Read what Jayne’s clients are saying:

“Jayne is one of the most approachable people in the dental education industry. She has a wealth of knowledge, common sense and excellent communication skills. I employed her to train my senior clinical co-ordinator seeking to transition to a practice co-ordinator role primarily based at the front desk. In order to support this transition both as an employer and a business owner, I sought Jayne’s assistance and have never regretted the decision. I am sending my other staff to her next course in Qld as I feel she eliminates the rubbish and gets straight to the core of excellent phone skills. This not only enhances the skills set within the practice, increasing morale, but endorses the growth and high-end production and customer service of our practice, Refresh Dental Spa. Thanks Jayne!”
Dr Kristina Cain, Refresh Dental Brisbane QLD

Jayne really opened our eyes to a new way of thinking about incoming calls. Our new patient numbers were dropping steadily. We are out of network with insurance so what we say to patients is critical. She gave us verbage to say and the very next month, we increased new patients by 25! We all know the challenges of training our staff ourselves. Leave it to the professional. That’s Jayne!
Tim Cashion DDS, C&C Dental Sugarland Texas

The transition from my Dental Assistant role of nine years to Front Office Coordinator was exciting but slightly daunting, Jayne gave me the confidence and guidance I needed, to settle into my new role. The training was easy to apply and hugely effective, Jayne’s empowering mentality was infectious. After each training session I gained enthusiasm and a better understanding of core knowledge required to create outstanding phone skills, transferring those new patient calls into appointments. It has been an absolute pleasure and I look forward to a refresher in the future!                                                 Amy (Practice Co-ordinator), Refresh Dental Brisbane QLD

There are many consultants out there touting their opinions on how you should handle your new patient phone calls to get more of them converted into appointments and none of them actually track and listen to your phone calls after the training to see if their opinion on how you should do it, actually works in your office. That’s why I love Jayne Bandy because she is one of the few in the world who understand that the initial training is good but what’s even better is having solid data from your office to identify what your offices exact challenges are and works tirelessly to help you create solutions for these issues. Plus, she is a big believer in getting the data you need from those telephone calls to make sure the training actually works for your offices needs. She’s a diamond in hay stack and I recommend her to all of those who get it.

Dr. Chris Phelps, Charlotte NC
