Adjust the Length of an Appointment

First, map appointment codes/ types in LocalMed

  2. From the LocalMed Connect module, navigate to the Appointment types connected section and click on the gear icon

  3. From the Appointment Types module on the right hand side, select Mapped

  4. Make note of each code/appointment type listed on the left hand side, which have been pulled from Dentrix (You'll need these codes in the next step)

Next, adjust the appointment length in Dentrix

Note: This adjustment requires User Admin permissions in Dentrix.

This adjustment is for multicodes only (ie: xxNPA).
