Creating an Online Link for the Teledentistry Consent Form

While all other completed online forms return to the Document Queue on your YAPI Dashboard, YAPI's Consent for Teledentistry form is designed to come to your email so you can obtain patient consent  take emergency teledentistry appointments without having to go into the office.  To use this form and have YAPI send completed forms straight to your practice's email, you must create a link to send to your patients by following the instructions below.

Note: This form was created specifically to accommodate practices who need to close their doors temporarily for public health and safety (in the case, the COVID-19 pandemic).  When using this form, always make sure to follow local, state, and federal guidelines regarding telehealth and patient consent.
