Are you struggling to grow your dental practice?
You’re not alone.
Many dental practices struggle to grow for a variety of reasons.
Interestingly, one of the most common reasons practices struggle to get to the next level is because they only focus on attracting new patients.
How can having too many new patients stop a dental practice from growing?
Well, here’s the thing…
Acquiring new patients may seem like the best way to grow your practice, but that isn’t always the case.
Your marketing strategy might bring new patients through the door, but your practice will see little benefit if these people leave just as quickly. If you neglect existing patients in the pursuit of new ones, you’ll always be trying to fill a leaky bucket!
Patient retention plays a huge role in the success of any practice. Every dental office should invest time, effort, and resources in developing a patient retention strategy. It costs less to retain patients than to get new patients, returning patients drive greater ROI, and happy patients can be your best advocates!
Some patient losses are unavoidable. Patients may need to relocate for their jobs, kids grow up and move away from home, a percentage of patients will sadly pass away, and many other reasons. If you want to decrease the number of preventable losses, you will need to increase patient retention.
An increased focus on building patient loyalty will boost your bottom line and maximise the benefit of your marketing efforts!
