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 ***, 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
