Profile your active patients to improve your targeted dental marketing

Is your practice growing?

Active patients: the lifeblood of a dental practice. If your active patient volume is growing, you have decisions to make: is it time to hire another hygienist? Are my secretaries keeping up with the phone calls coming in? Do I need to add an EFDA? On the other hand, if your active patient volume is shrinking, you have different decisions to face: is it time to cut back on staff hours? What additional marketing programs can we begin? What topics do I need to…

The Recent Dramatic Economic Events In American Dentistry Fostered A Great Paradox: For Some Practices, It’s Unprecedented Opportunity. Yet For Others It’s Monumental Challenges And Painful Setbacks!

Virtually unknown among the occupational community of dentists and their business handlers, the recent events were literally the most important events in the private practice of dentistry since Chapin A. Harris, MD, DDS started the profession back in the 1840s. These dramatic events changed dental practice forever. Yet, most dentists and their practice management advisers are not fully prepared to cope with the threats and to capitalize on the opportunities.



Interestingly, the…

Dental Anxiety: What the Dentist Could Do to Help the Patient

Dental anxiety seems to be an increasing phenomenon these days. A lot of people do suffer from dental phobia or fear of dentist and dental work, most especially the kids. And I never exclude myself to dental phobic children. When I was a kid, I never received any dental treatment because having a dental checkup is always among my greatest fears. I constantly feel the tension, during my young age, each time I see a dentist in white lab coats or medical scrubs at the same time holding dental…

Why Go Apple In A Dental Practice And Then Run Windows?

Could someone explain to me why you would pay the high price for an apple computer and then buy a windows operating system to put on it? What would be the advantage of this? Despite popular belief the components in the systems are not manufactured by apple they are just assembled by apple. Meaning you could get the same or better components in other systems.

 

I know everyone says that apples are more reliable and maybe that is partially true if you are running an Apple OS that…

Why Should You Go Digital In Your Practice?

I frequent the dental town message boards and was posed an interesting question after asking one myself.  A Dr had mentioned that he has the digital over film discussion  a lot and that he couldn't justify spending the money to outfit his practice since he didn't think he would see a return on it.  So I informed him that with our technology solution and staff training our doctors see a production increase of at least 15% within their practice and that the practices are able to cover the cost…

What to do with old equipment after going digital

 

We have been having a lot of my clients come to me with the issue of getting rid of their old working equipment when they make the move to digital.

 

There are a whole bunch of options and few of them work well.

 

Craigslist, Ebay, Hoping and Praying and donating.

 

I know of lots of offices that have tried all four options. The problem in most cases is the dentist does not have time to sit around answering the constant craigslist and ebay…

Keep It Super Simple: A Dental Technology Integrator's Mantra

Nothing is more frustrating for a dental technology integrator like myself than going into a new network that is just a complete mess. I just did a basic install of some digital x-ray sensors in an office that already had prof.suni and dentrix. As I am going through the workstations loading drivers I see that windows firewall is on, anti virus real time scan is on with no exclusions set, and the current IT guy has like 5 mapped drives all mapping multiple ways to get to the same location. It…

Keeping Your Employees Motivated in Your Dental Practice

Motivating employees and patients is a key part of managing your dental practice.  To motivate is to provide with an incentive, to move to action, or to impel. Your patients need an incentive to bring them into your office for treatment. Whether that incentive is to prevent cavities, take care of a toothache, or to take advantage of a coupon, they all keep your patient coming into your practice and keep your schedule full.

 

Motivating your employees is a much different task. A…
