Will using the Installer instead of manually updating delete our in-office codes we use within SoftDent?
It did not remove ours. I suggest printing a list of all of Your ADA codes. One frustrating token is that the update does change the description of some of our codes. I just go in afterward and correct any that changed, very easy.
Thanks for getting this out so soon! This really eases the utilization prep for new codes.
I clicked the zip drive but don't see how I save it to desktop. All I can do is open it but I don't want to run it until the end of the year. How do I save it??
