To successfully send text messages, electronic statements, automated appointment and recare reminders, and online booking verifications through Dentrix Ascend, you must complete an SMS registration form. Providing accurate company information (such as a valid EIN) for the SMS registration will reduce the chance of your messages being filtered out as spam by cell phone carriers because this information increases your "trust score," which cell phone carriers use to determine if a message is spam.
Note: You must complete the SMS registration for each location that sends Application-to-Person (A2P) messages through Dentrix Ascend.
To complete the SMS registration form
If you are not already viewing the correct location, select it on the Location menu.
On the Settings menu, under Patient Care, click (or tap) Patient Communications.
The Patient Communications page opens.
Click (or tap) SMS Registration.
Note: If the registration for the current location has not been completed, or if the registration is being processed, the button has an orange warning symbol.
The SMS Registration dialog box appears.
