Selected Doctors for Dental Location

Please select the doctors who are associated with this practice location.

The first doctor listed will be considered the primary doctor for this location on the IDA portals and directories.

You can override this setting and reference multiple doctors by using the settings in the box at the bottom of the page.

All doctor profiles are stored in the “Doctors” section of the Control Panel.

Right now, we’re in the “Practice Locations” section. So what we’re doing here is selecting which doctors are associated with this particular geographic practice location.

The information you enter here, in the “Selected Doctors” area of the “Practice Locations” section, is used to create your dental directory listings on the 1stDDS portal network.

This is different from the “Selected Doctors” area in the “Customize Portals” section. The distinction isn’t important to a single-doctor practice with only one facility, but it’s crucial for large practices with multiple doctors, locations and web portals.

For instance, there may be four different doctors who work out of the same location, so you would list all four here in the “Practice Locations” section. Then, in the “Customize Portals” section, you can decide which of those four doctors you want to display on a web portal associated with that location. For example, you might list all four doctors on the Family Dentistry portal, but you might only list the orthodontist on your Braces portal.
