PolicyPak for Henry Schein Practice Solutions Dentrix

You have a busy dental practice with patients all day who are relying on you.  For that reason, you rely on a mission critical application like Dentrix to keep everything in your business office flowing effortlessly, that is, until this application doesn’t run as expected for your users.

You depend on Dentrix to manage your patients and your office, which is why you need PolicyPak to manage Dentrix configuration settings.  This way you can make sure that your users get the same experience every time they utilize this application.

And that’s why you need to lock down the configuration settings for such a frequently accessed application, so that users don’t call the helpdesk when this application suddenly doesn’t function as expected.

At PolicyPak, we enforce and lock down the optimum settings values that you, the administrator, want them to have.  PolicyPak sets and enforces expectations for your users’ applications, so that they get the same experience, every time they launch it.

Keep your Dentrix configuration settings delivered, enforced and automatically remediated with PolicyPak.  Check out this video to see how it’s done:

Automatically Check for Updates

Our PolicyPak software snaps-in to the Group Policy Editor and gives you the same user interface as Dentrix.  Like many of the applications that PolicyPak supports, you don’t want your users to determine if automatic updates should occur for this application so take that right away from them by ensuring that “Automatically Check for Updates” is always unchecked.  Then to make sure that your users can never alter this setting, simply right click on the setting itself and select “Disable corresponding control in target application.”

Deliver settings

Notice that the user gets your delivered setting and cannot access the setting as well.

Manage billing transactions

Dentrix manages all of your electronic and online billing transactions, unless of course the settings aren’t correct so use PolicyPak to configure the “Method” and Server settings.  While you’re at it, you can choose to disable these settings as well.

ACL Lockdown

But you can do more than just deliver and disable settings with PolicyPak.  You can use PolicyPak’s signature “ACL Lockdown” feature as well which locks down application settings within the registry and setting files to ensure that even registry savvy users can’t modify your delivered settings.  Here we will make sure that “Automatically Launch Office Journal” is always checked and then we can right click on it and select “Perform ACL Lockdown.”

With PolicyPak, you’re the one in control.

Besides, once you’re using PolicyPak to manage Dentrix, you’ll also get to manage all your other enterprise desktop applications the same way: Flash, Lync, Java, Firefox, and any custom applications you have. They’re 100% included – absolutely free.

It’s all included when you’re a PolicyPak Professional customer.

PolicyPak was designed by Group Policy MVP Jeremy Moskowitz – who “wrote the book” on Group Policy, runs GPanswers.com, and lives and breathes Group Policy and enterprise software deployments and desktop lockdown.

When you’re ready to get serious about managing Dentrix, PolicyPak is ready for you.
