Roles and Rights Overview (4:38)

Topic Progress:

Dentrix Ascend uses the Role Based Access Control (RBAC) model to give users—your team members—the right to perform selected tasks within the platform. As an administrator, you create roles for various job functions in your organization. Each role has permissions or rights, for example to simply see, or to edit, or delete patient information or configuration information. Team members acquire the rights they need to perform their tasks when you assign them to a role.
