Re: SoftDent: 2021 CDT Code Installation Guide

Have the fixed the issue in which when new codes are imported that SD OVERWRITES ALL office descriptions of that ADA code?     

 

NEW CODES should not overwrite our other ADA code descriptions.

Unfortunately, no this has not been resolved yet. As of now, running the 2021 CDT Update will revert descriptions of default codes back to their original descriptions.

Re: SoftDent: 2021 CDT Code Installation Guide

PLEASE fix this,  Simpy ADD the new codes with a description, Inactivate Deleted ADA codes, leave the rest alone.   This is a horrible waste of users time, it is so very frustrating.  which is why I manually add our ADA codes in each year unless there are a high number of changes.

@tshaw can we get some some developers to look at this, and get a change request made?

@mdunham  After reaching out to development, they informed me that this defect has been added to their list and will be fixed in a future version.
