Best Online Patient Forms for Dentists — Top Platforms of 2021!
Providing patients with the ability to complete forms online before their appointment.
What are online dental patient forms?
The argument for digital dental forms
The #1 reason why every dentist needs online patient forms is patient satisfaction.
You’ve spent a lot of time carefully investing in a winning marketing strategy and your schedule is fully booked with the right new patients. Don’t throw away all this hard work with an outdated, clunky, and time-consuming new patient process.
What’s at risk? Limiting the lifetime value of that patient when they leave your practice for a dentist offering a more modern, streamlined experience.
There are many more valuable reasons to make the switch to paperless patient forms:
- Faster check-in, eliminating tedious data entry!
- Eco-friendly and saves the overhead cost of printing and scanning
- Allows you to quickly and easily make edits to patient files
- Save time and space previously used for paper filing
- HIPAA compliant
- No more interpreting poor handwriting or chasing down patients for missing information
- A first step toward modernizing your office
What to look for in a digital patient forms platform?
- Dental industry focused
- HIPAA compliant and secure
- Integrates with your practice management software
- Easily customizable to your practice needs
- Great customer support for quick troubleshooting
Of course, whenever choosing to partner with a 3rd party provider, we always recommend reading reviews from other users or getting a referral from someone you trust.
