About Our Company & Culture at YAPI

What started small, grew big. In 2009, YAPI started as a small custom-designed software solution for Dr. Gina Dorfman’s dental office. By 2011, YAPI came into the market for dental offices, revolutionizing the way thousands practice dentistry. Today, YAPI is known for its innovative technology and amazing company culture.

YAPI Was Born in a Dental Practice 

YAPI was co- created by a dentist. Many software platforms cater to multiple industries but YAPI solely focuses on the unique needs and challenges of dentistry. So we understand your frustrations, we know how hard you work, and we’re familiar with the limitations you are faced with. That’s why we are here for you and that’s why we built YAPI. 

YAPI Continues To Grow, Everyday 

As technology advances, so does YAPI. Our customers are our number one priority, and catering to their needs is what has made our company thrive. Today, thousands love and trust YAPI, and we know you will too!

Provide Exceptional Service

Our business may be software development, but our success is all about customer service. We always aim to exceed expectations. We encourage our team members to look at our business through the eyes of the customer because we don’t want to stop at delivering what works; we want to go the extra mile to deliver what delights.
