Web Sched New Patient

Web Sched New Patient Appointments, powered by Patient Viewer, is an eService that allows new patients 18 years of age and older to schedule their first appointment online. It is a paid service and you must be on support with an active registration key. The responsive design is intended for use on both desktop computers and mobile devices.

Sign Up: In version 17.1 and greater, use the eServices Signup Portal. For all other versions, contact Open Dental. Fees for Software, Support, and Services

How it works:

  1. Practice is issued a URL and links to it from their website.
  2. New patient clicks the link, selects an available appointment, enters basic contact information, and schedules it.
  3. Scheduled appointments instantly show in your Open Dental database appointment schedule and a new patient record is created.
  4. Track appointments made via Web Sched using the Appointments report.
