Alexander Tolmeijer (Netherlands)

Time: 16:30 - 17:30
Room: DALI (PV5)
Language: English
Chair(s): Alejandro López-Quiroga (Spain)

Learning Objectives

  • > What are the scheduling principles for a productive and stress free day
  • > Block schedule and pre-blocking: What are the best practices
  • > Language and behaviour of the front office to create the ideal day
  • > How the dentist can ruin the scheduling ability of the front office
  • > Follow-up on non-scheduled patients


Managing the schedule in the dental practice is often neglected. By scheduling by design, the dentist can create a more stress free and productive day. The lecture will show a step by step approach to get an effective schedule. The front office will also benefit from a well-designed schedule. The rush hours are more predictable and it will be easier for the dentist to work on time. The lecture will discuss the use of pre-blocking, high energy blocks and quick call lists. Conversation techniques used by the reception and the dentist are also important to get the patient at the ideal time for the practice.
