Posting a recall procedure updates (advances) the due date of the corresponding recall type attached to the patient and causes that recall type to become unscheduled for that patient unless that patient already has an appointment for the same recall procedure scheduled in the future; in which case, the corresponding recall type attached to the patient does not change.
If the status of a recall type attached to a patient becomes unscheduled, Dentrix Ascend will present you with the opportunity to schedule the next recall appointment for the patient after you complete his or her appointment for today.
