Helping You Do More with Your Dentrix System

Ever wonder what all those buttons on the side of the Appointment Information dialog box are for? You’ve seen them, but have you ever used them?

The Schd. Next button is a great time-saving button you should work into your routines and start using.

Here’s how it works. When a patient checks out, double-click on today’s appointment in the Appointment Book to bring up the Appointment Information dialog box. Then click the Schd. Next button.

This opens a new appointment for the selected patient. Enter the reason(s) for their next appointment, then click the Pinboard button. This will move the appointment to the Pinboard and from there you can flip through the days in your schedule until you find one that works for the patient. Then simply drag the appointment from the Pinboard to the available time. Done!

Try it out, see what you think, and make it a time-saving habit!
