June 2022 Dental Office Management Tips and Ideas

June 2022 Dental Office Management Tips and Ideas

Hello Friends,

How are things going for you at the office? Are you on track to reach or exceed your practice goals for this second quarter? Today, I am sharing some office management and leadership tips and ideas for you to put into action during the month of June so you can enjoy practice improvement, growth, and less stress.

Practice improvement and growth starts with you and your team! Remember, there is no way that the quality of patient care and experiences will exceed the quality of the people who provide it.

Don’t assume your team knows that you appreciate them just because you give them a paycheck every week. Show them by your words and actions that you value and appreciate their contributions to the success of the practice.

Invest in your team – Thoroughly train your employees (new & old) on your practice goals, systems, expectations, software, telephone skills, dental procedures, protocols, etc.  Include regular continuing education – you can do this with in-office training, webinars, lunch and learns, and seminars/classes outside of the office.

Have more fun as a team – Recess at Work day is June 16th – Get outside for a few minutes with your team for some fresh air. If you can’t all get outside, open the windows, and turn up the radio.  How about a sweet treat to enjoy during “recess”? (ex: ice cream, frozen drink, etc.)

Here are a few more ideas for you: Team Building and Employee Gratitude

Insurance Renewals & Unscheduled Patients – Some insurance companies renew their maximum on June 1st. Pull a report of your patients due in hygiene or with unscheduled restorative treatment that have a June insurance maximum renewal date. Make calls and send letters/texts/emails that their maximum renewed and encourage them to schedule an appointment.

In fact, this is a great time to reach out to all of your unscheduled patients the insured and the uninsured. Theme: Summer Sun & Smiles

Gift Certificates – Remember to offer gift certificates for purchase. Also, Electric toothbrushes, Water Flossers and Teeth Whitening make great gift ideas. 

Looking for Marketing & Practice Growth Tips & Ideas for June? You’ll find them here: June 2022 Marketing Ideas

The Marketing and Practice Growth Tips & Ideas that I share each month, when implemented, help you to welcome more new patients, engage with the community, have more fun as a team, and get your existing patients talking positively about their experiences in your office – but, is that enough to really grow your practice? Could it be that you’re working each month to bring in more new patients but aren’t enjoying “real” practice growth? You may have healthy new patient numbers each month and full schedules, and yet, the office isn’t growing and you’re working hard, feeling stressed out.

Are you retaining and reappointing your new patients? How are you staying in touch with your unscheduled patients? What systems are in place for ensuring that your new and existing patients consistently receive great experiences in the office and over the telephone?

What does retaining, reactivating, and reappointing established patients mean for you and the patient?

  • We are creatures of habit.  It’s easier to do something we are already doing than to do something different.
  • Established relationship. (They already know, like, and trust you. You just need to focus on strengthening that relationship)
  • No marketing costs – you’ve already paid the initial investment in getting the patient.

What are you doing to keep track of your established patients? What are you doing to ensure your established patients don’t slip through the cracks? 

Doctors, I would love the opportunity to work along with you and your team to help you set and exceed your practice goals. If you would like to schedule a no-obligation, complimentary consultation to learn how our coaching program works, please email me at bhaydenconsulting@gmail.com.

Dental Office Management and Leadership Ideas for June 2021

Dental Office Management and Leadership Ideas for June 2021

Hello Friends,

Did you catch my dental marketing ideas for June? If not, here is the link June 2021 Marketing Ideas

Now that you have your marketing plans set for June…

Are you looking to boost team morale? Is your dental schedule looking weak?

You’ll find several tips and ideas to help support your vision and mission right here.

Dental Practice Management and Leadership Ideas and Reminders for June

“Leadership is an action, not a position.” – Donald McGannon

Here are 8 Important Actios of Leadership (source: inc.com)

1. Learn to lead by example.

2. Be goal-oriented.

3. Take responsibility.

4. Share the glory.

5. Know how to develop a team.

6. Become a master of communication.

7. Be courageous and assertive.

8. Be confident.

Remember, “you can borrow knowledge, but not action.” – James Clear

Recess At Work Day: 17th   

Get outside for a few minutes with your team for some fresh air. If you can’t all get outside, open the windows and turn up the radio.  How about a sweet treat to enjoy during “recess”? (ex: ice cream, frozen drink, etc.)

Doctors, if you’re struggling to reach your practice goals or you would just like to improve and refine your current office systems – feel free to contact me for a complimentary, no-obligation 30-minute telephone consultation at bhaydenconsulting@gmail.com to see if a coaching relationship is right for you.

Hygiene Continuing Care/Recare Reminders:

Postcard & Social Media Site Scripting Idea: Summertime is a great time of year and it can also be a busy time of year. We encourage you to remember to take the time to squeeze in your regular dental visit before the summer months fly by. Regular dental visits are so important to your overall health.

