/doctor the option of primary or permanent codes. I know we can customize buttons but there isn't an icon that is appropriate and searching for the code in the ADA list is time consuming for them. Usually they treatment plan using the amalgam and resin buttons and ask me to go back and change the codes. There is room for improvement there!
