Decembers Dental Office Manager of the Month is Christina Ball from the Arlington Dental Center in Jacksonville, FL.
Here are Christinas thoughts on being a dental office manager and marketingDental Savings Plans to patients.
Why do you enjoy about being a dental office manager?
I really love being able to help people who are usually in an uncomfortable situation feel more at ease. In addition to helping people who only come when they are in pain to see the importance of recall appointments and annual exams.
What is it about the job that is most valuable and rewarding for you?
I love to see people smile, especially when they come into the office in pain and we are able to get them comfortable and looking forward to coming back.
How has the Dentalplans.com Provider Marketing Program improved your patient base and revenue?
This program has allowed many patients who normally wouldnt be able to afford an extensive treatment plan to be able to get the care that they need. Also, patients that normally would only come when they were hurting are now scheduling regular checkups, recall appointments and exams. It has been an amazing resource.
What are some of your hobbies and interests?
I am a mother of four and we do a lot of family activities. We enjoy movie nights at home, as well as being Jacksonville Jaguar season ticket holders and going to every home game. We love the outdoors and are always on bikes or walking somewhere. And, everywhere I go I have DentalPlans.com flyers in my car!
