Fall Dental Marketing and Practice Growth Ideas for October 2023

Fall Dental Marketing and Practice Growth Ideas for October 2023

Hello Friends,

October is Apple Month – “You can count the seeds in an apple, but you can’t count the apples in a seed.

Marketing your dental practice is like planting seeds. Some seeds sprout right away, and others may take a while. You may have written some seeds off as a loss and when you least expect it, there it sprouts and produces beautiful results. And some may sprout where you don’t even remember planting.

What are your marketing seeds? Everything that you do, everything that the patient (and potential patient) sees, hears & feels. Everything Matters!

The marketing seed tips & ideas you’ll find here are designed to help you exceed expectations for your current patients  and  the potential new patients in your community.  If you don’t want more new patients do these things for your current patients of record so they keep choosing you. Plus, it helps when you’re all having more fun at work!

June 2023 Dental Practice Management, Leadership, and Team Building Ideas

June 2023 Dental Practice Management, Leadership, and Team Building Ideas

Hello Friends,

Here are some practice management reminders, leadership, and team-building ideas that can easily be implemented during the month of June. (Don’t wait until the end of the second quarter of the year to evaluate if your and your team’s daily actions are in harmony with your practice vision and mission. )

For Marketing, Social Media Content, and Practice Growth Ideas for June Visit: June 2023 Marketing Ideas

Leadership & Team Building & Appreciation Idea

Practice improvement and growth start 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.

It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed.” –Napolean Hill

 

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.

Doughnut Day or Donut Day: June 2nd – Bring in donuts for the team!

 

 

Recess at Work day is June 15th – 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.)

Practice Management Reminders & Ideas

Unscheduled Patients – Now is a great time to reach out to your unscheduled patients both active and inactive patients. Why? Because for your patients to smile healthy they need to schedule the treatment you’ve diagnosed and to come in regularly for their hygiene continuing care appointments.

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?
  • What systems are in place to ensure the team is staying in touch with your unscheduled patients?
  • 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.

Reviews & Recommendations – Ask your patients to please review your office on Google and recommend you on Facebook. Don’t simply rely on third-party companies to do this for you. It’s so simple (& free) to invite your patients to do this for you.

Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.”  ― Mother Teresa

May 2023 Dental Office Management, Leadership, and Team Building Ideas

May 2023 Dental Office Management, Leadership, and Team Building Ideas

Hello Friends,

To help you plan and prepare to make the month of May a productive and happy one, I am sharing some office management, leadership, and team-building ideas and reminders with you. ENJOY!

Looking for Marketing and Social Media Content Ideas for May? Check these out: May 2023 Practice Growth Ideas

Practice Management Reminders and Ideas

Treatment Plans and Financial Presentations – Always present patients with a copy of their treatment plan and financial expectations at the time of diagnosis/scheduling.   When was the last time you reviewed your treatment plan and financial presentation verbiage & systems?

Insurance Renewal – Some insurance companies renew their maximum on June 1st. Find out how many of your patients have benefits remaining that will expire at the end of May and how many will renew on June 1st. Starting now, make your Use It or Lose It telephone calls,  mail reminders, and share on social media.

Leadership Tips and Reminders

It’s true if you want your patients to consistently have great experiences, accept your treatment recommendations, and refer their friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers to you – it takes a quality, happy, and productive team. Of course, though, it starts with you!

Set the Example / Lead by Example – Treat your employees how you would like them to treat your best patient. 😉

Job Expectations & Job Responsibilities – What are the performance expectations for your team? Does each employee clearly understand their role in the practice?

A good objective of leadership is to help those who are doing poorly to do well and to help those who are doing well to do even better.” –Jim Rohn

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.
