Ay caramba!! It’s complicated, and complication means delays and wasted time for the dentist.
Well, I’ll be sharing good news with NADSM attendees. We are now offering our DSM clients a solution to help get those questions addressed early so that patients come in the door engaged, informed and qualified.
The general dentistry patient journey looks like this, pretty standard stuff – they find a dentist, they do their research, they come in, they pay, they leave a review and ‘Shazam’!:
General Dentistry Patient Journey
Sleep Apnea Patient Journey
Imagine that early in the process they find the practice online and can interact with the doctor or coordinator live (well, not really live, that’s the beauty). During the “live” interaction, they are invited to tell the doctor about their sleep status (test/no test, AHI, no CPAP/CPAP fail, insurance or cash pay) via a short video. At the doctor’s leisure (not during precious clinic hours) the doctor is able to introduce the patient to their practice, answer a few questions, and invite the patient to come in and chat with a coordinator for more details.
This saves everyone time, and more importantly, allows the doctor or coordinator to make a quick, but lasting impression on a potential patient.
We are excited to demo this solution at NADSM!
