Setting up operatories  

By default, Dentrix uses the same default settings for operatory hours as practice hours (two four-hour blocks: 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.). You can customize operatory hours and make them different from your practice hours. Dentrix stores setup information on the file server and that information is available to all computers on the network.

Note: You can also close an operatory for a selected date by clicking Schedule in the Operatory Setup dialog box.

2.   Select the operatory that you want to set up, and then click Setup.

The Operatory Setup [Operatory Name] dialog box appears.
