The front office is extremely important to any dental practice. What happens on the phone when prospective patients call in can make or break their first impression of your practice (and sometimes even break their appointment if the call was handled poorly). Does your front office attract or rub patients the wrong way? Do you even know? These questions and more are the focus of Mary Beth's conversation with Michael Arias of The Dental Marketer.
