Recare Overview (4:39)

Topic Progress:

Dentrix Ascend has everything you’ll need to keep your hygiene schedule full and keep you productive. When you have set up your recare types and patient communications, Dentrix Ascend has the tools to send automated reminders to patients and allow patients to conveniently book online. The unique routing panel helps keep your schedule full by alerting you at patient check out when a patient does not have a recare appointment scheduled. The recare reports and widgets in Dentrix Ascend also help you keep a full schedule by tracking your patient recare appointments so you can easily see who has a recare appointment and who is due for a recare appointment.
