July 10, 2012 - 1-800-DENTIST® Launches “Patient Producer”

LOS ANGELES, CA (July 10, 2012) – 1-800-DENTIST, the dental industry’s premier dental marketing company since 1986, today announced significant changes to its new patient leads program – including renaming the program “Patient Producer” and unveiling several new features to maximize dental production. The change reinforces 1‑800‑DENTIST as a total marketing partner for dentists, with multiple products to support dental practice growth.

The new Patient Producer program offers upgraded features including enhanced insurance matching, live front desk training webinars, a dedicated service representative assigned to each practice, monthly dental marketing newsletters, and an improved media mix in their $50 million annual advertising campaign. In addition, the program continues to provide its hallmark flexibility and security: Dentists control lead quantity, pay only for the leads generated and are given a 100% guarantee on actual production.  

“Today, the undisputed leader in new patient leads got even better,” explained Fred Joyal, founder of 1‑800-DENTIST. “The name Patient Producer reflects how this powerful tool helps dentists attract new patients and boost production. And our newest features are having a huge impact on conversion, show-up rates and patient loyalty.”

 Renaming their flagship product also highlights how 1-800-DENTIST, once synonymous with patient leads, has evolved into a multi-product dental marketing brand. The company also offers Patient Activator®, the award-winning patient communications and online marketing tool – with even more products planned for release in the coming months.

“Nobody knows more about helping dental practices grow than 1-800-DENTIST,” added Joyal. “With our growing family of products, we’re unquestionably the best way for dentists to acquire, manage and retain their patients year after year.”
