Many dental practices handle phone answering and patient scheduling in-house. This eliminates the cost of outsourcing and can prevent miscommunication or mishandling of sensitive information. However, dental offices that handle their own phone calls are often limited by the schedule of their office, unable to make calls in the evening when most patients are home, and limited in the volume of calls they can make on any given day.
Why Do I Need One?
Dental call centers make contacting your patients easy because they can answer patient calls at any time of day, eliminating voice recorded answering at your office for after-hours calls. Not only that, but dental call centers are trained to handle all patient scheduling and call answering with warmth and professionalism. When it comes to answering calls from your patients or contacting them, dental call centers are efficient and effective.
What to Avoid
However, not all dental call centers are created equal. Dental call centers ought to be HIPAA compliant, able to handle your patients’ sensitive information in the correct way. Not only that, but dental call centers ought not to charge an inordinate amount for appointment scheduling. Additionally, you should avoid dental call centers that charge anything other than a per-minute rate–this ensures that you only pay for the work that actually gets done on your behalf. You want live call answering and regular reporting.
