Planned Appointment Tracker  

The Planned Appointment Tracker lists by date every Planned Appointment that has been created but not scheduled. If a patient does not schedule a planned appointment, or if the scheduled appointment is deleted, this system will track the appointment so they don't slip through the cracks. This tool is useful for keeping your production levels as high as possible.

To make this process work, every patient who needs treatment of any kind MUST have a planned appointment created before they leave the office.
