Patient education overview

Patient education begins with the explanation of diagnoses, proposed procedures, and personal care instructions for the patient.

With our vast audio-visual presentation library and HD animations, dentists of all disciplines can take the time to present, review and respond to patient questions regarding upcoming procedures and their health.

Patients can access animations chair-side or from their online patient portal.

You can create custom animation playlists for each patient, or the system can automatically assign playlists to new patient records. To learn more about creating practice-wide playlist templates, see Practice settings: patient education.
