November 5, 2018 -- Your customer service is being judged not only against other dental and medical practices but also retail stores, restaurants, hotels, and other places patients visit. Go out of your way to increase patient satisfaction and patients will stay active and recommend your practice to others.

Do

Redouble all customer service initiatives within the practice. Excellent customer service is the single most important element to turn prospective patients into actual patients. Practices are wise to do as much as possible to ensure that visitors have positive feelings about the office. If people don't feel welcome, they won't join the practice.

Don

Don't forget that your patients are customers. Every day, companies find themselves considering questions such as: Are our customers happy? What can we do to impress our customers? Do we provide quality service? Dental practices must consider these questions as well. Unfortunately, most practices don't think of their patients as their customers. However, the truth is that with every appointment, dentists may only be one mistake away from losing a patient, and this mistake is most often directly related to their level of customer service.
