Have you ever walked into an operatory to find a patient chatting happily with their hygienist, only to shut down when they see you enter the room? If you have, you’re not alone. Although you are there to help your patients, many people dread going to the dentist, and the sight of a white coat can trigger them to clam up.
Depending on where they live, your potential patients may be driving by up to 10 different dental offices on their drive to work each day. It’s imperative to find a way to stand out. Every person out there has the choice to choose their own dentist—why would they choose yours? If your dental team is exceptional, you will be sure to stand out and keep patients coming back time and time again. Here are some tips to ensuring your dental team rocks.
