Dental emergencies don’t always happen during business hours, but that’s not a problem when you have a dentist answering service on your team.
Even though it can be quiet after-hours at a dental office, there’s always the risk that your patients could have an accident or suddenly break a tooth and need emergency care. Manning the phones for the dentist’s office yourself can be mentally stressful and emotionally taxing, especially if you never get to relax of have any “off” time.
A dentist answering service can take those calls on your behalf, handle the common questions that come in and route any emergencies to your cell phone. An answering service for a dental office can save you money over a full-time receptionist and it helps to prevent the professional burnout that can come from never being able to leave your work at work.
