The patient search is at the top left hand corner of Dentally. It allows you to search for patients in a number of ways.
You can search for a patient by:
- Entering their name e.g.Jane Smith - you can enter this either surname or first name first, the search will match whatever you type
- Entering their mobile phone number e.g. 0709….
- Entering their date of birth e.g. 22/04/1980 Please note that you must use this format when searching dates of birth. Any other format will not work, for example: ‘22nd April 1980’

If you need to search for an archived patient you add an asterisk ‘*’ before the search criteria you use.
