Conversational Intelligence is changing the dental industry. Learn more about how Peerlogic Conversational AI is helping front office teams schedule more appointments.

First, if you’re new to the Peerlogic blog we recommend reading The Complete Guide to Conversational AI, (Part 1). In this post, we introduced conversational intelligence, including different types of conversational AI being used in dental.

We also discussed how it’s changing the way front office teams work by increasing scheduled appointments and enhancing team communications.

In part two, we’re diving into more specifics. You’ll find real examples along with best practices on applying conversational intelligence to grow your practice.

What’s an Example of How I Can Use Peerlogic To Grow My Practice?

Here’s an example. Let’s say you received 20 calls between the close of business on Monday, and the start of business on Tuesday. One of these calls is indicating an emergency situation, two calls are existing patients wishing to reschedule, four calls are indicating a new patient (have never been to your office), four calls are existing patients wanting to schedule an appointment, and three calls are from sales or vendors.

How do you know which calls to prioritize? Without the right tools in place, you don’t know unless you listen to each call first. Then, you must prioritize each call, filtering out patient or potential new patient calls from vendors, sales, or other types of non-revenue generating calls. 

This process takes up a lot of your time, which is a pain point you experience nearly everyday.

The good news is, there’s a solution. With Peerlogic, you can quickly identify which calls to prioritize. Making your call back process more efficient is that simple. Peerlogic even integrates with your existing dental practice management software or VoIP phone system.


How Does Artificial Intelligence Assist in Dental Phone Conversations?

Dental phone conversations can be difficult for human beings. We have many nuances and different ways of saying the same thing. But with AI assistants, sales conversations are easier and more successful.

The study shows that AI assistants can increase the number of sales calls by up to 10%. In addition, they can also increase the amount of potential patients who are interested in scheduling an appointment by up to 20%.

Why Dental, and Why Now?

AI is being used in the dental industry to assist sales conversations with patient phone calls.

Front office teams are able to focus on more complex tasks while AI handles the routine ones. 

This frees up time for office managers and other front office representatives to answer more calls, prioritize call backs, and ultimately book more daily appointments.

How Have Dental Phone Calls Changed Since 2020?

Since the start of the pandemic in 2020, phone calls to dental practices in the USA have continued to increase. This key insight is an opportunity for dental practices to review one of the most important aspects of the patient journey process. Understanding how patient phone calls are processed is crucial to making strategic changes that impact business growth.
