overview section includes important notes regarding the release, followed by a brief description of the new
features and enhancements available in Easy Dental 11.2.

and Enhancements” in this section of the Release Guide or “What’s New in Easy Dental 11.2?” in the Easy

•
Windows 8 – Easy Dental is now fully compatible with the Windows 8 Professional and Enterprise
operating systems.
•
Redesigned toolbar buttons – The Easy Dental toolbar buttons have been redesigned to make them
more intuitive and to update the look of the user interface (UI).
•
Arch Treatment Area – When you post procedure codes that apply to an entire arch, the Enter
Procedure(s) and Edit or Delete Procedure dialog boxes now include an option for you to specify which
arch (upper ot lower) to apply the procedure to. From the Procedure Code Editor dialog box, you can
now set an arch treatment area flag.
•
Area of Oral Cavity Codes – Previous versions of Easy Dental included quadrant area codes but not arch
treatment area codes. Arch treatment area codes now print on insurance claims and pre-estimates.
•
New Claim Form – Easy Dental 11.2 now includes the ADA 2012 Claim Form. In Easy Dental, this
claim format is called ED2012. The following boxes have chaged: box 4 consists of two checkboxes rather
than Yes/No; box 19 now reads “Reserved for Future Use;” boxes 29a and 29b have been added; box 33
no longer includes space for primary teeth, and primary teeth no longer print on the claim form; box
34 displays the diagnostic code list qualifier and prints B if the diagnostic codes are ICD-9 and AB if
the diagnostic codes are ICD-10; box 34a lists diagnostic codes attached to procedures (four per claim
maximum); box 38 is no longer a checkbox, but instead enters a two-digit number based on the Place of
Service selected.
•
eDex – Easy Dental now includes a contact manager called eDex that lets you manage and quickly search
for Easy Dental contacts, such as patients, providers, staff, labs, insurance carriers, and contacts that are
not currently stored in the Easy Dental database. You can search by first or last name, address, email
address, or phone number. You can also add custom notes or append notes to a patient note.
•
Installation process – The installation program now automatically detects Easy Dental servers on the
same network. This feature simplifies the installation process. Once an Easy Dental 11.2 server is detected
and selected, the workstation installation detects the server automatically and installs the workstation
software automatically.
•
Easy Dental Update Manager – If you are on an active customer service plan, you can receive updates
automatically through the Easy Dental Update Manager without interupting your workday. To facilitate
the Update Manager, the EZDental folder on the Easy Dental server is now shared automatically.
•
Indiana prescription form option – Complies with Indiana Code 16-42-19-5, which requires certain
security features for prescriptins written for controlled substances.
Easy Dental 11 Release Guide

practioners to use counterfeit-proof prescription pads when prescribing controlled substances.
•
Insurance claims – Added an option to the Dental Insurance Plan Information dialog box to always
print the provider’s name in Box 53 of insurance claims for those insurance carriers that require the
provider’s name instead of printing “Signature on File.”

one computer on your network, you can install it easily on any other computer on your network when you
