Position title
New Patient Coordinator
Description

A New Patient Coordinator is one of the most important positions at Orthodontic Experts. You will be greeting new patients and welcoming them to the practice. Following the office introduction and tour, you take records (pictures, x-rays, and scans) which will be utilized by the Orthodontist to set a treatment plan for the new patient. As you take records for the new patient you cover topics such as payment options and provide the guest with general information regarding insurance coverage as it relates to orthodontics. The team member will work with the Treatment Coordinator to ensure patient case acceptance by orchestrating a “warm hand-off” between the NPC and TC. This role plays a very important part of patient case acceptance. The NPC understands that the clinic must meet and exceed monthly and annual goals.
