An important part of managing the front desk is confirming dental patient appointments. Although all appointments for the day have been confirmed, inevitably some patients still run late to their dental appointments. As the Receptionist, it is your job to do all that you can to get patients to arrive on time, but when they do run late, you need the ability to handle the situation. This receptionist training video provides suggestions and communication skills to handle the late patient.
