6 Text Message Templates for Doctors & Dentists

The Value of Text Message Reminders

People are already on their phones several hours a day. So, text message reminders only make sense. And the statistics bear this out.

Over 95% of Americans use text messaging. One-third of people prefer text reminders to e-mail, phone, and direct mail. And the younger they are, the more they prefer text messages to other forms of communication. This means that even if all your clients don’t prefer it now, soon most of them will.

But it’s not just about preferences. Text messages are less intrusive, require less time to respond, and can be automated. This makes them a great way to streamline your appointment procedure.

So, if you aren’t already using text message reminders with your patients, then you’re missing out on an opportunity to build trust with your clientele, minimize late clients and no-shows, and keep your business running smoothly.
