July 16, 2013 - PatientActivator Offers a “Rescue Plan” for Dentists Who Demand Better Patient Communication Software

LOS ANGELES, CA (July 16, 2013) – PatientActivator®, the award-winning patient communication software from 1-800-DENTIST®, is offering a free Trade Up Program to rescue dentists trapped in a contract with a more expensive service. Practices who switch to PatientActivator can now use the software at no cost until their current contract expires.

The Trade Up Program comes in response to feedback from doctors and office managers that their current patient communication software is under-performing and/or providing poor customer service – but that long-term contracts are holding them captive. Now these practices can seamlessly transition to PatientActivator with no interruption in service and with no setup fee. Once their old contract expires, practices can continue on the program for only $199/month – a fraction of industry average price.

“We want to help dental practices break free of any program that is over-charging them and not providing top-level service,” said Michael Turner, CEO of 1-800-DENTIST. “That’s why we invite every practice to trade up to PatientActivator to get better features and better service – and not pay anything upfront.”

In addition to PatientActivator’s hallmark patient communications, including customized appointment reminders sent automatically via email, text and live phone call, the software boasts a suite of social media and online marketing tools to help dentists gather more patient reviews, promote themselves on Facebook, increase their online presence and attract more new patients online. PatientActivator offers unlimited live phone support with a friendly tech team and is one of the only patient communication services dedicated exclusively to dentistry. It’s also the only patient reminder software supported by 1‑800‑DENTIST, the nation’s premier dental marketing company since 1986.  

“PatientActivator was created specifically for dentists by a marketing team that understands how a dental practice works,” Turner added. “We walk the practice through set up, training and unlimited support calls – and now with our Trade Up program, this is the perfect time to make the switch.”
