April 8, 2015 - Fred Joyal Webinar Looks at the Changing Role of Dental Office Managers

LOS ANGELES, CA (April 8, 2015) – Futuredontics® is hosting a free webinar for dental practice management professionals called “The Changing Role of the Dental Office Manager.” Led by company founder Fred Joyal, this exclusive presentation takes an in-depth look at the four biggest challenges dental office managers face today and provides practical steps for addressing them.

The hour-long webinar will be held on Wednesday, April 15th, beginning at 11am PST (2 pm EST), and is open to all dentists, office managers and their staffs. After the presentation, host Fred Joyal will remain available online for a live Q&A session.

This webinar and a companion 22-page report are based on the results of Futuredontics’ recent nationwide survey of 1,064 dental office managers. The survey’s goal was to learn firsthand from people on the front line what it takes to manage a high-performance practice in 2015. Among its findings, the study revealed that office managers believe the way they address four key issues —social media, new patients/appointing, digital communications and dormant patient reactivation — has the greatest impact on the success of the practice.

“Dental office managers offer a unique perspective on the business side of dentistry,” said Fred Joyal. “So it’s natural that we go to them to learn about the latest trends in practice management. Their answers to this year’s survey are eye-opening and are certain to change the way you think about everything from Yelp and online reviews to 24/7 appointing.”

A respected authority on dental marketing, Fred Joyal is 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. Fred is a highly sought-after keynote speaker and the owner of the weekly blog,, which explores a variety of industry topics like how online reviews, changes in appointing protocols and dormant patient reactivation impact practice growth.
