This 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. Note: For information about using the new features in Easy Dental 11.2, refer to “Using the New Features and Enhancements” in this section of the Release Guide or “What’s New in Easy Dental 11.2?” in the Easy Dental Help. New Features Easy Dental 11.2 includes the following new features and enhancements: • 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 mange 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.

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. 2 Easy Dental 11.2 Easy Dental 11 Release Guide • Florida prescription form option – Complies with House Bill 7095, which requires health care 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.” Installing Easy Dental 11.2 If you have installed Easy Dental 11 and have an active Customer Service Plan, the Easy Dental 11.2 downloads automatically over the Internet through the Easy Dental Update Manager.
