Futuredontics®, the nation’s leading provider of dental marketing services, is hosting a live encore presentation of its popular webinar, “Empty Chairs, Empty Bank Account: Evolving Patient Scheduling to Fit the Future.” Led by company founder Fred Joyal, this free presentation examines how many commonly used appointing practices actually hurt production and offers solutions to help dentists connect with time-strapped patients.

There’s been a radical shift in consumer expectations thanks to the Internet. People want convenience and instant gratification in everything they do, including scheduling a dental appointment. Unfortunately, the appointing practices at many dental offices don’t reflect this. Fred’s presentation will explore best practices for creating an appointing process that maximizes patient acquisition and retention. Topics covered include the need for 24/7 appointing, tips for eliminating no-shows, the benefits of block scheduling, tech tools that improve show-up rates, and more.
“Patients today are looking for dentists whenever they have a moment to spare, often late nights and weekends when most offices are closed,” Fred Joyal explained. “And they keep looking until they find one Practices must be able to accept appointments beyond the traditional 9 to 5 workday in order to connect with these people. This webinar will help dentists get in step with the changing scheduling needs of today’s patients.”
