Spreading the Word- How to Get More New Patients

For years we have known that word of mouth is the best referral source. In today's technological world "word of mouth" has evolved to key strokes, and the outreach is much more extensive. It has become more important then ever to get the "word" out online about the services that you offer in your dental practice and positive reviews and testimonials from your patients.
In addition to giving potential patients valuable feedback that will most likely effect their decision, this online activity can really help with your website SEO.

I have included a list of different sites you can direct your patients to asking them for a testimonial or just a few words of how you have helped them achieve dental health, get out of pain or let others know what a friendly, happy team you have.
Make sure that you check out the sites and establish a profile with pictures an accurate information.

Many of the sites have strict policies and will remove you from their system if you or your team members are found to be the ones leaving the reviews.

Ask patients who say they are happy with your services to leave feedback on one of the sites listed below. Consider offering an incentive such as a drawing for free whitening.

  6. Thank you. This is a really helpful blog for someone trying to be a dentist in Windsor. I really liked the tips you gave. I am definitely going to use them.

  7. As a dentist in Park Ridge I try to spread the word about the importance of dentistry and not just to get more patients. THank you for this post. I already use an SEO company and do social media but other dentists may not so they should know.

  8. congratulations guys, quality information you have given!!! Amanda

  9. I was wondering about how to become a dentist in Calgary so thank you for posting this.

  10. Well, a key to getting more patients is not only getting yourself known but also having great customer service. Also, finding unique ways to sell your services like offering mouth guards for athletes. My Park Ridge dental office (a suburb of Chicago) sells mouth guards and they have been a hit with child athletes.

  11. I would love to become a dental hygeinist. What are the best schools around that I could go to in order to become a hygienist in Fort McMurray?


  12. As a consumer I do find social sites a great way to learn more about a certain company's services and product. Sometimes, before I buy anything online or on retail shops, I would find reviews on the internet about it. That way I can make sure that what I’ll by is worth every cent. I actually found my dentist in Austin on facebook. Read a few positive reviews about them, and even scheduled an appointment on their website by answering an online registration.

  13. I agree with you that "word of mouth" and its outreach is extensive. There are even other networking sites, which can help to build the business for better ROI. Make sure that you check out the sites and establish a profile with pictures an accurate information about your business. Our dentist offer hygienic services to the patients suffering from various dental issues.

  14. This tips are absolutely helpful, im very glad i could find these and i will most definitely use them! betriebshygiene is excellent on this type of thing.

  15. Now-a-days word of mouth can generate a large amount of traffic to your website. Every business have started promoting their business on social media platforms to get relevant traffic from local areas and boost their local presence.
