October 20, 2016 - Fred Joyal Webinar Reveals The Truth Behind What Dental Patients Want

LOS ANGELES, CA (October 20, 2016) – Futuredontics® announced today that company co-founder Fred Joyal is hosting a free webinar for dentists called “What Dental Patients Want.” In this special live presentation, Fred draws on new research to reveal the surprising factors that have the greatest impact on a consumer’s choice of a dental practice.

The hour-long webinar will be held on Wednesday, November 2nd, beginning at 11am PST (2 pm EST), and is open to all dental professionals. After the webinar, Fred will remain available online for a Q&A session.

Based on the findings of an exclusive nationwide survey of over 3,000 consumers, Fred shares the facts and figures behind the real — often startling — reasons patients choose, stay with and refer dentists. Highlights include: the ranking of 2016’s most popular ways patients find dentists; the top 5 influencers patients consider when selecting a dentist; little-known factors that cause patients to leave your practice and more.

“Our report holds nothing back,” said Fred Joyal. “We reveal the most influential factors in a patient’s decision-making process, such as personal recommendations versus a practice’s online reputation; and, the roles played by insurance coverage and advanced technologies. In all cases, the information will be immediately actionable and can greatly improve dental practice marketing strategies going forward.”

As an added bonus, everyone who attends this special presentation will receive a complimentary copy of the new report, “What Dental Patients Want.”
