Dental Practice Made Simple is a video series from DrBicuspid.com and Levin Group. Tune in every other Friday for a quick tip from Dr. Roger P. Levin to learn how to build high-powered, proven systems that lead to practice success.
In the last episode of Dental Practice Made Simple, Dr. Roger P. Levin discussed the No. 1 reason why patients decline treatment: the cost. In this episode, Levin addresses another main reason why patients postpone treatment: the time.
"Many patients turn down treatment with the belief they'll get to it later on," Levin said. "Make the appointment as convenient as possible."
To make the appointment convenient, offer a time slot at the patient's favorite appointment time. You can also give them the longest possible appointment to do all of their dentistry at one time.
"That shifts their perspective from putting it off and waiting to doing it now," Levin said.
Watch the video below to learn more about increasing case acceptance.
