Be what you want your patients to be.

Be what you want your patients to be. Leadership is about setting an example. If you want pleasant patients, be pleasant. If you want patients to smile at you, smile at them. If you want energetic patients, be energetic. People mirror other people. It is amazing when you watch two people how one will gradually take on the characteristics, body language, and even tone of voice of the other. They don’t even realize they are doing it.

Referral Marketing Strategy Tip: Get ahead of any problems.

Referral Marketing Strategy Tip: Get ahead of any problems. If you have any sense of a problem or red flag with a patient, get back to their referring doctor right away. You want to be the first person to let a referring doctor know about a potential problem and what you’re going to do about it. If the patient gets to the referring doctor first, you may put yourself in the position of not being able to explain the situation or how you plan to resolve it.

Be prepared to help patients with their dental insurance.

Be prepared to help patients with their dental insurance. You can assume that many patients will not understand their insurance or even how to work with their dental insurance company. They may even think that their dental insurance works the same way as medical insurance. The practice should be prepared and anticipate that they will need to help patients through the process. Practices that do will have higher production, higher case acceptance, and more patients.

Schedule consultations in the afternoon.

Schedule consultations in the afternoon. For most surgical practices, the best time for treating patients—especially the more challenging cases—is in the morning. For this reason, block out time in the mid-afternoon for consults. With most of the day’s production already completed, it will be easier to focus on presenting effectively and winning case acceptance.

When meeting endo patients, shake hands with them.

When meeting endo patients, shake hands with them. Regardless of your role in the practice and no matter what the patients’ age or gender, offer your hand and introduce yourself when you meet them. A handshake not only sends a message of respect but also creates a personal connection—and can be comforting for patients who feel nervous about their appointment.

Set aside time every week to work on the practice.

Set aside time every week to work on the practice. Most of the time dentists and team members put all of their energies into patient care and administrative duties. Always make time to step back and think about how to improve your practice. Highly successful practices focus not only on how to work in the practice, but also how to work on it.

Never ignore patients when you’re running behind.

Never ignore patients when you’re running behind. When you’re running late should you keep the patient informed, or simply have them sit there wondering what’s happening? The obvious answer is to keep them up-to-date, but at busy front desks this often unnoticed. When you’re behind schedule, apologizing to patients and keeping them informed lets them know you’re focused on them. This makes all the difference in patient satisfaction.
