Course Title: Use A Mobile App to Improve Your Practice Management
Presenter: Peter Outar
Course Time: 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM EST
Mobile technology is reshaping the world we live in. According to the Pew Research Center in the 2nd quarter of 2015, close to 2 billion mobile users use their devices to search for products and services, social media and for interaction. Is your dental practice or clinic taking advantage of this trend? This presentation will address using mobile technology to increase patient engagement, further patient education, increase recall appointments, improve collection rates, offer new products and use social media to benefit your practice. The discussion will also touch on using the mobile app to improve search engine rankings for your website and basic things that Google looks for to rank your website higher.
