Dr. Dan Bills: Virtual Consults, Systems And Practice Efficiencies

The Orthopreneurs Podcast

Before the pandemic, virtual orthodontic consults were mainly viewed as more of a marketing gimmick to get new patients to our chairs.

Fast forward to a post-pandemic world, virtual consults are now a convenient tool that every practice should provide potential new patients and existing patients.

Virtual visits cannot replace in-office appointments, but they surely enhance the experience for both patients and doctors.

For Orthodontists, it helps us deliver quality and efficient care in a convenient manner. It opens up the possibilities of even greater efficiencies in our practices by opening up new scheduling slots. 

In this episode, I am joined by Dr. Dan Bills, who runs a state-of-the-art practice with 3 locations in Southern New Jersey. We chat about virtual consults and how to increase efficiencies in orthodontic practices.

In addition, Dr. Bills is a passionate educator and offers an in-house course where you get to see compact systems in action, virtual orthodontic visit systems, new patient processes, modern marketing, and tech-driven office design.
