We understand that you are your customer's first line of tech-defense, and as such, you'll be answering the majority of questions for our products. To make sure that you're armed with the answers you need, you'll receive full assistance from our training team in setting up your first installation, and as much continuing support as you need. In addition, you'll receive an in-house copy of our products for you to learn and use in your own business.
As a partner, you'll find that our products dovetail nicely with your existing monthly service plans. Our software is reasonably priced, and sold on a per-user or per-station basis. You receive a substantial discount for each customer license that you sell, and at the same time are free to choose the price point that suits you. To keep the billing aspect simple, we only charge you once per month for the total customer licenses you have installed. Your discount rate is determined by the role(s) that you take on. For instance, if you'd prefer to have our team do training for you, we can do that!

Our mission at AppleButter is simple: to make the lives of the people and businesses who use our software easier by maximizing their efficiency. We love working with people and value our mutual business relationships. Recently, we spent some time brainstorming ways to deepen those relationships. Our Referral Partner program was one of those ideas.
Why would you want to be a Referral Partner? It is a symbiotic relationship between you and AppleButter: you help us generate leads and you earn a profit from each lead that turns into a sale. AppleButter products also provide huge benefits to your clients - Our products are made with the sole purpose of maximizing an office’s efficiency, helping the office to run on-time or ahead of schedule and saving them money in the process.
The Referral Partner Program can be broken down into three steps.
Step 1: The Referral Partner goes about their normal business. The only difference is that the Referral Partner is identifying clients that may benefit from AppleButter products. They determine if those clients might be interested in our products and send us the leads.
Step 2: AppleButter contacts the leads and handles the entire purchase process.
Step 3: The Referral Partner is paid a commission for each purchase from the leads they referred.
That’s it! Referral partners do not handle product support or installations, and are not responsible for billing. In fact, aside from lead generation, the only other thing our referral partners are responsible for is depositing the checks the AppleButter sends them when a lead is converted to a sale.

One of the biggest downfalls between a practice and its patients is with time management. Long patient wait times can make a patient reconsider visiting your practice and patient/doctor trust can become strained. Here are a few ways your practice can cut down on wait times:
1. Utilize Patient Portals
Allow patients to check-in before they arrive via an online patient portal. These systems allow a patient to update their insurance information, fill out needed paperwork, and receive any updates regarding appointments or your practice in real time. Eliminating the in-person check-in process for the majority of patients will allow you to run a few minutes early.
2. Offer Telemedicine
Do you have patients that don’t necessarily need to be seen in-office? In some states, your practice might use HIPPA-compliant video-conferencing tools to handle less-critical patients. This can allow doctors to quickly access the patient and offer their expertise all while taking little time away from other patients.
3. Use a Live Queue App
A queue app is used to allow patients to see where they fall in “line” and how long their wait is. This allows them to leave the office or show up right when they would be called back. If used in conjunction with a patient portal, many patients might only see the exam room.
4. Update and Enforce your Policies
If you have a problem with late-arriving patients, then you should enforce a strict late-arrival policy. Late-arrivals impede on a practice’s workflow for the remainder of the work day. Implement a clear policy that late-arrivals must reschedule their appointment after a set amount of time past their scheduled appointment time.
5. Secure Messaging System
According to the PEW Research center, 97% of Americans are using text messaging on their smartphones. 64% of Americans also prefer texting over a phone call. A large portion of younger patients also do not check their voicemails. A text message is much faster than a phone call. Your office can text about appointment reminders, test results, and answer simple questions that the patient may have.
Every year the American Dental Association celebrates National Children’s Dental Health Month (NCDHM) during February. The goal is to teach the public about the importance of oral health, especially during early childhood. The ADA has been observing NCDHM since 1941 and many offices take full advantage of its marketing potential. Here are a few ways how you can celebrate the month: Utilize the ADA’s Free Resources In observation of NCDHM, the ADA provides free resources for dental practices, schools, and other local organizations to use. You can print activity sheets for kids to use while in the waiting area, print the official poster for NCDHM to hang in your office, and use the ADA’s guides on how to publicize your office. The website is an excellent source for preparing for NCDHM and for the rest of the year as well. Reach Out to Local Schools The...
1. Make Your Practice Unique. Your practice’s success in your local area can come down to what sets you apart from other businesses. You’ll need to create a marketing plan that shows potential patients what makes you unique. The distinct perspective that you offer should be what you use in all your advertising campaigns. Build on that uniqueness through social media campaigns, paid advertisements, brochures, postcards, and email newsletters. 2. Create an Email List. Nearly everyone has an email address. When a new patient comes to your office require them to give an email address (yes, we dared to say “REQUIRE”). You can use emails to tell them about office news, to send out newsletters, and to give them appointment reminders. Email lists will become a vital tool in your marketing plan.. 3. Improve Office Efficiency When patients are forced to wait a long in the waiting area or...
