Top Reasons For Partnering With Patient News:

“I have a very loyal patient base, but I felt like I needed to do more. I felt like it was time to grow. Plus, I was bringing a new associate on board. We needed to bring new patients into the practice.” – Dr. Hazel Glasper

1st year results with Patient News:

  1. $500,000 increase in practice production
  2. 10:1 return on investment

How Patient News Marketing & Technology Helped:

  1. I was introduced to the technology side of Patient News. My account manager could tell me how many phone calls came in, how many of the patients were converted during those phone calls, and how successful my practice was compared to the industry average. Having my metrics discussed with me every month, or anytime I need it, opened my eyes to something that made Patient News invaluable to me.
  2. The data-driven technology that’s included with Patient News is a wonderful thing. It’s amazing.
  3. Being able to listen to the phone calls and be coached on better scripting for the front desk has been a game changer.
  4. I have doubled the amount of patients I see through the new-patient acquisition program [direct mail newsletters].
  5. I love the content in my newsletters. It was more in line with my brand. I have a practice that’s comprehensive. I needed marketing that would draw the patient who was a bit more discerning, maybe who has a higher dental IQ, or one I could educate to have a higher dental IQ.
  6. Education is critical to practicing comprehensive dentistry. It’s one of the reasons why I have a great deal of respect for Patient News. They explain things you can improve or might not have noticed with the data to back that up, and with ways to help you. It made me realize that I’m not in it alone. We’re in this together and it’s been amazing.
  7. Now I realize how much more I need to learn about my practice, and I know how to address challenges and overcome them.
  8. My experience working with Patient News has been better than I could have imagined.

Practice Focus:

PPO/FFS general dentistry practice, with big focus on customer service and providing a welcoming environment for patients. There is a smaller emphasis on cosmetic and implant dentistry. All general services are provided.

Practice Challenge & Goals When Patient News Hired

  1. Practice production more than doubled
  2. Patient-of-record numbers more than doubled
  3. Monthly new-patient average numbers have increased by 900%.

1st year results with Patient News

Our biggest challenge was getting our name out there so patients were aware that we were in the neighborhood. We also really needed to increase our new- patient flow. Before we started with Patient News, we were seeing 10-20 new patients a month, which was not enough to grow the practice.

How Patient News Marketing & Technology Helped:

  1. Practice ZEBRA™ is amazing. With this dashboard, you know everything that’s going on with your practice marketing, and way more than you even have time to look at. It’s incredible. I have worked with a lot of companies that didn’t even have 10% of the stats Patient News gives you.
  2. Call Tracking & Call Scoring helps to get the calls coming in, and also (and just as important), Patient News trained us on how to convert calls.
  3. Phone Power Video Training & Scripts were crucial and invaluable and training helped us excel at converting calls – it’s greatly increased..
  4. Demographic Analysis & List Development helped us target quality patients who usually walk in with their flyers in hand (they definitely keep them!). The new patients are very high-quality who refer other quality patients. Most have not seen a dentist in quite some time.
  5. The best thing about working with Patient News is that they have the best customer service of any marketing company, hands down. They are incredibly thorough.
  6. Our best tip to book more new-patient appointments is to focus on the problem or concern, assure patients that they are in good hands, and get them in the door right away.
  7. The offers patients have responded to most are no-charge consults.

If you are looking to grow your practice with new patients who will be long-term quality patients, I can’t imagine a better marketing strategy than one from Patient News. There’s no way you will not win.

“I recommend you try Patient News if you want to grow your practice with quality patients and an increased new-patient count. They over-deliver on the results.”

New Patient Numbers

Month 0 – 12
Month 1 – 22
Month 2 – 40
Month 3 – 50
Month 6 – 70
Month 14 – We doubled newsletter distribution & saw 90 new patients!

