Dealing with complaints at the front desk

Dealing with a patient who has an issue or complaint can be challenging. Front desk staff can play a crucial role in diffusing the situation if handled correctly. As potentially the first point of contact a patient has with your dental practice, knowing how to deal with these situations is an important skill. Hear about practical tips and tools you can use to manage these situations, and examples to showcase the right and wrong ways to do things.
