Dentrix G7 is better suited for small private dental offices that are not doing federal FQHC data reporting every year. G7 doesn't allow for the full capturing of all FQHC data that is needed as the enterprise edition does. Dentrix G7 also is not suited well for mutliple site dental offices as that is not technically supported. There is a work around requiring a Windows terminal server to setup Dentrix as a server application. Any businesses that have multiple dental offices are better suited for the Dentrix Enterprise edition which does allow for this and hosted Dentrix.

To date, TotalMD EHR is being used in many specialties, including chiropractic, general surgery, home healthcare, mental health, internal medicine, family practice, plastic surgery, OB/GYN and alternative medicine. Because the system is available as both server-based (in-house system) or cloud-based, each practice may choose which option may better suit the way they care for patients, based on portability needs.

Pros
Henry Schein
  • Easy to look up, edit, delete, break and make appointments. This is great when you're on the phone with someone and are able to quickly locate them in the system and see what appointments they have.
  • Easily make changes to providers information, colors or schedules. This is nice because we tend to have fill in hygienists and we can change their colors so it will not indicate the same colors as are our normal staff.
  • Easily print reports and deposits from the office manager. This helps us keep track of new patients, aging reports, unscheduled appointments, unscheduled treatment, continuing care appointments and so much more.

  • Since TotalMD EHR is a completely integrated system with its TotalMD Practice Management and Patient Billing counterpart, the chance of data entry error across systems is minimized. Provider assessments translate directly to billing data, thus decreasing claim rejections, dramatically.
  • Templates are quickly and easily customized by the provider, for any and all specialties, based on the way the provider works as opposed to the way programmers decide.
  • Powerful tracking system allows providers to follow lab orders, medications, referral information and more, which enhances the ability to provide better care.

Cons
Henry Schein
  • Outdated--it's not cloud based.
  • Does not pull reports we need for patients like demographics in flow charts.
  • Is not an open API.

  • Although third-party applications are available for smartphone access to certain information, we are hoping to see such applications developed directly by TotalMD, to continue with their all-in-one approach, which minimizes any chance of data error.
  • Third-party biometric devices (fingerprint, retinal scan, etc.) can be utilized with the HL7 import capabilities of TotalMD. However, we would like to see such scanning devices created specifically for TotalMD. By doing so, the installation, configuration and support would be handled by one company, rather than a third party.

Support Rating

We have used Dentrix support and they seem to be helpful. We are able to schedule meetings as needed within a short time frame, and are usually able to resolve any issues we may have within 1 or 2 calls. There doesn't seem to be as strong of a user community around Dentrix as there is with Epic.

I have previously used Eaglesoft and Easy Dental. I have found Dentrix to be very comparable to Eaglesoft, and myself and my team feel that it is relatively essay to use and seems to have a low learning curve for new members added to the team, at least in my experience.

[We assessed] bringing on another product to our lineup (previously we were top national resellers of Medisoft and AltaPoint). However, TotalMD quickly became our flagship product, as it has proven to have the lowest maintenance/support requirements, the easiest to learn for both practitioners as well as support personnel and is the most affordable (most bang-for-the-buck) for our clients. Supporting over a thousand clients throughout the US, Canada, Guam and Puerto Rico for the past 23 years, we always hold our clients' best interests in mind.

  • Since TotalMD is one of the few EHR systems on the market today, that does not have a required annual (and usually very pricey) support agreement, its fast user implementation time requirement and the many error cross-checking systems, the ROI for most practices, can be seen in a few months.
  • Data conversion from several software systems (Medisoft, AltaPoint, Lytec and Visionary) are typically included at no cost, saving many practices thousands of dollars when they switch from a lesser product. The technical team at TotalMD can convert data from most any other product at very reasonable rates.
