|Welcome to How to Handle New Patient Calls. During this course, you will develop your telephone skills to include techniques for answering various types of new patient calls. New patient calls have an entire series dedicated to them because of the impact they have on the growth of your office. This portion of your dental front office receptionist training will navigate through five types of new patient calls and how to handle each. Remember, the phone is the lifeline to the dental office and how it is handled is a direct reflection on not only the new patient’s first impression of the office but also the growth of your new patient numbers.
