What do you want to change going into your “new normal”? For many people, their goals are to spend more time with family once returning to work, exercise more than before, take advantage of face time with loved ones, and so on. But what does it mean for your business?
Dentistry has certainly been affected in terms of the damage from COVID-19, and we will continue to feel the effects for a while. People have lost their jobs, which means losing not only their dental insurance, but also their means of paying patient portions, deductibles, and copays.
Some people are scared to go out of their homes, regardless that some states are lifting the stay-at-home orders. Others have been destabilized and they want to feel as much comfort as life will afford them right now. This means adapting to how patients want to be treated and setting up a comfortable and healthy environment within the best of your ability upon reopening.
Here are a few tips to help your patients feel more at ease coming back into your office:
If you don’t inform them, they may find another dentist that is offering convenience tools, or make them feel more comfortable about venturing out to the dental office again.
In order to do this, you must have a communication system. Your staff cannot call every patient individually and inform them of the steps you are taking (unless you have less than 100 patients).
DentiMax is offering several options at a discounted price (or even free right now) so you can serve your patients well. Don’t wait, take action now and be ready for your patients.
