Dental Office Management and Leadership Ideas for July 2022

Dental Office Management and Leadership Ideas for July 2022

Hello Friends,

July starts your third quarter for the year! Now, is your opportunity to really make the rest of this year count. Make it your BEST year yet!

Here you’ll find some tips and ideas for how you can enjoy healthier, more productive schedules during the month of July and beyond.

Office Yearly Goals – Where are you at with your Production, Collection, Patient Retention, and New Patient Goals for 2022? Are you growing and improving? If not, take some time to evaluate what you can do differently to exceed your goals. Remember, what you’re not changing you’re choosing. And what you allow, you encourage.

Reactivation and Reappointment – How many of your “active” patients have their next appt scheduled and how many do not?  Make sure none of your patients are slipping through any cracks. A solid reactivation and reappointment protocol is key to keeping healthy schedules and healthy patients.

Friends, if you do not know what your office numbers look like, please examine, record, and measure these and other important key practice indicators. 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.

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 my coaching program works, please email me at bhaydenconsulting@gmail.com.

Employee Appreciation – July 7th is chocolate day. Surprise your team with a special chocolatey treat.

Reduce Cancellations – With the awesome summer sun and fun activities, patients can sometimes be tempted or inclined to want to last-minute cancel (or miss) their dental appointments. What can you do to reduce last-minute changes to the schedule?

  • Send appointment reminders well in advance of their appointment and be sure to send same-day “looking forward to seeing you” friendly reminders even to patients that “confirmed” their appointment. People often get distracted and can easily forget their confirmed appointments. Your appointment reminders should say that this time has been reserved exclusively for you.
  • Create and take advantage of Same-Day Dentistry opportunities. While you have the patient there, if your schedule allows, and they are agreeable go ahead and take care of those sealants, fillings, or ortho scans instead of re-appointing them.
  • Encourage them to keep their scheduled appointments by having a drawing/contest for a great prize (gift basket, tickets, gift cards, etc). When they come in for their appointment they’ll be entered into a drawing to win a prize.

Family Friendly Offices – July is Get Ready for Kindergarten Month. During the month of July share dental health tips for parents of school-aged children on your office’s social media platforms. Depending on your schedules’ opening availability, consider setting aside one or two days for “Get Ready for Kindergarten with Healthy Smiles” visits. Make it a fun experience for the children.

July 2022 Dental Marketing And Practice Growth Tips and Ideas

July 2022 Dental Marketing And Practice Growth Tips and Ideas

Hello Friends,

Happy Summer!

With the dental marketing ideas that I am sharing today along with some planning, enthusiasm and implementation you have the chance to really set yourselves apart from the other offices in the community, welcome more new patients, and exceed your current patients’ expectations (get them talking about how awesome you are!), have less stress and more fun as a team. Sound good to you?

Here are a few ideas to help you enjoy a terrific & productive July!

National Ice Cream Month

Treatment Offer – July is National Ice Cream Month and Close to 50% of Americans suffer from or experience tooth sensitivity from time to time. It’s safe to say that many of your patients may be suffering from tooth sensitivity or they know someone who does.

Your product/service feature during the month of July: Desensitizing Agents to treat tooth sensitivity.

Patient Appreciation – Offer free ice cream cones to your patients. How will offering free ice cream cones not incur any extra cost to you? Contact a local Ice Cream Shop for some cross-marketing. Ask if they would be willing to donate 4 or more FREE Ice Cream Cone Gift Certificates that you will use during the month of July for a weekly drawing that your patients will enter to win. What a fantastic way to exceed your patients’ expectations with no extra cost to you.

National Watermelon Month – Patient Appreciation Idea – Serve your patients’ watermelon slices or cubes as a special treat during their visit.

Get Ready For Kindergarten Month – For family-friendly offices – depending on your schedule, consider setting aside one or two days for “Get Ready for Kindergarten with Healthy Smiles” visits. Make it a fun experience for the children. Promote via your social media sites.

Dentist Office Management Tips and Ideas for July 2021

Hello Friends,

It’s been said, “Whatever you’re not changing you’re choosing.” What are you choosing for your dental practice? Do your choices bring you closer to your goals or further away? If you’re not changing the things you know you need to change I encourage you to get the support you need to make the changes necessary to choose success. (Visit Where are you taking your dental practice?)

Office Yearly Goals –. Are you happy with your Production, Collection, and New Patient Goals for 2021? If not, now is the time to make some adjustments.

Employee Appreciation IdeaEverybody Deserves A Massage Week: July 18-24th. Why not bring in a massage therapist to the office or purchase massage gift cards for your hard-working employees?

Reactivation and Reappointment – How many of your “active” patients have their next appt scheduled and how many do not?  Let us work together to ensure none of your patients are slipping through any cracks. A solid reactivation and reappointment protocol is key to keeping healthy schedules and healthy patients.

Friends, if you do not know what your office numbers look like, please examine, record, and measure these and other important key practice indicators. 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.

Doctors, if you would like to grow and improve your dental practice and have wondered what it might be like to work with me and what coaching is all about… please feel free to reach out to me to schedule a complimentary, no-obligation coaching call at bhaydenconsulting@gmail.com.

 “Time has a wonderful way of showing us what really matters.” If you’re often running behind schedule, investigate as to the reason(s) why. If you know the why… change whatever it is causing you to stray from the schedule. Running behind schedule sends a message to your patients and your team that you don’t respect their time. Respect your team by sticking to the scheduled work hours. Be sure that they are not habitually working through their lunch or having to work late. They need breaks to refresh and refuel. Give them that. They have a life outside of work and making them work past their scheduled end time is a real drag. I understand that sometimes unexpected events may occur so they might be asked to work late or into a lunch hour but this should be a rare occasion, not a daily or even occurrence. 

Arriving at the office with plenty of time before the first scheduled patient, expecting your patients to arrive on time, never wait on hygiene exams, calculate the actual amount of time it takes to do procedures, control the schedules, these things will help you stay on time.

Family Friendly Offices – July is Get Ready for Kindergarten Month. Depending on your schedule, consider setting aside one or two days for “Get Ready for Kindergarten with Healthy Smiles” visits. Make it a fun experience for the children. Promote via your social media sites.
