How Motivating Your Patient Can Help Them Commit to a Treatment Faster

The element of surprise is not the most comfortable for a patient in a dental setting. Getting your patients to commit to your treatment isn't always successful, especially if the treatment calls for permanent changes to their smile. In this webinar, we're going to show you how you can use a smile simluation to visually communicate with your patient what you envision for them and what the outcome of the treatment is going to be. When you know what to expect, case acceptance is much more likely.

Plus, we're going to be sharing actionable tips you can take back into your practices on how you can use your patients before and after pictures generated by the DSDApp to showcase and market your work on social media and attract new potential patient while remaining HIPPA compliant.
