Join Dr. Dan Bills for this Complimentary Business of Orthodontics webinar, Virtual Insanity! Virtual Orthodontic Visits Before, During, and After a Global Pandemic — As with many practices, Dr. Dan Bills was forced to develop a complete virtual treatment platform to continue to manage patients’ treatment during mandated closure during the pandemic. Serendipitously, Dr. Bills and his team learned a lot about the potential for virtual visits to enhance (not replace) the in-office patient experience to help deliver quality orthodontic care in an effective, efficient, and convenient manner — a mindset change which wouldn't have been explored pre-pandemic. Learning Objectives:
Discuss the concept of virtual orthodontic consultations as a tool for quality orthodontic offices to provide the convenience that some patients are craving. (Pre-Pandemic Mindset)
Explain in detail a Virtual Treatment Platform that was developed in order to manage patients’ treatment during mandated closure (Pandemic Mindset)
Explore what this forced workflow change has taught us about the perceptions and logistics of virtual visits, and how we have successfully utilized them to improve our practice now that we are back in the office treating patients (Post-Pandemic Mindset)
