Power Questions for the New Patient Phone Call
“What Spear Online curriculum has done is really focused and organized the learning process for our staff. We don’t have a whole lot of time in our practice for education because we’re so busy with patient care. So, having something that is systemized and focused like the curriculum has really helped us... and it energizes the office.”
- Bob Schoenenberger, D.D.S.
Relief With Practice Recovery
The new program provides you with a framework to develop an action plan for financial stability and team alignment in a time of crisis. Get immediate help through our “4 Key Initiatives,” which you can prioritize based on your specific needs:
Money is crucial, more than ever. Missing opportunity for revenue in lean times can mean the difference between survival and failure.
Each practice needs a recovery scheduling expert so they can ramp up right away and put hundreds of cancelations into a meaningful cadence.
It’s essential to communicate clearly with patients that the dental office is safe and how your office is managing the crisis.
A practice needs to make it financially possible for often-skeptical patients to achieve their optimal oral health in a time of economic downturn.
