Tired of investing your time and energy into a treatment presentation only to have the patient say, “I’ll think about it.” In today’s economy, money is the dental professional’s primary obstacle for a patient to move forward with recommended treatment. Have you found this to be true in your practice? Are you finding that no matter how great your dentistry is you just can’t seem to get your patients over the financial hurdle? If so, discover, develop and implement the techniques and skills needed to get patients to say YES to treatment. Each member of your team plays an important role in getting the patient to accept treatment they NEED and WANT!
