Secrets of a High Converting Dental Practice

The Internet has undeniably changed the face of healthcare and the way dentists market to their patients. As more and more people use the Internet to research dental conditions and locate a dentist in their area, a dental practice must be acutely aware of the unique challenges brought on by today’s digital world, and develop effective strategies to convert web visitors into new patients. If your website does nothing else, it should communicate who you are, what you do, and most importantly, what sets you apart from other dentists. That message needs to be carried through to your office so that when a lead comes in, your staff is empowered to overcome common objections and book an appointment.

Dental Revenue works with practices, groups, and DSOs from across the country. We’ve found that the dental practices with the highest conversion rates, that is turning leads into new patients, share similar traits. One of those is to treat all incoming phone calls with purpose and provide simple answers to common objections.

The Characteristics of a High Converting Dental Practice

  1. Treat each incoming call with a purpose
  2. Make a great first impression; be happy the patient called and make them feel welcome
  3. Articulate in a compelling way what separates their practice from others
  4. Have a predictable, simple new patient process
  5. Avoid the trap of collecting too much information or telling the patient too much before they come in
  6. Have easy answers to common objections like dental insurance or price
  7. Focus on setting an appointment rather than getting into specific answers about price
  8. When price information is provided, offer a value statement to help the patient make the association between price and value.
