How to attract new patients to your dental practice

Surely you have thought about how to increase the number of patients in your dental clinic. Here are some tricks and tips that may be useful to you.

Patient's health comes first

It may seem trivial and obvious, but we think this is a good starting point to make your clinic more transparent and improve the client's perception of you. By dedicating yourself to your patients in a transparent way, we will ensure their possible return in case there are other needs.

Remember that the first goal is patient care, and maybe this can take a back seat if you focus only on improving compared to your direct competitors.

Is it advisable to promote lower prices?

Working at the lowest price is probably counterproductive!

First, because there will always be someone who will offer lower or more competitive prices than yours.

Secondly, by doing this, you can make your customers think that your services are of lower quality. In addition, you should get a positive margin that will allow you to maintain business and pay suppliers because late payments will create a very bad image for you and you will lose confidence. Remember that you are providing a service, and it is fair to pay correctly!

On the other hand, everything depends on the direction of your clinic: if your goal is to offer low prices, try to create an image of the absolute economy in the minds of your customers; or if your goal is to be a high-level clinic with higher prices, attracting a different type of customer to your clinic. The clinic. One way or another, you should choose and not stay in limbo, because you risk not attracting new types of customers.

Advertise your clinic

How to advertise correctly for your clinic?

The clinic is a business, so it has to pay taxes. Payment of these taxes is obtained thanks to daily work, like your business like all your workers.

 In order for the company to function and fulfill its obligations, it must have patients who pay for the services rendered and performance.

Finally, you need to advertise and retain your patients. One of the main mistakes that you often think about is that to attract and retain patients, you have to resort to discounts on your products and services.

 Statistically, if you advertise at a low price, you will attract a certain type of customer who will be difficult to keep if your clinic is not a fixed discount store.

Your clinic should not be a reference for the lowest price, but excellence where patients can find a professional with whom to create a trusting relationship. That's what health marketing is.

Greet your patients and make them feel welcome, realize the quality and professionalism that your clinic offers them, and make them want to come back!
