Ms. Jones came for her first appointment with you. She filled out the forms and waited to be seated. Your assistant took her back to an operatory and took a full set of x-rays. You waltz in and greeted Ms. Jones making all the necessary pleasantries. You reviewed her x-rays and intelligently explained to her what was wrong with her teeth. At the end of the appointment Ms. Jones paid her bill, but refused to schedule her next appointment using the excuse she would have to check her calendar then call. You just chased her right out the door!!!
Even though, you may very well be the most charming person on the planet, are the patients really buying what you’re selling? Believe it or not, not every patient trust that you actually know what you’re doing! They came in for a routine visit and you’re telling them they need treatment. Dollar signs are flashing in their head, along with the thoughts of “is this doctor for real”! The patient wants to trust you, but they don’t. The patient never gains the trust they need and they leave the practice.
Considering that most doctors and staff tend to treat patients like they are part of the procedure instead of a valued customer with individual needs, you lose the patient. You need to meet their expectations before they can commit to calling you their dentist. Learning how to meet each person’s expectations and figuring out what motivates each individual to buy will increase your patient retention, raise your treatment plan acceptance rate, and multiply your profits.
Smiling politely and asking Ms. Jones how her day has been, isn’t enough anymore! Patients no longer go year after year to the local dentist because it’s close to their house or because their whole family has been going there for years. Patients want to go to the dentist that they feel a connection with and who they think they can trust. They want to know that they are getting the best dental treatment and GUESS WHAT; they are willing to pay for it!
You can’t blame anyone but yourself and you can’t hide from what your numbers say about your retention rate. So go look in the mirror and tell yourself that you can fix this!! At Dental Marketing Hub, we can show you and your staff how to effectively analyze each patient so that you can meet their expectations. Call us now at 805-423-2512 or email us at email@example.com and we will help you stop chasing patients out the door!

What could Dental Implants do For Me?
by Dr. Doe,
You might have asked yourself at some point while reading your information report or one of my emails ,”Well, Doctor, what could dental implants do FOR ME?”
First of all, it’s a life changing option to actually address the problems, not just cover up this ugly situation. Here are the benefits:
- You might regain 90% of your chewing force taking you back to the way you could eat when you were 18 years old. Research shows us that has been well studied.
- It aids you to more fully chew your food for proper digestion with confidence and comfort.
- It could give you back the 10 years of life that was taken from you when you lost your teeth.
- It can STOP the permanent loss of jaw bone.
- You could gain the force to eat more closely to natural teeth.
- You might enjoy the taste of your food without additive to hide the messy denture adhesive and thick plastic bases.
- Now you can enjoy eating while reducing your salt and sugar intake to help control high blood pressure and diabetes.
- You might not experience that gagging feeling from loose fitting dentures.
- Your appearance could improve with confidence when you smile, talk, and laugh with friends and family.
