Never Run Late!
If you run late, you are sending two messages to your patients: “We don’t respect your time” and “We can’t control our schedule.” Patients will absolutely leave your practice if you run late, although they won’t tell you that’s why they are leaving. And they certainly won’t refer others. In this very special episode of “The Dental Practice Fixers podcast” Dr. Richard Madow gives some great tips on keeping your schedule on time and keeping your patients (and team) happy. Don’t miss it!!
