Running a medical practice of any kind is difficult. Fielding phone calls from current and future patients can take up many minutes of your day. So, the obvious answer is an in-house receptionist. A receptionist will answer your calls, take information from patients, and keep your schedule running smoothly. As helpful as a receptionist can be, however, the benefits are reflected in the cost. Salary.com claims that the average hourly pay for a receptionist is $18 an hour. Receptionist duties are vital to growing businesses, but saving money can be even more vital. This is where a dentist phone answering service may be useful for your practice.
A dentist phone answering service performs all of the duties a receptionist would. A virtual assistant will answer all your calls while you are working on patients. New patients will be greeted warmly and have their information taken while returning patients will be scheduled according to your availability. Even solicitors will be fielded and sent to your voicemail to keep the phone lines open to patients. Not to mention, these services come for a fraction of the price of an in-house receptionist.
