Will this system work for my dental practice?
Business Coaching for Dentists
“In June this year, we had 126 new patients.”
Hi, my name is April Lai. I started practicing pediatric dentistry in 2002. I went to Oklahoma State University for my undergraduate and then I went to the University of Oklahoma, graduated in 1999 then went on to the University of Colorado Children’s Hospital Pediatric Dental Residency and started practicing with Mark Marrow in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I really always wanted to be a pediatric dentist. My kids kind of asked me, what did you wanna be mommy? ‘Cause they wanna be professional athletes and things like that. And I just have to say I really always wanted to be a pediatric dentist. I love my pediatric dentist and it was always a great experience for me. I was able to intern at his office and college and he was really a great mentor for me. We’ve always loved what we do. We love being pediatric dentists, but we just were not very good at putting our marketing ideas into practice.
We’ve been able to implement our ideas and make them a reality. Since using the new approach, it’s just brought a lot of new life to our practice. It’s increased patients significantly, but it’s also just brought an … Our staff loves the common goal that we all have, is just brought him an excitement into our practice that we didn’t have before. For instance, last August we had 114 new patients compared to this August, we had 180 new patients. And it’s just at the end of the month, when you count that up, you just can’t deny what an impact that this new Business Coaching for Dentists marketing approach has had on our office. In June last year we had 85 new patients. In June this year, we had 126 new patients. It’s just astounding. Before, we were trying to implement our ideas, but we didn’t have access to a videographer, a photographer, a website designer, search engine optimizer.
I didn’t even know what some of these things meant as far as SEO’s and et cetera. But they have all of those people onsite, ready to … You just tell them what you want and they can make it happen. They have great ideas. They make you feel so comfortable. They take your ideas and make them real. In the past, we’ve worked with other marketing firms, companies, but every time they just, they wanted us to do different things, but it involved us doing different things and in reality we’re just working being pediatric dentist. I don’t have … I just don’t have the capabilities to make these things happen sometimes. I don’t have the skillset to do good videos or figure out how to put things on my website. So, it was really nice just to do the dentistry that we love and have a team that could take care of the rest.
I would highly recommend that every dentist embrace the Business Coaching for Dentists approach from Thrivetime Show. It just … I’m a 44 year old mom and I still have young kids, but it’s just a different mindset with younger parents these days. They love the digital age and I was kind of set in my ways. I still wanted to just do print, do it in your own little school newspaper, things like that, but that’s just not how people are getting their information these days. They’re getting it through Facebook. They’re getting it through reviews. They’re getting it through your website. And even though I’m not accustomed to that, it doesn’t mean that I don’t need to change with the times. It’s just a new age, and whether I wanted … Whether I look at it that way or not, that’s how my clients are. When you embrace some marketing strategies, you will see growth. You will see change in your practice, and it is exciting.
Hi. I’m Dr. Mark Morrow with Pediatric Dentists in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I started my dental practice in 1985. Back in high school, when I was trying to decide whether to go to medical school or dental school, I observed my family dentist in practice and decided that dentistry was the way to go for me. After attending Oklahoma State University, I went to the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry, graduated in 1983, and then I did my pediatric dental residency at Baylor College of Dentistry from 1983 to 1985. I established my practice here in Tulsa in 1985.
Through our new digital marketing plan, we have seen a market increase in the number of new patients that we’re seeing every month, year over year. One month, for example, we went from 110 new patients the previous year to over 180 new patients in the same month.
Overall, our average is running about 40 to 42% increase, month over month, year over year. The group of people required to implement our new digital marketing plan is immense, starting with a business coach, videographers, photographers, web designers, search engine optimization. Gathering our own in-house team to implement this digital marketing plan been essential in the success that we have seen over the past few months. We have a team established that helps you implement a marketing plan that will hold you accountable, that will make viable and pertinent suggestions on the direction that you need to take your practice to reach the next level.
Back when I graduated from dental school in 1985, nobody advertised. The only marketing that was ethically allowed in everybody’s eyes was mouth to mouth marketing. By choosing to use the Business Coaching for Dentists service, you’re choosing to use a proven turnkey marketing and coaching system that will grow your practice and get you the results that you are looking for.
