Module 1 - Case presentation - Close the Sale

Many dental treatment plans are presented to patients who do not have symptoms, making case acceptance more challenging. The objective of any case presentation appointment is to achieve acceptance of treatment and a commitment to begin. This is a critical time in which the patient will make the decision whether to “buy into” the treatment plan and make an investment in their oral health.

 

What you will learn:

 

  • What should your case acceptance rate be?

  • How to present treatment and demonstrate the path to moving forward

  • How to make financial arrangements at the time of booking the appointment(s)

  • How to Close the Sale

What you will learn:

  • Assignment vs. non-assignment - the effect on accounts receivable

  • Make financial arrangements that work for the practice
