The Self-Managed Front Desk Staff
NAILS the Appoint/Confirm Stage

When staff gets the Appoint/Confirm stage right, they become more self-managed and a fascinating trickle-down effect takes place. All 12 stages begin to improve rapidly, creating a dramatic effect on each patient experience.
As you know, when patient experiences improve, you create higher profits, more free time and less stress.  


And it all begins with the right training on the Appoint/Confirm stage.
Starbucks trains baristas for weeks. Walmart trains greeters.
Is it time for your team to be trained?


What you get From Training Staff
This is what happens when your front desk staff is trained and becomes “self-managed”:

  1. you’re free to focus on patients
  2. you delegate more tasks you don’t enjoy
  3. you spend more time building the practice
  4. you have more time to treatment plan well
  5. you avoid stress from “front office” mess
  6. you have mental room for great case presentation
  7. your cash flow puts you in a better financial place

This all begins with the Appoint/Confirm Stage, the most important stage of all 12.

How will you help train your staff to get the Appoint/Confrim Stage right?

The LIVE Training Event will get you the 7 easiest techniques to start using now.
