Reminding patients of their appointments can greatly reduce the amount of failed appointments in your practice
Using SMS and email means that messages can be delivered, quickly and accurately to the patient.
Like all correspondence in Dentally, any reminders sent will be kept in the patient’s correspondence history.
If you choose to send your appointment reminders manually, you can send an SMS directly from the appointment in the Calendar. Right-click on the appointment and select "Send SMS".
You will be shown a confirmation screen before the SMS is created, choose "Send SMS" and it will be sent.
These will be sent the requested number of days before the patient’s appointment using a template you can edit in Practice Settings.
All reminder messages sent via automation rules or practice settings will include the Calendar Invitation, and any patient who has opted in to receive SMS or Emails will receive a reminder.
We have a web page to help you with setting up automatic appointment reminders.
