Opening the ASAP List      

If a patient wants an appointment sooner than your next available time, Dentrix lets you flag scheduled appointments as ASAP (As Soon As Possible). Once you flag an appointment as ASAP, it appears on the ASAP List. This satisfies the patient's request for an appointment sooner than the first available one and provides you with a list of patients you can fill holes with in an otherwise full schedule.

In addition to providing you with the names of patients who can fill open appointment times, the interactive nature of the ASAP List makes it simple to contact a patient and then create or move an appointment as needed.

Note: For information on using the toolbars, click Appointment list toolbars.
