Learn more about your patients. You should get to know more about your patients than their names. One of our recommendations is to learn one new thing about every patient every time they walk into your office. Keep a record of this personal information so you can refer back to it and scan the record prior to each patient appointment. It only takes a few seconds but creates a powerful effect.
Don't forget to continue to communicate with patients each month. Create an ongoing communications program that contacts patients each month with important practice updates, dental information, and messaging that communicates the practice's dedication to its patients. This communication can be delivered using multiple forms of outreach including email, texts, snail mail, or even handouts and brochures. It's also important to disseminate this information to patients during the conversations that you have with them at hygiene visits.
