Dental Clinics

Dentistry is a very significantly large and growing industry in India with high level of competition too due to increasing dentist/population ratios and an all round need for improved dental health.

Dental Clinics not only treats patients but also addresses concerns such as customer satisfaction, paperwork processing, patient scheduling, hiring, retaining and compensating the Staff etc. To retain existing patients and generate new patients, every dental setup needs to get the most coveted and highest accreditation in the country for dental standards, which is the NABH for dental clinics. NABH accreditation is also a good source of generating unique footfalls as it can be used as a bandwagon to attract patients.
