Taking a Photo of a Patient's ID Card or Paperwork

When a patient brings in hard copies of documents like referral paperwork or an ID card, you can take a Document Photo on your iPad instead of using your scanner!  Then, you can file the image straight into Dentrix, Open Dental, or Eaglesoft from YAPI.  Follow the instructions below to take a Document Photo on your iPad.
