February 4, 2014 - Patterson Dental Partners with Futuredontics to Help Dentists Reactivate Dormant Patients

LOS ANGELES, CA (February 4, 2014) – Futuredontics, parent company of 1-800-DENTIST and the nation’s leading dental marketing company, announced a new strategic partnership with Patterson Dental to exclusively offer the dormant patient reactivation service, ReActivation Pro. This partnership helps dentists reclaim the thousands of dollars in production sitting in their inactive files. 

ReActivation Pro helps dental practices reactivate their dormant patients by having highly trained U.S.-based operators call dormant patients and appoint them. The calls are placed in the evening when there is a higher chance of reaching patients at home. The operators are calling on behalf of the dental practice, so the patient experience is completely seamless. Best of all, practices are guaranteed 7 appointments per month. 

“We are incredibly excited about this partnership,” said Michael Turner, CEO of Futuredontics. “Patterson Dental provides its clients with the best products and services in the dental industry and ReActivation Pro is no exception.”

At the end of each month, dentists will receive a series of detailed reports containing a list of all new appointments and summaries of all calls including feedback on why some patients are leaving the practice or not accepting treatment. These reports provide valuable market research data that can influence practice marketing decisions moving forward.

“ReActivation Pro is going to revolutionize dormant patient reactivation,” said Paul Guggenheim, President of Patterson Dental Supply, Inc. “In most dental practices, 20 percent of patients are currently dormant. Reactivating even a percentage of these will result in reclaiming thousands of dollars in lost production and practice profitability.”

Patterson dentists can find out more about ReActivation Pro and Futuredontics’ other dental marketing products by visiting or by calling their Patterson representative.
