You’ve got a nice team, excellent professional skills, but patients often seem to be not very loyal towards you. They just do not like very much to spend enough time in a dental office and do not appreciate all the procedures needed to make their smiles healthy.
But an auspicious dentist is the clinician who has a lot of loyal clients. All the while, even the most successful dentists often have to fight for patients and guess why some of them do not come for cure again.
The three reasons for that
Why do not patients always loyally appreciate what good dentists are ready to do for them?
1. A sufferer needs to feel stronger connection with you
This is always the matter of a dentist’s time. You have to spend more of your time to get acquainted with your patients. They will also feel to be better connected to you. It means they will appreciate all your efforts and realize they should visit you regularly.
The best way to earn the sufferer’s-patient’s trust is to show you care about him or her.
2. It’s a kind of important education when you talk about treatment
Many patients do not come to see you regularly or do not spend enough time in your chair/office because they are not aware of treatment necessity. Spend your time during every appointment to talk to your patients about how important all the procedures are. You should educate them on what procedures are important for their health, explain what is going on in their mouths and what consequences all this could have.
3. More treatment presentation is needed
Sometimes treatment can take five or ten minutes, but it is often not enough for the patient. The appointment should also include answering all the questions, giving explanations to the procedures you have just performed or are going to perform, as well as to the value of all you do to the patient in your office.
It is enough for clients just to know that you are a good dentist-clinician. Show them you can earn their attention and do everything necessary for them in the best way. In this case you will see that consumers are ready to come to your office when it is needed.
