How Do I Get More New Patients?
Practice and DSO owners always ask, “how can we get more new patients?” After 30 years of helping dental offices and DSOs do this, we can tell you it’s straightforward.
We hear from dentists/dental managers all the time; they’ve spent countless hours and resources on various tactics that just haven’t hit the mark, looking for the fastest, the easiest, and what might be perceived as the cheapest, yet end up being a waste of time, unsuccessful – and costly, either due to resources required and wasted, or time and new patient opportunities lost.
If you’re feeling stuck or like you could be doing more to bring in new patients but don’t know where to start, we want to help. We offer a free consultation so that we can hear about your unique situation and provide tailored advice on the best way to move forward. Don’t spend another day spinning your wheels – contact us today for help getting your practice on the path to success.
There’s a proven system that our clients follow to attract more new patients and fill their schedules consistently – and it works. It’s been proven and continues to be proven. That’s why our clients are pacing 25% ahead of industry average production. And most importantly, it’s all taken care of, so you don’t have to worry about hiring another person, adding wages, or increasing overhead.
On average, for every new patient your practice misses onboarding, your practice loses around $2,000 in production. Imagine if every business day you’re open, you lost $2,000 – at minimum, that was right there for you to gain. New patients are super valuable to dental practices. They are worth investing in a proven system to get more of them – particularly if you have the capacity and open spots in the schedule. Extra new patients don’t add to overhead costs; they just add production and mostly profit.
Our system has been tested and proven by hundreds of dental offices. It’s true: it’s not for everyone. Dentists who are already on a successful path and want to be more successful definitely do the best. And this adds overall growth and security to the practice.
Why? Because they are committed to being consistent and investing in their success. They understand that nothing happens immediately and fast. Those that make “fast, quick, simple, easy” promises are just misleading – and, unfortunately, cause dental offices to waste more precious resources and lose time that could be spent gaining momentum and building practice production and security.
We offer a 100% free consultation and market area analysis – no obligation. If you’re not currently using our new patient acquisition system, book a call. Spend a few minutes finding out more about how our reliable, customized, branded solution can work to boost your new patients.
A consistent new patient strategy is important for dental offices. New patients increase production, which in turn allows dental practices to invest in better technology and continued education opportunities for the staff. Additionally, consistent new patient advertising strengthens the dental practice’s reputation within the local community. Dental practices that focus on consistent communication with new patients see an overall increase in production values.
Our system includes:
- free consultation and strategic planning sessions
- comprehensive demographic analysis to generate a precisely targeted mailing list of households most likely to respond to your practice, including drive time, buying preferences, existing market share, competitors, and more
- access to customized content unique to your practice in a large, four-page newsletter format, the most trusted form of advertising, which DIFFERENTIATES YOUR PRACTICE from every other in your community
- campaign management, your “marketing CEO,” who takes care of creative and deployment and coaches on tactics, messaging, and coaches your team to convert more calls
- campaign ROI reporting, providing visible results right now to the penny patients spend in production from your campaign
- joining hundreds of other successful dental teams and benefiting from the insights gained from industry knowledge and experience.
Any business will tell you that customer acquisition is important. But in the dental industry, it’s especially crucial to keep up a consistent stream of new patients. Even if your retention rate is strong, if you’re not focused on acquiring new patients, your practice’s revenue will eventually stagnate or even decline. This flattening of revenue can be imperceptible at first, but over time the effects will pick up speed – like a stone rolling downhill. That’s why it’s essential to always keep new patient acquisition in your marketing plan. Consistent communication with your community will make a big difference in keeping your practice thriving for years to come.
So, if you’re looking for a fast cure to generate new patients, we hate to break it to you – but that doesn’t exist. However, implementing the systems and strategies we’ve outlined in this blog post is an easy way to get on track for 2022 and beyond.
