2. Dental Advertisements

Developing an advertising budget is a great way to promote your business. You can discuss with your accountant to find the dollars in your budget that can be spent on an advertising campaign. Make sure when developing an advertising campaign, you also develop a way to track the results to measure the success of your investment. Don’t forget about social media and PPC when planning your advertising strategy. Strategically planning these campaigns with the correct optimizations is what will ultimately allow your practice to receive the best ROI possible.

4. Brochures

Brochures can also be an effective way of promoting your dental practice. You can have them at your office but you can also have them available at schools, churches, shopping areas and various other areas about your community. Make sure you list the services you offer along with your hours and contact information.

5. Mail and Coupons

Direct mailing is a great way to let people know about your dental practice. Most communities send out packets or booklets of coupons to their residents. Including a coupon for a free cleaning or initial visit may bring in some new dental patients.

6. Google Reviews and Referrals

Ask your patients to leave a Google review for your practice. Not only will it tell you how you’re doing, but it will help you rank higher in Google search results. Potential patients will read Google reviews when deciding which dentist to use, and credibility will be on your side. You can even get creative and offer an incentive (like a Starbucks gift card) to patients who leave a review.

7. Digital Presence

Is your website modern and up-to-date? Your website is the first place a potential patient will go to learn about your practice. Make sure to include information about yourself and your support team, the services you offer, contact information and hours of operation. Also, develop a way of allowing patients to schedule appointments online and ask questions. This will make things more convenient for your patients, especially if they are on your website after hours.

8. Social Media

Social media sites can also help to promote your dental practice. Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter are free resources that can keep your patients and potential patients informed 24 hours a day. Patients like to see pictures of who you are, who your staff is, what your office looks like and what equipment you have available.
