Whether you have a small or large dental practice, there are still many ways on how you can improve your practice every year. If you’re looking for new ways to improve, here are some suggestions you can try this year.
1. Partner with a reliable orthodontics laboratory company.
When looking for suppliers for top-quality orthodontic appliances, such as distalizers, retainers, aligners, space maintainers, and sleep and snoring aids, it’s important to do your research well. Look for a reliable orthodontics laboratory company and don’t settle with the first supplier you see. After all, the success of the work that you do is a combination of the patient’s own best practices and your dental supplier’s output. If you are looking for a new one, get referrals from fellow dentists to start your search, especially if you recently moved cities.
2. Offer flexible financing options for your patients.
Dental treatments can be expensive, even if your patients have dental insurance coverage. One of the many reasons people put off getting dental help is the cost of treatments involved. If you want to generate more customers, consider offering more flexible payment options for both new and old-time patients. This could be in the form of personal checks, credit line, and debit. You can even roll out a royalty program or a referral program wherein you can give a line of credit to patients who are able to give you new ones.
3. Use social media for customer service.
Many people are always on social media (even your patients) so why not utilize this new channel to your advantage? You can create a Facebook page or even a Facebook group for your patients, so you can easily inform them about new products, services, and promotions. You can also encourage them to ask questions via FB Messenger for instant responses. Marketing is important regardless of the industry after all.
Keep yourself ahead of the competition by consistently looking for new ways to improve your services, especially customer service. Try these suggestions this year and enjoy more customers for your dental practice.
