Multiple Patient Scheduling – Working Smarter, Not Harder
Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD & Staff
Efficient multiple patient scheduling is the answer to increased productivity without sacrificing service. With a motivated and organized team, multiple patients can be treated at the same time producing more prevention and treatment. The concept requires a true team effort. Somebody has to be the “quarterback”—the front-desk scheduler. Somebody must coordinate the clinical activity—the lead dental assistant. In larger practices, there must be cross-trained staff who are interested and educated to accomplish expanded clinical functions. Finally, the dentist is the coach and provides organization and leadership. This video demonstrates how multiple patient scheduling can produce a motivated and excited team that will offer better service to your patients.
