Better Tracking for Our Clients Progressive Dental Marketing will now send all incoming calls directly to clients in the hope that this will lead to faster patient conversion.
Starting Tuesday, August 14, Progressive Dental Marketing will begin automatically forwarding all recorded phone calls directly to the email that we currently have on file for your office. At this time we monitor all inbound calls and only send those that are worth noting. Along with each call we offer compliments and feedback, such as strategies on how to better handle patient inquiries
and the best way to constantly follow-up with them. Instead of only sending select calls, every call that comes in through your call tracking number will be automatically sent to your office. This is to ensure that each doctor is receiving their calls in real time and is able to follow-up on any missed opportunities. We will continue to send separate emails noting your progress and any room for improvement
on notable calls. Please do not be alarmed by the influx of emails in your inbox. More emails means the marketing is working; this is a great thing! As always, we are available to assist your office with custom ways to manage this information. We look forward to watching your practice grow, and appreciate your partnership!

Telephone Tip for the Office Staff It’s important to keep your front desk staff refreshed
frequently asked questions that can have challenging answers. Q When someone calls asking how much a procedure costs, should I give him or her an exact price? A
In most cases you should avoid giving numbers over the phone. Instead, let the patient know that it would be misleading for you to give them a price over the phone before the doctor has seen him/her for a full exam. In select cases where you feel you will loose the perspective patient without giving a price, and if your office allows it, give a price range. Be sure to reiterate that the price is contingent upon an exam. When the prospective patient’s main focus is cost, build confidence with them and let them know that the office works with patients to make costs affordable.
