    • An automatically generated ticket will be sent to MacPractice Support with a list of all the claims that have been re-opened due to this resolution. This list is available upon request. Simply call MacPractice Support and we will be more than happy to provide the list and answer any questions or address any concerns you may have regarding this issue.

Dental - Restorative Charting

  • Addressed a situation when using the new Deleted Notes filter when archiving incidents that used to contain clinical notes. This issue was preventing deleted clinical notes in archived incidents from appearing in the filter, and was erroneously displaying notes as archived when the incident was then unarchived until a refresh could occur. Both scenarios have been addressed.

Patients - Orders

  • Fixed an issue when changing particular fields in Orders where MacPractice was not detecting a change was made, therefore causing difficulties in saving an Order.

If disabled, the payment will not print on the statement, but will be calculated properly in the Previous Balance summary line.
  • Corrected an issue with the "Print Insurance Estimating Description Line on Account Statements" preference where no matter what the claim amount was, it would always print "A Claim of 0.00 was submitted..." instead.
