Do you ever wonder what a patient’s age is before they arrive at your office? Knowing a patient’s age can help you prepare for a patient’s arrival. If they are younger patients, you may need to talk with their parents. If they are older patients, you may need to help them walk into the office and/or complete their forms.

To help you work more efficiently, the Calendar in Dentrix Ascend conveniently displays patients’ ages on their appointment cards so you can see them without having to look up patient records or open their appointments.

By default, the patient ages appear on the appointment cards.

If for some reason you don’t want to see patient ages on the appointment cards, you can easily hide them.

To hide the patient ages from the appointment cards, open the View menu, and toggle the Hide patient ages switch to On.
