Appointment book setup instructions

Setting up your appointment book for scheduling patient visits


From the main page of DentalWriter you will want to setup your rooms. You will need at least one room set up so you can add the provider to that room for scheduling.

After you have a room setup, go to 'Setup' then 'Providers'  and then select the provider you want to add to the room.

You will see two tabs at the top of the selected provider. Click the 'Appointment book' tab.


Add any provider code you want, this should be something that you can use to recognize that specific provider/Doctor.


Next select the default room you created for that doctor.


Setting up Rooms

Once this is all setup you can save and close back to the main patient list. At the top of the patient list there is a calendar icon that will open the appointment book.
