Many dental practices across the country have postponed all elective procedures or are closed completely due to the coronavirus pandemic. With the uncertainty of the COVID-19 crisis, it’s important to remain positive, stay informed and look for opportunities to help you and your practice grow.
With the coronavirus outbreak affecting dental practices all over the country, RevenueWell has highlighted six tools for communicating with patients to minimize the impact of the pandemic to your practice.
Recognizing a need for growth, the first instinct for Drs. Michael Mefford and Keith Ellis was to add on to the existing building. However, the “big picture” told them otherwise. Now in a new location with a 6,700-square-foot space, they’ve been able to expand their dental hygiene team, hire an associate dentist and invest in new equipment and technology.
As the world moves toward digital operations, it’s time to start considering what life in paperless dental offices will look like. Be it electronic forms or a patient portal, dental practices are finding more ways to engage with patients, sans-paper.
Complimentary beverages, relaxing playlists and new patient office tours are all easy ways to improve patient comfort. But what about scent branding? Tapping into the sense of smell can elevate the quality of an interaction and the possibility of creating a loyal patient.
When planning to relocate and build out a larger office, Dr. Ricky L. Farmer trusted Patterson Dental to help him see his vision through. At nearly 8,000-square-feet, Lake Pointe Dental Care is now at 10 operational operatories with the capacity to go to 16, and the staff has more than doubled.
Whether right before patients come in for an appointment, while in the waiting room, when they’re in the chair, just after their appointment or in between visits, you should always be communicating.
Dr. Ricky L. Farmer’s practice in Somerset, Ky., was successful, but patients couldn’t always be accommodated immediately in the 2,500-square-foot space. His vision was to transition to a larger group practice aligned with his philosophy of “contemporary, comprehensive, compassionate care.”
