As a dental practice, your goal is not only to provide the best
dental care possible. It’s also to make patients feel welcome when they arrive
and prepared once they come back. It’s about making them feel comfortable
during every step of their dental appointment. This should include the initial

they should hear is an answering machine with no one to help them.

If you’ve been considering a dental answering service in
order to reduce administrative duties at your practice, you’ll want to make sure

to make sure that you’re giving them as much attention as they need. However,
answering their questions or scheduling their next appointments can prove
difficult if your employees are busy on the phone waiting for an insurance company
to respond. The time they spend on hold with dental insurers is time they could
