Along with sitting in traffic and waiting in line at the DMV, time spent in a waiting room is ranked among life’s top inconveniences. Who enjoys sitting in an enclosed space long periods of time with 30-year-old magazines in a lackluster room? Even with appointments, wait times can be lengthy since the majority of dental offices tend to run behind due to mismanaged schedules or overbooking.
One of the easiest and lightening quick ways to create chaos in a dental office is for the daily appointment schedule to be derailed. Chaos in the dental office can come in many forms: in the form of an overcrowded or empty waiting room, when there are no set concrete goals and if no one is responsible for managing dental patient scheduling. Get back on track with our ideal dental solutions to eliminate the chaos and maintain a smooth and productive dental appointment scheduling process.
The loud whir of dental tools. The scraping of sharp tools chipping away at your teeth. The suctioning and sprays of water from the water jet. Just a typical visit to the dentist. But for many people, it may be one of the scariest and worst experiences in the world. In fact, 30 to 40 million people avoid dental care as a result of dental anxiety and fear.
If a patient leaves your dental office feeling uncomfortable, frustrated, annoyed or dissatisfied with their experience, they more than likely won’t be coming back. That is the very last thing anyone at your office wants to happen at the end of an appointment. The goal instead is for your dental patients to walk out of your doors saying “WOW!” and ready to sing your praises to friends and family.
