Do's & don'ts for marketing communications

By Dr. Roger P. Levin, DrBicuspid.com contributing writer

May 9, 2022 -- In a way, all communication is marketing communication. Dental practices must actively market themselves if they are to grow. Every communication with patients and prospective patients is an opportunity to project the desired image of your practice, reinforce the relationship, and, ultimately, grow the business. Develop a clear, concise brand message, and use it always and everywhere.

Do

Market consistently. To ensure the best marketing results, consistency is critical. Use a wide range of ongoing strategies throughout the year. Haphazard marketing invariably generates inconsistent results, which lead to lower production and decreased profitability.

Don

Don't forget to analyze your practice and look for marketing opportunities. What strategies has the practice used successfully in the last few years? Which ones need to be replaced? Look at practice milestones, community activities, social events, holidays, and seminars as possible marketing opportunities.
