Our focus is to develop SmileSnap with convenience and efficiency to both patient and provider every step of the way. The platform is fully customizable to support any type of dental practice or service and can be designed around your brand. The practice can track every aspect of moving patients through the funnel with a robust dashboard that can scale to include multiple office locations and team members.”
