Did you know you can customize the tooltip text that appears when you hover over a procedure button in the Chart? Tooltip text in Dentrix Enterprise can be easily customized to match your preferences. For example, if you have new dental assistants who are just learning dental terminology, you can customize the tooltip text associated with procedure D3330 to say “Root Canal” instead of “Endodontic therapy.”

How To

  1. In the Patient Chart, from the File menu, select Setup Procedure Buttons…
Chart Button Template dialog box
  1. Select the Chart Button template (Chart Procedure Button Templates are available in version 8.0.9 and above) you want to modify from the Select Template drop-down list.
  2. Click the procedure button you want to change.
  3. A message will appear informing you that any updates you make will change the custom template for this patient. Click OK to continue.
If you want to update a Chart Button Template, you must do that from the Office Manager

  1. In the Select Tooltip Text group box, select Use Custom Text, and then change the default text in the field to your desired text.
  2. Make any other changes as needed and click OK.
