Dr. DiTolla’s Clinical Tips – Kick Your Apps® DDS App
Chairside Magazine: Volume 7, Issue 3
It took a dentist, Dr. Bob Marcus, to realize how cool it would be for dentists to have an app for their dental office. Patients can get directions, call the office and request appointments through the app. The “Refer A Friend” button sends an email with your office info to the patient’s friend with less than 10 seconds of effort. Another page has maps, hours and services. There is even a before-and-after photo gallery tab. The killer feature, however, is the “Emergency” button prominently featured in the bottom row. With a touch of a button, the patient can reach you or your answering service any time they have an emergency. It shows that you walk the talk and are serious about treating patients right. It’s your chance to look cutting-edge and caring at the same time. Bob’s company is called Kick Your Apps and charges a one-time fee of $899 to set up your app. The company is offering a $50 discount to anyone who enters the promo code: Glidewell. And even though I am all Mac, all the time, I would be remiss if I did not mention that it is available for Android and Blackberry phones as well.
