Open Dental is designed for use in a paperless office, but there are still some offices that like to use printed routing slips. Open Dental can print a batch of routing slips for all appointments for an entire day. To customize routing slips, see Routing Slip Layout.
There are two places to print routing slips:
From the Appointments Module
- Right click on an appointment, then click Routing Slip.
- Click the Print Icon. Print all routing slips for the day, or for the current view.
From the Reports window
- In the Main Menu, click Reports, Standard.
- In the Daily section, click Routing Slips.
- Providers: Highlight the Providers to print routing slips for. Check All to select all providers.
- Clinics: Highlight the clinics to print routing slips for. Check All to select all clinics.
- Date: Enter the date. Click Today to insert today's date, or Displayed to insert the current date shown in the Appointments module.
- Click OK.
Below is an example of the internal Routing Slip.
