Hey – Who’s In Charge Here?

Who’s In Charge?

One thing people tend to forget when they are on the phone with a potential patient is – Who’s In Charge Here?? It’s up to the team member to gently and kindly take the call back to where you want it to go, including making the appointment.

Check out the callers today and see if you can find out “Who’s In Charge?”

Our two calls today are totally different, but both demonstrate what not to do. In the first one, a super kind and caring team member doesn’t realize that she can take the call where it needs to go. And the second one – well you just have to hear it to believe it! What would The Dental Practice Fixers (Dr. Richard Madow and Dr. David Madow) do? Listen and find out!

Do you have a question that you want answered on our podcast?
