When a patient fails to show up for a scheduled appointment, the dentist loses the opportunity to provide a service and generate revenue during their time slot. This can significantly impact the practice's financial performance, especially if it occurs regularly.
Preparing for a patient appointment involves allocating staff, equipment, and other resources. If a patient doesn't show up, resources go unused, resulting in wasted costs for the practice.
Dental practices have fixed costs regardless of whether a patient shows up – including rent, utilities, salaries, and other overhead. When a patient doesn't show for their appointment, these costs remain, but the practice's ability to cover them through generated revenue decreases.
No-shows disrupt a dental practice's schedule and create gaps in the dentist's workflow. This can lead to inefficiencies, increased stress, and potential delays for other patients who may have been waiting for an appointment.
To lessen the impact of no-show patients, dental practices implement various strategies. Common approaches include appointment reminders via phone, email, or text, implementing cancellation policies that include fees for no-shows or late cancellations, and overbooking to account for potential cancellations.
Another way to lessen the chance of no-shows is to communicate your no-show & late cancellation policies to patients as they wait on hold. Visit www.OnHold.com/Dental or call 1-888-321-8477 for information.

Dr. Cuspid’s Dental Music On Hold Messaging
There was a dentist, we'll call him Dr. Cuspid, who was having trouble keeping his patients entertained while they were on hold. He tried everything from playing elevator music to reciting dental hygiene facts, but nothing seemed to work. One day, while he was waiting on hold for his doctor, he heard a hilarious joke on the office’s on hold message. That's when it hit him – he needed to liven up his on hold messaging with some humor!
So, Dr. Cuspid hired a professional on hold studio to create a custom dental on hold program with a few jokes and one-liners to play for his patients while they waited on hold. And boy, did it work! Patients would call just to listen to the jokes and were even disappointed when they were let off hold too quickly.
Dr. Cuspid was so happy with the success of his new on hold messaging that he started recommending it to other dentists in his network. More importantly, his patients were so impressed, they referred Dr. Cuspid to all their friends.
While this, of course, is not a true story (though it could be!), and we realize humor may not be the appropriate messaging for some industries, music on hold messaging doesn’t have to be dull. Our professional audio team will create a custom music on hold program that reflects your business, and keeps your callers engaged.
