June 9, 2015 - Fred Joyal Offers Surprising Look at Dental Office Managers’ Changing Role

LOS ANGELES, CA (June 9, 2015) – Futuredontics® is offering a live encore presentation of its popular webinar “The Changing Role of the Dental Office Manager.” Hosted by company founder Fred Joyal, this special return engagement takes an in-depth look at how dental office managers are addressing the new challenges they face in today’s rapidly changing professional landscape.

The hour-long webinar will be held on Wednesday, June 17th, beginning at 11am PST (2 pm EST), and is open to all dentists, office managers and their staffs. The presentation will conclude with a live online Q&A session led by Fred Joyal.

The webinar and a companion 22-page report are based on a recent nationwide survey of over 1,000 dental office managers. Futuredontics regularly conducts these surveys to tap into the combined wisdom of knowledgeable practice management professionals working at the forefront of their field. Among its findings, the 2015 study identified four key areas —new patients/appointing, digital communications, social media, and dormant patient reactivation — which office managers say now have the greatest impact on practice production. 

“Working on the frontlines every day, dental office managers are uniquely positioned to identify emerging business trends in dentistry,” said Fred Joyal. “Their insights into a variety of hot topics — everything from Yelp and online reviews to 24/7 appointing — are a great way to keep ahead of the curve and help your practice maximize operating efficiencies and production.”

Fred Joyal is a respected authority on dental marketing best known for founding Futuredontics, the parent company of 1-800-DENTIST®. He is the author of the bestselling book “Everything is Marketing: The Ultimate Strategy for Dental Practice Growth” and the host of a popular series of dental marketing webinars and online videos.