The Fun Stuff

    1. The best thing I ever purchased for the practice is my intraoral camera.
    2. The biggest influence on my decision to become a dentist was that I had a great pediatric dentist when I was a kid. Also, I had close friends in college who were pre-dental.
    3. The best thing about being a dentist is being able to make a positive change in someone’s life and see their confidence improve.
    4. The worst thing about being a dentist is back strain.
    5. Younger dentists today should focus on mastering their craft. Take CE on full-mouth reconstruction, occlusion, implants, etc. Master your skills so you can be the best, most-productive dentist possible for your career and your patients.
    6. The last books I read were How To Win Friends And Influence People; The Personal MBA; Dentistry’s Business Secrets; Change Your Questions, Change Your Life; Everything is Marketing.
    7. The CE courses I took in 2017 and 2018 were the Misch Surgical Implant Program, Implant Complications, Clinical Master Ultimate Occlusion, Live Aesthetics in the Op, Oral Sedation Implant Seminars, business masters course, Biohorizons Teeth Express.
    8. When not practicing dentistry, I love to relax and fish on my boat!

In Closing

The investments I’ve made that pay the most have been CE and good marketing that gets patients to call to your practice. So far, hands down, the Patient News newsletters have provided the best results – a phenomenal way to build your patient base and bring quality new patients in the door.

Practice Focus:

Village Green Dental has a reputation for delivering its patients exceptional customer service and conveniences that make their lives easier. It has served the communities of Aurora and Naperville, IL since 1983.

Why I Partnered With Patient News:

“We were getting to a point in our practice where we didn’t know what more to do, and we weren’t sure what was working and what wasn’t. Then came Patient News & Practice ZEBRA™ with marketing techniques that would propel us into the future.” – Dr. Jason Monroe

With Practice ZEBRA, results are fully visible. Since starting:

  1. Added almost 3,000 new patients – including 400 reactivated
  2. 135% increase in website traffic
  3. Increased production by 120%
  4. Increased new-patient production by $100,000/month
  5. Improved patient scheduling by 150%

How Patient News Marketing & Technology Helped:

  1. The one thing that stands out the most about Patient News is the quality of the product. It’s very intentional. It does everything I want it to do all in one place.
  2. Practice ZEBRA allowed us to put our emphasis and energy in the right places. WOW does it deliver. There are so many useful tools. There is no comparison. It’s provided the best opportunity to evaluate what marketing techniques were working and which ones weren’t. Now we utilize marketing more efficiently than ever before.
  3. Practice ZEBRA put everything in one place and allowed us to generate the results we felt we deserved.
  4. I cannot believe how much we’ve improved our online presence with WebLift™. We were amazed. We now find that’s one of the number-one ways people find out who we are.
  5. One of our favorite marketing solutions is our newsletter. It’s done so beautifully. We were pleasantly surprised with our increase in new-patient flow.
  6. You can’t just get the phone to ring. You have to make the right first impression. With Phone Power training, we’ve converted more leads than ever.
  7. Patient News blew our previous marketing campaigns out of the water. Our current year is around $4 million in production and $5 million is our goal.

Practice Background:

We are truly a family practice in the way we function internally and how we view and treat our patients. With our son ready to join our practice we wanted to create growth through new-patient acquisition and improving communication and follow through with our existing patients, so we called Patient News.

Outstanding Practice Results:

Since I started working with Patient News in 2015, practice revenue has increased by 30%, our new patients per month have increased from 22 to 39 each month, and our patients-of-record have increased by 1,125. Our hygiene team is thrilled to have a fuller schedule, we have increased website views, and our new patients are referring friends and family.

Advice to other dentists & their teams…

  1. The offer that really drives new-patient calls is our New Patient $99 Cleaning Special
  2. Our #1 tip to book more new-patient appointments is to ask if anyone else in the family needs an appointment.
  3. Be sure to listen to ALL calls that come in and review with staff members for “positive” and “needs improvement”.
  4. The Marketing Performance Dashboard has helped us improve our front desk scheduling of new patients.
  5. Insurance can be tricky so we offer complimentary benefit checks and call new patients back with information.
  6. Our internal patients LOVE the Patient Newsletter.
  7. Be sure to follow the guidelines Patient News gives you for your front desk in order to book more patients.

