Patient Retention in Dentistry

November 6, 2018by Lisa Philp

Attracting new patients to a dental practice is not the only way to be successful. Many dental practitioners believe that having new patients equates to a prosperous dental practice; unfortunately, this isn’t always the case! It is essential to build relationships with your current patients too. This is just as important as finding new patients to increase your revenue.

Building a relationship that lasts between the patient and a dental practitioner is what we call ‘patient retention’. In your practice, one of the many ways to increase  profit is through patient retention. It is considered to be one of the most crucial components of a dental practices’ success.

Here at TGNA, we offer training modules that can help your practice improve its efficiency, performance, and productivity. One of our training modules focuses on patient retention, specifically in the hygiene department. This module is intended for your entire dental team and the training usually lasts for two days. You and your staff will learn proven techniques to ensure your patients are consistently coming back for their hygiene schedules.

Getting your practice to the next level includes maintaining recall systems and patient retention programs. Learn more about how our services can help with patient retention for your dental practice. Contact our team in Burlington, Ontario.
