Unlocking the Power of the 'Patients Report' in Dentally

Are you making the most of Dentally's 'Patients Report'?  

With a wealth of valuable data at your fingertips, Dentally’s reporting tools provide you with everything you need to stay on top of your business goals. Today, we will guide you through using the 'Patients Report' to its full potential and show you how to create, save, and reuse standard custom segments of patient data effortlessly. 

You can tailor the report to meet specific criteria thanks to the left-hand side filter menu. Let's explore a few of the segments our very own Elevate team use with practices on our customer success program.  

The Basics 

The ‘Patients Report’ has a few features to help make your reporting workflow quicker and easier. In the top right of the report, you have three buttons: 

  • Messages: This is where you can send bulk messages to the currently filtered group of patients.  
  • More: From here, you can export the report data into Excel, where you can further filter your data. When viewing a currently saved report, you will also have the option to delete a previously saved report.  
  • Attributes: Allows you to pick and choose which attributes will be displayed and included on your report should you choose to export it.

Now we have the basics down, let's take a look at a few valuable segments that you can set up using the filters available to you. 

High-value treatments report segment 

One way to use the ‘Patients Report’ is to find all your patients with high-value treatment completed within a specified timeframe. This report can be ideal for targeting your marketing efforts of new high-end treatments to those patients who have previously spent that kind of money.  Discover more...
