AADOM LiveCast: Empowering Patients to Accept Care Through Communication and Consistency
Approved for 1 CE towards AADOM Designations
Case acceptance in the dental field is the very heartbeat of the practice. You may get 100 new patients per month calling or coming in for an examination, but if none move forward with treatment, your practice could stagnate, or even worse, become a practice that serves patients based on their own emergent situations. The tone of each day will become chaotic and uncertain.
In order to have a high percentage of treatment acceptance, every team member must understand, accept and promote the philosophy of the practice. Communication and consistency are two of the most important aspects of great case acceptance. You must empower and train your team to have influential conversations that empower patients to move forward with treatment. Empowering them through understanding the treatment being recommended, their financial responsibility and by removing barriers to care. That’s where CareCredit’s new Quickscreen – which is integrated into Revenue Well – can help. We’ll show you how to integrate this new feature into your financial conversations, making it even easier for patients to accept recommended care. If you’re ready to empower yourself, your team and your patients so they can more easily say yes to the treatment they want and need, tune in to our Facebook Live to learn more.
