Check back each month for a new tip!
June 2012: Super Setups - After doing a procedure, re-create a perfect setup, in the correct order for every procedure you do. Label each item. Then photograph, enlarge and laminate the photos. (Kinkos, Staples) Use these images as your tray covers. Have assistants place instruments and supplies directly on their photo for ideal setyups every time, This is excellent for new employees, part-timers and cross-training staff!
May 2012: OUTSIDE SIGNS – This is almost a “no-brainer”, but a properly done outside sign can bring in an extra 5-10+ new patients per week. A recent survey of signs show only about a 1/3 of them have their telephone numbers on the sign….DUH???
April 2012: ASK FOR REFERALS - After a patient has an awesome dental experience in you office, use this: “Margie, we really enjoy having you in our practice. If any of your relatives or friends need a dentist, please tell them about us.”
