It would be a nice option to have surgeries / dental on the patient info screen along with medications, allergies, etc. The best thing would be to have the ability to enable or disable all of these things from the patient summary screen. In the dev version demo the only way to get to an area to add a surgery or dental issue is either under issues at the top of the screen or when you first create an encounter. I originally posted this with a bug (also posted in the wrong spot).
Brady suggested that I add this to feature requests and I am including an additional thought he had that might help the thought process.
"Currently the groups that show up in the patient summary screen are hard-coded with the script, but it wouldn't take much to instead add a setting in library/lists.inc" Included screen shot in case my description isn't good enough
