3 Types of VoIP for Top Performing Dentists and Dental Practice Owners

While VoIP is definitely the future of business telephone systems, there are some specific considerations that every dentist should pay close attention to.

I like to break it down into three categories. They all have their advantages but each might not be right for every situation.

Here are the three types of VoIP that top performing dental practice owners consider when they are looking for a new phone system.

  • The Cable Company
  • Integrated VoIP
  • White Label VoIP

What are the Advantages of VoIP?

 As a small- to medium-sized dental practice, you need to do everything that you can to keep costs down. If you’re still using traditional phone systems as your sole communication solution, a much more affordable VoIP solution is something you should consider. 

Here's why:

  • Plenty of useful features
  • Efficient use of bandwidth
  • Enhanced flexibility
  • Real-time fax transmission
  • Better connectivity
  • Cost effective

Here's what you should look out for in a VoIP Provider:

  • Total cost of ownership
  • Customer service
  • Features
    • Call recording
    • Voicemail transcription
    • Text messaging

DPC Technology is amazing! At first I was a little skeptical about the Complete Care Program, but it has turned out to be a huge benefit to our office. Whenever we have a problem, DPC Technology is only a phone call away. Sometimes they have to come into the office, but many times they can log in remotely and fix the problem.

Whenever there is any new issue regarding computer security, Clay is always one step ahead of the game. Let's face it, no one can run their business without their computers, so why would you risk not having the best computer people in town on your team.
