Every year, Dental Practices spend thousands of pounds marketing and attracting leads to their practice. Each lead needs to be treated correctly to ensure that the patient enquiry turns into an appointment, and ultimately a client.

This programme is a mixture of presentation, facilitation, discussion and hands on coaching. Your receptionist will develop new behaviours and new skills so that your practice will stand out from the competition and ensure that enquiries turn into appointments. It does exactly what it says on the tin. We will coach your team members on how to take an enquiry and turn it into an appointment.
