3 Steps to Dental Practice Growth in the Current State of the Dental Implant Economy

This 3-step plan is a surefire way to solidify your positioning as a local dental implant authority and ensure you have as many arches as you desire – even considering the current state of the dental implant economy. DON’T SKIP ON ANY OF THESE STEPS. Take extreme ownership of this and you will see incredible results!

Step 1: Establish Yourself as the Leading Local Expert and Authority

  • Give your patients a compelling reason to choose you over your competition with a solid unique value proposition (UVP).
  • Create and distribute a lot of social proof, especially video testimonials, smile reveals, and before-and-after images.

Step 2: Enhance Your Presence Everywhere and Increase Your Frequency of Appearances

      • Share your unique value proposition (UVP) and social proof everywhere (social media channels, your website, through your marketing).
      • Increase Investment in Paid Advertising on Google, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. With a rising number of doctors entering the field of implant placement and marketing, patient acquisition costs have surged. The average cost per lead has increased by $10 to $20 annually. What you allocated last year will not yield the same patient volume this year. To acquire more cases, a higher advertising budget is essential. On average, the cost to acquire a new patient ranges from $2500 to $3500, varying based on your practice’s location and the strength of your unique value proposition (UVP) and social proof.
      • Allocate resources towards both search engine optimization (SEO) and developing a persuasive website that effectively converts visitors into high-quality leads. Utilizing tools such as New Patient Generators or the Dental Funnel Platform can significantly enhance your website’s conversion rate, potentially achieving a conversion rate of 3 to 18 times higher than your current site.

      Step 3: Secure a Highly Trained and Accountable Patient Conversion Team

        • Recruit and hire an appointment setter and treatment coordinator proficient in “sales” techniques or persuasive skills.
        • The role of the Appointment Setter is often underestimated, so it is crucial to have a reliable individual filling this position.
        • Offer extensive initial training and continuous development programs to ensure their skills remain sharp.
        • Establish a daily dental implant team huddle to assess and discuss your dental implant statistics, including the number of leads, lead-to-scheduled consultation rate, show rate, and start rate. Concentrate your training efforts on areas where your numbers are comparatively low.
        • Doctors, undergo comprehensive training and be well-versed in your responsibilities to ensure you perform your role effectively and avoid making common mistakes.
