MyPerioPath with "MyPerioProgress" Section
OralDNA Labs recently enhanced its MyPerioPath patient lab report with the addition of an expanded section called 'MyPerioProgress.' The MyPerioProgress section is a new, third page that is automatically generated for patients who have taken the MyPerioPath test more than once.
