The Art of Dental Finance and Management

The Five Functions in Your Dental Practice That Should Be Automated (But Probably Aren’t)

September 23, 2020 | Podcast

Dentists can benefit greatly by utilizing technology tools to automate practice functions. Use of technology and automation allows dental practices to operate efficiently and can lead to increased profitability.

In this episode of The Art of Dental Finance and Management podcast, Art visits with Daniel Larsen, principal product manager from Henry Schein One. Art and Daniel discuss the five things in your practice that should be automated, but likely are not:

  1. Appointment scheduling
  2. Routing slips
  3. Payment processing
  4. Patient forms
  5. Imaging
