Four technology solutions you need in 2021
A lot has changed over the last 12 months, let alone the last 20 years.
In one single year, dental practices have had to embrace technology at a pace like no other, whether they like it or not.
Whilst technology can be viewed as disruptive, embracing new systems and software solutions can make working life faster and more effortless.
1. Let patients book on demand
Imagine losing a new patient to a competitor because your front desk staff missed an unanswered call.
If your practice doesn’t allow new patients to book online on-demand when visiting your website, then you’re missing out.
In fact, you are probably losing patients to your competitors up the road who accept patients even when your doors are closed.
2. Covid-19 pre-screening
Pre-screening is key to infection control and keeping patients and staff safe. Could your dental practice afford to be in the news over a possible outbreak?
You can now automate this process and ensure responses are recorded in your practice management system.
3. Contactless patient check-in
Keep your staff and patients socially distant while giving patients extra peace of mind, by letting them check-in without needing to interact with staff or other patients at the front desk who may be paying or booking in their next treatment.
4. Digitalise your patient pre-appointment forms
By letting patients complete pre-appointment forms at home, patients will feel less stressed, especially if they are already running late for an appointment.
What’s more, patients will spend less time in the waiting room of your surgery and your front desk can spend less time on manual data entry.
