To help your team prepare to bounce back from COVID-19, we’re providing practical tips you can share with your business partners and team members. We don’t know when the crisis will end, but we’re committed to helping you manage through it and come out of it better prepared to serve your patients.

Bounce Back Tip #5: Share Your Plans with Your Patients

As you prepare to re-open your organization, you will need to make some adjustments to help keep your patients and team safe. You’ll have to consider enhanced infection control processes and ways to encourage social distancing. The ADA released a Return to Work Interim Guidance Toolkit with helpful suggestions. One of the suggestions is to send your patients a letter reassuring them that it’s safe to visit your clinics.

With Dentrix Enterprise, you can create a custom “welcome back” message to be mailed as a letter or sent as email to your patients. Sharing your plans with your patients may help them feel safer coming back to the office.

Share these tips with your team and help them prepare your practice to bounce back from COVID-19.

Bounce Back Tip #4: 3 Ways to Prep Your Schedule for Patients

You care about your patients. Some of them are your close friends. Some even feel like family. We go out of our way for the people we care about. When you open your doors and begin seeing patients again, you may need to go out of your way for them.

For example, you may need to open earlier, stay open later, or see patients on weekends. You may want to reserve an operatory or blocks of time for patients who have a higher risk of becoming ill. And you may need to add time between appointments for extra sterilization measures to help keep your patients safe.

Dentrix Enterprise makes it easy to adjust your practice and provider schedules. Share these tips with your team and help them prepare your practice to bounce back from COVID-19.

Dentrix Enterprise includes tools to help you identify patients with urgent treatment plans, patients who are overdue for periodontal treatment, and patients who are willing to come in ASAP.
