“Unlike the current process of requesting an appointment and awaiting a response, patients can view your real-time availabilities and book an appointment instantaneously,” says LocalMed CEO Keith English. “Similar to the way you book a flight or hotel, LocalMed brings this technology to the dental industry.”
Patients can now schedule a dental appointment without ever picking up the phone. Localmed.com lets patients find a dentist in Baton Rouge narrow the search results using filters such as insurance accepted and gender. By giving patients the ability to view and compare all availabilities, they can easily select the appointment time most convenient for them.

By integrating directly with the systems in each dental office, LocalMed is able to display live availabilities and book confirmed appointments directly into the office schedule. This capability makes it a huge benefit for both patients and dentists’ as booking a confirmed appointment anytime, especially after hours, now becomes a possibility.
