The Eternal Quest for More Dental Patients

The Eternal Quest for More Dental Patients

If you’re very fortunate, you have all the dental patients you can handle. And those patients are the kind that stay, pay, and refer.

Not only that, but you enjoy the freedom to pursue the cases that really get your motor running, the ones that you absolutely love to do.

If you’re not very fortunate, you’re wondering where and how you’re going to get the new dental patients you need to grow your practice and thrive. You’re not alone in wondering about that.

Competition is fierce and becoming worse. Dental schools are graduating more new dentists with a lot of debt that they’re eager to start paying off. Established dentists are delaying retirement to recoup retirement funds lost during the recession. Corporate dentistry and large practices are taking chunks out of solo practice dentists’ incomes.

Far too many dentists are viewed as commodities by prospective dental patients. Basically, they’re seen as competent but interchangeable tooth technicians. One dentist is as good as another. And since corporate practices can beat you on advertising, availability, and price, too many new patients will not choose you.

Unless, that is, you give them a reason to choose you that has little to do with advertising, availability, or price. That reason should be that you’re more a more attractive dentist, the trusted and preferred choice to solve their dental problems.

That’s the premise of our industry-leading Patient Attraction System™, and we’re using it to help more than 500 dentists on three continents get more patients, more profits, and more freedom.

Once you stop competing on the basis of price or availability, things change dramatically. For one thing, you’re pretty much off the monthly advertising treadmill because you have a system in place that works 24/7/365 to attract more and better patients.

Another change is that you stop attracting as many price shoppers and one-and-dones. Your practice becomes more about loyal, repeat patients and the cases that you truly enjoy treating.

You can set up your own patient attraction system. I’ve provided more than enough information in this blog, on our Patient Attraction Podcasts™, in our gorgeous Patient Attraction Magazine® , and in our Inside Patient Attraction™ web shows. But frankly, creating your own successful patient attraction system takes a lot of work and a number of highly specialized skills.

I’ve made all that information available because I know that not every dentist is willing to partner with SmartBox. And frankly, we’re not right for everybody. We offer only select dentists in each market the chance to experience double-your-practice growth and the success that comes with it.

It will almost certainly take you a lot of time to set up your own system. Depending on the competition in your market, you may not be able to afford that time. And it’s not the best use of your time, because you make money actually treating patients.

Or, you can look into letting SmartBox do it for you. I’ve got over 70 of the brightest minds in the industry working to help select dentists attract more and better patients
