Enabling Phone Assistant on Your Workstation

Phone Assistant cross-references incoming phone calls with patient information from Dentrix, Open Dental, or Eaglesoft, showing you an existing patient's details automatically when they call. Once our Technical Support team has installed Phone Assistant on your server, all you need to do is enable it on each computer workstation at your practice.  Check out the steps below to learn how.

Note: To be able to use Phone Assistant, a member of our Technical Support team has to install it on your server first.  If you're interested in using Phone Assistant, contact your Customer Success Manager or our Customer Support team so we can schedule you for an install.
