Welcome back to Dental Drill Bits! In this week's episode, the second installment of our "The 3 R's for Practice Management" series, we're diving deep into the crucial "recall process" in your dental practice. Without a solid recall process, there's a good chance your patients won't return on their own. We'll explore the fact that only 39.85% of people make it to the dentist every year, putting the responsibility on us to bring them back for those essential appointments. We reveal how a simple report reaching back 18 months could unveil a surprising number of patients in need of re-care – ranging from hundreds to even 2,000+ who haven't been rescheduled. But don't worry; we've got exciting tips and tricks up our sleeves to engage your patients beyond the mundane email reminders.

Tune in as we uncover how to leverage the power of phone, text, and email for maximum recall effectiveness!
