Patient Experience

When the patient opens the online scheduling link after it is sent to them, they will be required to enter in their First & Last name and their Birthday. If this information does not match any patient information on file, we will inform the patient to ensure all fields are correct, or to ensure that if they are a new patient, they select the New patient check box.

Once this is complete they will select their Reason for Visit from the available options you have set up. This will prompt them to either select a Specific Provider or be seen by the Next Available Provider that can be scheduled through the online scheduling settings.

Last, they will select a Time Slot from the available times Engagement [Modento] is able to read from your Practice Management Software (Dentrix, Eaglesoft, Open Dental) and the time durations you have selected.
