  • Build a Team that Rocks

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 10/19/2021 at 1:00 PM (CDT)

    To take a practice to the next level, well-defined systems and proper training must be in place. When team members understand the “why” behind what they are asked to do, the practice runs more efficiently and smoothly. When all the team members recognize their purpose, they will work harder together to achieve the desired goals. This 90-minute webinar will review the importance and skills of creating the ultimate customer service experience for patients to produce a happier, motivated team and loyal, lifelong patients. Participants will learn how to understand what patients are thinking and how they process information to help increase case acceptance. Most offices have a backdoor problem, and discovering how to close it will take the focus off pursuing only new patients and help the practice’s numbers grow. Code: WPM211019
