Portland, OR (PRWEB) October 31, 2013
DentalOptimizer.com recently announced the release of a new tool that will help Dentists streamline communication with potential patients. The Patient Generator Application coordinates with all of a dentist's web marketing vehicles to clarify the options available to people seeking a dentist.
"We're having great success with The Dental Optimizer," according to Healthygrid's Sam Dyer. "The patients like it because they can quickly access information and reviews about local dentists and the dentists like it because they can establish trust with new patients while removing some of the barriers to scheduling an appointment." Dyer acknowledges that some dentists want to move even more quickly and some want to eliminate the appearance of a third party between their practice and the new patients. "With the Patient Generator Application you don't even need to have a Dental Optimizer profile," he explains.
The Patient Generator Application is a widget that dentists can embed on any of their web assets. The code can be placed to appear on a variety of social media pages, a website, even on a Dental Optimizer profile. The Patient Generator asks for basic patient information and then prompts them to answer some health profile questions. One of the features is the Gum Disease Risk Assessment in which the patient answers questions about their condition and routines. There's a similar survey for Cavity Risk Assessment. In both cases the information is forwarded to the sponsoring dentist's email where the staff can contact the patient to make an appointment.
Other features include a Cost Calculator, Dental Directory, and even a Drug Directory to help people find the information they need. Each of these features leads to a prompt to contact the dentist’s office for an appointment. Every practice that chooses to take advantage of the Patient Generator Application has the flexibility to customize which applications they want to include. For example, many dentist will choose to omit the Dental Directory, which is a key feature for dental associations and groups.
The Patient Generator appears on a practice's page as a small square on the side and can also be embedded into the page for a more continuous look. Patients are not obligated to fill it out or participate but for those seeking a new dentist the features provide the appeal of more information. Dentists can place the Patient Generator Application on their website, their Facebook page, their Twitter page, even on their Dental Optimizer page. It's designed to create the simplest path for patients to contact the dentist. If a patient does take the time to fill out the assessment then the dentist benefits by receiving that additional information when the patient submits an email for an appointment.
The Patient Generator Application is designed to be fully responsive. This means it’s designed to work on all mobile devices as well so when someone is searching with a different screen size the application modifies so patients can easily use it to contact the practice. According to Dyer, the response has been growing for many dentists. "The most common feedback we've been hearing has been positive. Dentists like receiving the appointment requests by email with the detailed assessments. Patients like being able to contact the dentist when they're thinking about it rather than waiting to call during business hours."
The Patient Generator Application is ready for immediate use by dentists interested in credible lead generation and can be customized to reflect the unique characteristics and goals of each practice. It is available for display at http://www.dentaloptimizer.com/patient-generator/.
