Reminders Sent Report

 An easy to read page log to review outgoing appointment reminders is a vital logistical tool for any Dental Practice. In some cases, it is almost a necessity so as to determine whether patients have been able to review and confirm the times they have for their appointment. Thankfully YAPI has an easy to access log to show the current status of appointment reminders in a digital and printed format.