Incomplete Treatment Reports:

Many insurance companies renewed their maximum on June 1st. Pull a report of any patients due in hygiene or with incomplete treatment that have a June renewal date. Make calls and send letter/text/email that their maximum renewed and encourage them to schedule an appointment.

Some questions to consider:

  • Of your active patients (seen in the last 18 months) how many have a next appointment scheduled and how many do not?
  • How many patients left the practice this year?
  • What can you do together as a team to retain more patients by consistently exceeding their expectations?
  • What can you do together as a team to help more patients say yes to your very best care? Remember, When your patients are healthy – the practice is healthy.

Knowing your practice numbers and doing something with what you know about those numbers is key to growing and improving your practice. Numbers tell a story. Numbers tell you if your practice is healthy or unhealthy.  

Do you know what your office numbers look like? How many of your active patients are unscheduled? How many patients you’re gaining and losing each month? You need to know where you’re at currently to know how to best care for your patients and what your potential for growth is. To help you get that data quickly, like within minutes – if your PMS is either Dentrix, Eaglesoft, or Open Dental you can request a complimentary, no-obligation practice data snapshot here: Game-Changing Awareness from Dental Intelligence  – Within minutes we’ll identify your practice’s strengths and uncover hidden opportunities.  I am happy to assist you with this at no charge.

It always brightens my day to hear from you! If you appreciated these complimentary ideas I  would love for you to please take a minute to leave me a review/recommendation here on GOOGLE and/or FACEBOOK.  Thank you!!

Hope you enjoy these ideas and are able to use some of them to help make the month of June a fantastic one for you and your team.

June 2021 Dentist Office Marketing Tips and Ideas

June 2021 Dentist Office Marketing Tips and Ideas

Hello Friends –

The month of June will close out your second quarter for the year; why not end it as your best quarter ever? At the very least, make it your best June ever.

Doctors, if you’re struggling to reach your practice goals – feel free to contact me for a complimentary, no-obligation 30-minute telephone consultation at bhaydenconsulting@gmail.com to see if a coaching relationship is right for you.

Here are some tips and ideas to help with your marketing plans.

Dental Marketing Tips and Ideas

June is Oral Health Month and Smile Month

A great month to encourage the community to share more smiles.

Theme: Cruise on in for Better Dental Health

Focus: Preventive Care (Cleanings, Sealants, and Fluoride for Adults and Children)

Goal: Raise awareness for the importance of preventive dental care (getting patients back on track with regular dental visits), take better care of your current patients, increase production, and bring in new patients.

Give-Away/Gift Idea: Drawing to win a Car Care Kit (Bucket filled with car care supplies.) Or team up with a local car wash or oil change shop for gift certificate donations. Have a drawing that your patients can enter a free car wash and/or oil change.

Example of Scripting:

Sealants: “A Tooth Without A Sealant is like a Car Without A Seat Belt” Dental Sealants Protect Your Teeth Against Decay and Cavities.

dental marketing benefits of sealants

Gift Certificates – Remember to offer gift certificates for purchase. 

Community Engagement & Involvement Ideas ~

June is Perennial Gardening Month – Host a Summer Perennial Plant Exchange at your office. What a fantastic way to meet your neighbors! (It would be awesome to turn this into a “Beautify & Clean-Up” Local Businesses in the Community Event.)

Summer Reading Programs – Check with your local library to see if they are hosting any summer reading program incentives and offer to donate a prize(s). You can also design and print some fun bookmarks that include your office information.

Fun Community Gift Give-Away Idea – June 6th is Drive-In Movie Day – Put together a drive-in movie gift basket. (Fill it with candy, salty snacks, flashlight, bug spray, blanket, etc.) Have people comment on your Facebook page with the first movie they saw at the drive-in or what their favorite movie is to be entered for a chance to win the gift basket.

~ Educational Opportunites ~

National Migraine and Headache Awareness Month & National Headache Awareness Week: June 6th – 12th  / If it’s not your patient in the chair that suffers from migraines or headaches, it’s someone that they know. Great opportunity to share with them information about how you can help bring them or a friend some relief.

 Men’s Health Week: 14th – 20th  / Compared to women, men are less likely to visit a dentist, oftentimes, only seeing a dentist when a problem arises.  Share dental health tips for men on your website, and social media sites.

~ Social Media Post Ideas to Improve Engagement During the month of June ~

Great Outdoors Month – Print up a list of local parks, trails, camping sites, public pools/splash pads, kids outdoor activity ideas, etc. for your patients to take home and share with friends, family, co-workers & neighbors. Be sure to include your office contact information.  All month-long share this information on your social media pages.

National Candy Month

Say Something Nice Day: 1st

Donut Day: 4th

Iced Tea Day: 10th

Corn on the Cob Day: 11th

First Day of Summer: 20th

International Body Piercing Day: 28th (share dangers of oral piercings)

Remember to have FUN!!
