Red-Carpet Diem! Seize the Opportunity for Customer Service

Brought to you by CareCredit
Based on Donna’s books, including 501 Ways to Roll Out the Red Carpet for Your Customers, this high-energy, fun presentation is a reminder that every interaction matters. It matters to your practice, to your patients and you.

When you create a world-class experience for your patients and other customers it gives your dental practice a competitive advantage. There’s a direct link between service and sales, and every moment matters. When you roll out the red carpet for your patients and others, you tell them they are significant, important and special. It makes your customer feel good and it makes you feel good too!

Donna’s keynote is filled with touching stories of every day service heroes, examples of successful service companies, fun-filled bits, and practical ideas that can be implemented immediately. Experience the excitement of the red carpet way – where your customer matters, your work matters, and you matter!

In our evolving world of technology, EHR, and code changes, it can be overwhelming trying to keep up with it all.
