Implement a Membership Plan Now to Jump Start Your Dental Practice when the COVID-19 Crisis Lifts
In response to the COVID-19 crisis, and to prepare for when things return to normal, dental practices should implement a membership plan now.
Dental practice closures due to the COVID-19 crisis are creating a backlog of dental care treatment needs, from preventative to restorative and cosmetic. When this crisis lifts, patients will want to address their oral care needs, but they will be sensitive to price. Having a dental membership plan in place will enable your patients to access the care they need in a budget-friendly way.
This presentation will explore why a membership plan is a powerful tool that will help jump start your practice when the crisis lifts—and how it can be implemented now, virtually and without any cost to your practice.
