Amp Up Your New Patient Flow
Proven way to get more new patients
You want to increase practice production. You definitely don't want your practice to plateau. You want a raise and your team all want raises. That means you and your team need to work together to increase your new patient flow – exceeding the number of patients that cancel, lapse or leave.
Every dental office loses 15-20% of their patient base each year. This can't be avoided. People age, they change jobs, they move. Then there are the patients that leave on purpose, for reasons you may never really understand. It happens to every office. Perhaps the other 30 dental offices in your area are also feeling the pinch and they've increased their marketing efforts. Has any of this affected your practice yet?
We can help you identify your current trajectory, and show you how to strategically add more new patients to your practice.
Let's say you have 2000 active patients.
Your team is doing a great job holding attrition at bay. We'll assume you're ONLY losing 20% per year = 400 patients.
That's over 30 patients per month. Lost.
On the other hand, the practice is generating a nice flow of 25 new-patients per month per doctor. Your front desk team feels good. They're hitting their targets. Yet, that leaves your practice with an overall deficit of 5 patients/month. This scenario will have the practice declining by 60 patients per year ... year after year. This is a very real scenario, happening to a high percentage of dentists across the country.
This doesn't have to be your dental practice.
