Why You Need a Dentist Answering Service
According to Forbes, 80% of people who get sent to voicemail by a business are not going to leave a voicemail because they do not think they are going to be listened to. That is partially true for some businesses. The day gets busy at work and voicemails go unanswered and, with them goes the possibility to schedule a patient.
There are a few instances where you might be missing out on potential patients. Perhaps the line is busy taking other calls or someone is calling you after hours. When someone reaches a busy line, they are likely to call somewhere else. If they cannot reach you when it is convenient for them, they will likely look elsewhere.
Having a dentist answering service ensures that you have someone to answer their phone calls no matter when they call. Your staff could be at home and be deep in sleep and still have patients able to book an appointment.
Something to also consider is that our answering service allows you to make follow-up calls to your patients to check on them after they have a procedure with you without overwhelming your receptionists.
Our answering service can make follow-up calls to your patients which will ensure that they know you care about them even after they left the office. They are more likely to return to your practice if they know that you care about them. Also, if they are having issues during your recovery, you will be alerted to that so you can help them.
