What would Dayna do … about reactivating past due dental patients?
Dental Practice Management
In this month's installment of What Would Dayna Do?, Dayna Johnson answers a dental hygienist's question about how to reactivate patients who are way overdue for their visit to your practice. "When you call and email and send postcards to a patient and hear nothing back, you come to a realization that they're not coming back," Johnson said. "However, some practices just don't want to give up. It may be 18 months past their due date or 24 months past their due date and dental practices are still wondering, 'How can I get them back in here?'"
