PatientActivator®, the patient communication and online marketing software from 1-800-DENTIST®, has launched a free mobile app that gives dentists easy access to the powerful practice communication and marketing tool right from their mobile phone.

PatientActivator’s new mobile app offers the software’s most-used features, including letting dentists quickly review all scheduled appointments, follow up with patients, and review their online ratings and reviews. And the convenient help screen also makes it easy to connect to the highly trained PatientActivator team for unlimited live support. One of the biggest time-savers is a new interface for doctor-to-patient calls, which lets doctors instantly dial patients with upcoming appointments, or check in on recovering patients, with just a single tap.

“This is the future of dental marketing – being able to monitor changes to your practice schedule and real-time patient reviews,” said Jeanne Anderson, Vice President of Product for 1-800-DENTIST. “With this new app, PatientActivator is once again keeping dentists on the cutting edge of marketing technology to maximize their production in the digital age.”

The free app is available to PatientActivator members via iTunes and the Android store and places a convenient icon right on their home screen. For all other mobile phone types, there’s also a web accessible version that they can access by logging into http://m.patientactivator.com from their phone.

“Our goal has always been to help dentists keep the schedule full and boost production, without adding hours of work for doctor or staff,” Anderson said. “Our new mobile app is just one more reason every dentist should be using PatientActivator to keep their practice busy, efficient and profitable.”

In addition to these newest features, PatientActivator continues to provide its hallmark customized patient communications – including appointment confirmations, recall reminders, dormant patient reactivation and more – sent automatically via email, text and live phone call. There’s also a suite of social media and online marketing tools to help dentists gather more patient reviews, promote themselves on Facebook, increase their online presence and attract more new patients online. The service offers the industry’s best customer service (unlimited live phone support with a friendly tech team) and is one of the only patient communication services dedicated exclusively to dentistry. It’s also the only patient reminder software supported by 1?800?DENTIST. Dentists and staff can find out more about PatientActivator and the new mobile app at 1800dentist.com/MobileApp.
