September 18, 2013 - PatientActivator Debuts Newly Designed User Dashboard

LOS ANGELES, CA (September 18, 2013) – PatientActivator®, the award-winning patient communication and online marketing software from 1-800-DENTIST®, has launched a new user dashboard for dental practices. The redesigned dashboard streamlines automated appointment reminders and easy tools for patient reviews, marketing and social media. 

The dashboard was redesigned based on feedback from real dental practices to highlight the high-powered features they use most. It boasts a sleek new look, at-a-glance information about the day’s appointment confirmation status, rotating helpful hints, and daily notification of missing information. The most popular features are divided into four easy to navigate categories: Automated Appointment Reminders, Reputation & Reviews, Marketing & Promotions and Social Media.

“The best just got better with the release of the new PatientActivator dashboard,” said Michael Turner, CEO of 1-800-DENTIST. “We talked to office managers, dentists and front office staff to find out what we could do to simplify their lives. Then we took all that feedback and developed the new PatientActivator dashboard. It offers a clear and concise means to reach patients via appointment reminders, marketing campaigns or even social media.”

While the dashboard has a new look, it also continues to support PatientActivator’s hallmark features that help practices attract new patients, reduce no-shows, tighten recall, automate patient communications, boost online reputation and simplify Facebook. It also still offers the industry’s best customer service (unlimited live phone support with a friendly tech team) and is one of the only patient communication services dedicated exclusively to dentistry.

“The way dental practices reach out to patients is constantly evolving,” said Michael Turner, CEO of 1-800-DENTIST. “It makes sense that the tools dental practices use to reach out to their patients should evolve as well. PatientActivator’s exciting new design makes it easier than ever for dental practices to see at a glance how many appointments they have each day, which patients have confirmed, how appointment reminders were sent and what information is missing from a patient’s profile.”

The new dashboard will be debuting at national tradeshows including the American Association of Dental Office Managers (AADOM), the American Dental Association (ADA) and the Greater New York Dental Meeting (GNYDM). Dentists and staff can find out more about PatientActivator by calling 1-877-906-9363.