Outstanding Practice Results:

  1. Revenue has more than tripled
  2. Monthly new patients have doubled
  3. Year-after-year practice growth

Advice to other dentists & their teams…

Our top tips to book more new patient appointments are (1) be friendly, helpful, answer questions concisely, and offer an appointment asap and (2) never put up barriers.

The best call-handling script advice is if a caller’s main concern is insurance, offer to do a complimentary benefits check.

The offer that really drives new patient calls is a FREE consultation.

The best 2 things I have purchased for my practice are actually 4 things … Diagnodent™, intraoral cameras, digital x-rays, and a cone beam CT scanner.

What makes our practices unique  is that we view patients like friends and family and treat them as such. We ensure the level of care our patients receive – clinical and emotional – far exceeds their expectations. We offer clinical excellence, but the way we make a patient feel makes a lasting impact on them. We take the time to listen.

We hired Patient News because after many years in business, new patients still said that they had no idea we were here. We wanted to make sure everyone knew we existed.

The best piece of advice I can share about marketing your dental practice is don’t worry about what other people think of your marketing. Just do it.

I recommend you try Patient News if you want your phone to ring more.

About Dr. Nadeau

  1. The biggest influence on my decision to become a dentist were my dental experiences when I was a child.
  2. The best thing about being a dentist being my own boss, providing my team with a great work environment, and caring for people … possibly even changing a patient’s life. The worst thing is that sometimes I care more about my patient’s teeth than they do.
  3. Younger dentists today should take business classes. Business knowledge is essential to practice ownership. Also, make sure dentistry is really what you want to do. Many dentists end up unhappy because they didn’t anticipate the stress.
  4. I support my community by trying to never say “no” when a patient asks me for sponsorship. This year, our local donations included cancer fund raisers, athletic competitions, the fire department, and a day of free dentistry.
  5. The last books I read were Quiet and The Ice Twins
  6. When not practicing dentistry, I love family time, being active, and traveling.

Advice to other dentists & their teams…

The best thing about working with Patient News is that they have experience and go to any length for us. Content, changes, new ideas, choosing new routes, times, area … the community exposure is continually there and our results have always been above a very satisfying number

Our number-one tip to book more new patients appointments is to be consistent with advertising. Let people see that you are not just fishing, but you’re there to service, educate, give value, that you’re serious about treating them. Then fulfill what you promise.

My best piece of marketing advice is to do demographic reports (PN will take care of this for you) and constantly review your targeting. We cover a wide range of people and incomes, and we accept all. We don’t do much advertising outside of Patient News; we don’t see the need. Our exposure is continual. In addition, our staff reads every newsletter – they are on top of it – and we have monthly meetings to review it.

I recommend you try Patient News – In 20+ years, we have sent more than ½ million flyers to the same area. Patients look forward to each new newsletter. We have built a relationship with our community and as we grew, we gave patients service who cared about results. We were rewarded. Don’t just go for the money. Do the service and the money will come.

  2. The best thing about being a dentist is that I can create beautiful smiles.
  3. The worst thing about being a dentist? There’s no such thing.
  4. Younger dentists today should listen to their patients’ needs and go from there.
  5. What makes our practice unique is our motto: treat the patient the way you want to be treated. With respect, professionalism, and punctuality.
  6. Accept emergencies asap no matter the business of the day, whether they’re patients-of-record or walk-ins.

Advice to other dentists & their teams…

The best thing about working with Patient News is that the staff is accommodating and knowledgeable about how to best market my practice. The quality of the newsletters is fantastic and I am proud to have it associated with my practice.

Our number-one tip to book more new patient appointments is to keep the phone calls short. Rather than answering too many questions on the phone, the focus for each call is to get the new patient in for their appointment.

The offer patients have responded to most is our New Patient Special.

The best things I have purchased for my practices are intraoral cameras and big-screen TVs for each exam room.

What makes our practices unique is our dedication to ultimate patient care.

The reason we decided to hire Patient News was to get more new patients. The staff is great and the products are of great quality.
