It’s here! At long last… Smile-tastic! 2.0… the updated app. I am really excited about it!
What the app does:
- Send reminders to my patients to help them remember to change and replace their elastics
What’s new on the app:
- Free to download
- Contact the office directly from the app
- Access the website directly from the app
What’s planned for the app in the future:
- Two-way text communication
- Camera features
What does this mean for you, my orthodontic family?:
Right now, it means that all my patients wearing elastics, get my reminders (in other words, I get to nag them about it even when they’re not here in the office) to help them wear their elastics. This is the most important thing they can do to ensure that their treatment finishes on time!
The new features make the app useful to all my patients and their families because it allows them to contact the office and access the website, all from the app. Why is that beneficial? When is my next appointment, what should I do about that loose bracket, what’s new on the blog???… No intermediate step, just directly from the app, and who doesn’t love that??? I love the simplicity of apps, and the fact that they are right there on my phone whenever I may feel the urge.
And in the future??? Those features will allow us to communicate one-on-one if an emergency should arise. Send me a photo and we’ll talk it through! Really exciting! Stay tuned…
How do I get the app?:
- Go to the app store
- Download the app
- Accept notifications
- Wear your elastics
- Finish treatment faster!
