Dental Patient Control

Dental patients are routed to the Dental Scheduling Desk. This is situated on the left hand side of the stairway going up to the second floor. The person manning this station is responsible for:

1- Keeping a steady flow of patients for the dentists.

2- Making sure that patients and family waiting for treatment do not go upstairs to the clinic or wait on the stairs prior to the time they are to see a dentist.

3- Scheduling patients for the current clinic and/or future clinics, always giving priority to surgical candidates.

4- Maintaining or passing custody of the patient's charts to the proper person.
