Dentrix Ascend is actually designed to be able to keep just a single patient file without having a duplicate for orthodontic work. You can set the orthodontic benefits from the same page as setting other deductibles and benefit maximums. The orthodontic deductibles and maximums are set under the lifetime benefits column.
Users of other practice management systems may be used to having a patient marked as an orthodontic version (such as "O-" before the name). Handling orthodontics on the same patient file is something that Dentrix Ascend is doing very different than Dentrix or other systems. We are happy to have been able to design the system new instead of just converting the processes of Dentrix to a cloud environment.
