Even worse, patients could be caught off guard by surprise fees and may blame you as a result, causing them to search for dental care elsewhere. With a dental answering service, you can avoid these problems, save money running your practice, and ensure much more in the process.

One of the most common aspects of building a team of support staff is teaching them how to use the technology in your office. Of course, the technology we’re referring to is the management software used to organize and chart your current patients, as opposed to the digital x-ray machine. Unfortunately, teaching your new hires how to use this software can be a time-consuming process. Alternatively, choosing a dental answering service can streamline the entire process without sacrificing quality. Whether it’s communicating with patients to confirm post-op appointments or filling your hygiene scheduling, here’s how you can benefit from a team who already knows your software inside and out.
