In Dentrix Ascend, you can add third parties to your organisation's database.
Tip: You can also add a third party when you are attaching a third party to a patient.
How to get there
On the Home menu, under Third-Parties, click (or tap) Third-Parties.
The Third-Parties page opens.
To add a third party
On the Third-Parties page, click (or tap) Add Third-Party.
The options for adding a new third party become available.
In the Third-Party box, enter the name of the third party. The name must start with a number or letter, not a special character.
Set up the other options as needed:
Phone number - The third party's main contact phone number and extension (if applicable).
Fax number - A fax number for the third party.
Website - The third party's website address. Do not include "http://" or "https://" at the beginning of the website address.
You cannot change the Third-Party name after you click (or tap) Save.
You must save the third party's information to make the Available Procedures button available, so you can specify which procedures are available for posting to the records of patients who are covered by this third party (when the "Third-Party procedures" procedure filter is selected during posting).
Click (or tap) Save.
For the purposes of working with this third party in Dentrix Ascend, you must attach a plan to the third party. The plan can have the same name as the third party.
Important: Each time you add a third party to your organisation's database, for each provider that is contracted with that third party, you must go to the Contracted With section of that provider's user account and select the check box next to the third party's name.
