Change is happening and it’s a scary time. We’re forced into
difficult situations with some very tough decisions to make on an
almost daily basis. The uncertainty is hard for everyone and we’re
all doing whatever we can to get through this for our families and our
Business owner to business owner--- I have a young family of my own, a
team who’s counting on me, bills, rent, and payroll just like you. I
know it’s challenging and I know you’re doing your best. We all
Your practice will be fully functional, patients will be back, the
term ‘social-distancing’ will become a thing of the past. And we’ll
get back to normal. Don’t let the fear and doubt you feel today keep
you from doing the things right now that can have a huge impact on
You have free time. What you do with that time right now, during this
‘downtime’ will affect how quickly your practice rebounds once all of
this is over. It’s not time to relax - it’s time to get to work. If
you act quickly and work on the right things, you can position your
first month back as potentially the best financial month you’ve ever
experienced--- and ultimately 2020 can become your best financial year
The dental practices we serve have over 80,000,000 patients.
Pre-pandemic there were 44% of these patient
unscheduled. When we look at the open operatory time in practices, it
would take on average 3.8 more operatories per practice to schedule
all of these unscheduled patients within 6 months. THIS WAS
Today, this unscheduled percentage rose to 52% and it will get worse. Meaning this unscheduled patient issue will continue to get substantially bigger. There is ZERO CHANCE that you'll be able to get them all in your practice this year.
Now more than ever you need to prioritize patients and get the patients that have the highest reimbursement rates, that have unscheduled treatment, that have greater hygiene needs. Patients that can pay. The problem is if you don't have Dental Intelligence you have NO WAY TO PRIORITIZE.
This is why our patient filter is so critical. You cannot just let any patient fill your chairs right now. You need to identify who needs the most dentistry, which in most cases, happens to be the patients of greatest value and that will provide an immediate cashflow injection into your practice.
How do you get these prioritized patients scheduled? Most team members
are home and even if they were in the office, calling them all is
difficult. You could use your patient communication software to text
them - but what will that do? Get them to call and request an
appointment? That's just not going to work...
Having our online, real-time, scheduling tool is vital. Your team members can use our online scheduling application tool from their home, and appointments go instantly into your practice management system.
NO PHONE CALL, just real time scheduling.
With our unique position of continuously monitoring 8000+ practices, we’ve identified a plan of attack that some practices are using to minimize impact and set themselves up for a fast rebound post COVID-19.
To be clear--- we’ve identified a step-by-step action plan that practices are using right now that will set you up to quickly rebound from this pandemic.
Not having this information will delay your ability to rebound.
The best way to get you this information is via an online workshop. It’s completely free of charge, there is nothing to buy, no selling--- and we cannot stress enough that you attend.
In the workshop, we will walk you through what these proactive practices are doing, the tools they’re using, and exactly how to use them. You already have some of the tools to implement this plan and some of the tools you don’t have yet--- we’re giving you those additional tools for free.
Again, we have a step-by-step plan to give you and the free tools to implement that plan. We urge you to attend this online workshop.
I promise our tools will enable you to bounce back and to bounce back
fast. With the right patients and scheduling in the most efficient
We’ll get through this together,

One thing I learned from going through two crashes (the dotcom bubble
in 2000 and the 2008 real estate crash) is that the absolute best time
