LOS ANGELES, CA (July 9, 2013) – PatientActivator®, the award-winning patient communication & online marketing software from 1-800-DENTIST®, is giving dentists unprecedented control over their practice with a ground-breaking new mobile app. In response to requests from dentists and office managers for remote access to important practice tools, the company created a mobile app that gives dentists easy access to powerful practice communication and marketing tools - right from their mobile phone.
PatientActivator’s mobile app answers the demand for on-the-go access by offering the software’s most-used features remotely, including letting dentists quickly review all scheduled appointments, make evening check-in calls with a single touch, and review their online ratings and reviews – all from the palm of the their hand. And the convenient help screen also makes it easy to connect to the highly trained PatientActivator team for unlimited live support. One of the biggest time-savers is a new interface for doctor-to-patient calls, which lets doctors instantly dial patients with upcoming appointments, or check in on recovering patients, with just a single tap.
“Mobile devices are becoming the primary medium for accessing the Internet,” said Michael Turner, CEO of 1-800-DENTIST. “We want our members’ mobile experience with our software to be as seamless and efficient as the online software. PatientActivator’s mobile app does this by providing dynamic and efficient marketing tools – accessible anywhere.”
The free app is available to PatientActivator members via iTunes and the Android store and places a convenient icon right on their home screen. For all other mobile phone types, there’s also a Web accessible version that they can access by logging into http://m.patientactivator.com from their phone.
“We designed PatientActivator to help dentists manage their schedules, follow up with patients and monitor online reviews from one convenient dashboard,” said Michael Turner, CEO of 1-800-DENTIST. “The mobile app takes this convenience one step further. Now dentists can manage patient communications and increase production all from their phone.”
In addition, PatientActivator continues to provide their hallmark customized patient communications – including appointment confirmations, recall reminders, dormant patient reactivation and more – sent automatically via email, text and live phone call. There’s also a suite of social media and online marketing tools to help dentists gather more patient reviews, promote themselves on Facebook, increase their online presence and attract more new patients
online. The service offers the industry’s best customer service (unlimited live phone support with a friendly tech team) and is one of the only patient communication services dedicated exclusively to dentistry. It’s also the only patient reminder software supported by 1-800-DENTIST, the nation’s premier dental marketing company since 1986.
