Dental Practice Made Simple: Incomplete treatment

By Theresa Pablos, editor in chief

July 21, 2021 -- Dental Practice Made Simple is a video series from and Levin Group. Tune in every Wednesday for a quick tip from Dr. Roger P. Levin to learn how to build high-powered, proven systems that lead to practice success.

In many practices, reaching out to patients with incomplete treatment does not happen with any consistency, noted Dr. Roger P. Levin in the latest episode of Dental Practice Made Simple. Blocking out time for calls is essential to getting these patients back in the chair.

The longer it takes a practice to contact a patient, the less likely that patient is to follow through with treatment, according to Levin. He recommends scheduling reminder calls on a consistent basis by blocking time on the office manager's calendar.

"If we don't block some time to reach out to these patients who have not completed treatment, we will do it very inconsistently and chaotically, which will result in a very low-level situation in terms of increasing your practice production," Levin said.
