Two male customer support team members Do you have a specialty dental practice that focuses on periodontics, orthodontics, endodontics, or oral surgery? Have you ever tried to work with a dental support team to handle calls, scheduling, or chart audits only to find out they don’t work with specialty offices? Unfortunately, many dental support teams don’t have the knowledge or expertise to provide these services for specialty practices, or they don’t deal with support services like handling doctor referrals or complex insurance claims.

March 4, 2018

Man on laptop taking notesWhen dental offices trust a support team to help with their patients, they likely expect very little when it comes to patient relationships. Picking up the phone, taking a few notes, and having one of the dental office staff members call the patient back isn’t really helping very much. At Dental Support Specialties, we do things a little differently. Not only do we offer actual scheduling assistance and treat your patients with the same respect and kindness that you would, but we also help dental practices by auditing existing dental patient charts to reestablish positive relationships with lapsed patients.

We Use Your Management Software!

February 14, 2018

Woman looking at online calendarWhen you picked your dental office management software, you probably spent countless hours talking to sales teams, using trial software, and crunching the numbers, so you know the software you chose is the best one for your office. Then, your team spent weeks or months learning this software. When you decide to seek out extra help with your patient scheduling, guess what? The scheduling service uses a different software, and they expect your team to convert to this system. It’s more than frustrating. It’s a waste of time and money. Lucky for you, there’s a better option – Dental Support Specialties. We’re not your typical dental support and scheduling service provider. One of the unique factors that sets us apart is that we train our team to use your software – not the other way around. Even better, our team members are trained to use the majority of dental management systems, so they may not even need additional training to get started offering support.

Don’t Let Dental Insurance Companies Wear You Down

February 13, 2018

Smiling male customer support specialistWe’ve heard it all before. Dental insurance providers don’t respond for months. You feel like your patients receive less time from your team because they’re so busy with all the dental insurance claims. Many dental offices today tackle these inconveniences by avoiding dental insurance claims altogether. Unfortunately, that’s not the best choice for patients either. Many will only seek treatment from dentists who take their insurance, and other patients will spend more time trying to file their own claims or lose money by not filing at all. There’s a simple answer that offers a win for your office and your patients – Dental Support Specialties. We offer full service dental insurance and billing support to make it easy for you and your team members to focus on caring for your patients while we take care of all your dental insurance and billing needs.
