Quick Summary:  Nothing else matters if patients don't accept the treatment you recommend.  A significant component of case acceptance is how your team manages patients from treatment presentation, to sequencing of care, to financing and payment.  Joy Millis explains where things might be going awry and teaches how to get the team on the same page for better case acceptance.

Course Description:  Who has the greatest influence on your patients’ decisions about treatment?  Can you predict that when patients call, they will schedule an appointment, show up, have a magical new patient experience, receive comprehensive care, return for continuing care, and refer new patients your way?  Joy will help you and your entire team recognize the value of a patient and the power of your influence to help patients make the best decisions about treatment.
Learning objectives:
