Build A Thriving Cosmetic Dental Practice: Understanding Your Patient’s Desires
July 25, 2023
A successful cosmetic dental practice goes beyond providing excellent services; it requires understanding what patients truly desire. People are more likely to invest in what they want rather than what they are told they need. By implementing a smile evaluation and asking open-ended questions, dental practices can discover what patients truly want, leading to increased patient satisfaction and the opportunity to grow the practice further.
Read this blog, and explore the importance of understanding patient desires. Learn how enrolling patients into a patient membership/loyalty program such as the Celebrity Smiles Club will significantly contribute to the success of a cosmetic dental practice.
Understand What Your Patient Desires
As cosmetic dentists, our primary goal is to enhance smiles and boost self-confidence in our patients. However, it is crucial to remember that each individual has unique desires and expectations. Using a smile evaluation and asking open-ended questions can help us uncover those desires effectively.
A smile evaluation is a comprehensive process that involves a thorough examination of a patient’s oral health, cosmetic concerns, and overall smile goals. Ask questions to understand what your patient wants. Make it fun when you’re asking your patient what they want their smile to look like.
One fun example. Background: We just had a multi-million dollar lottery.
Scenario: As you are seating your patient, while establishing rapport, getting caught up, with a smile on your face ask:
“Mr. Smith, when you win the lottery this week, what do you want your smile to look like?” Wink.
You are certain to get a smile from your patient when you make the questions fun.
By asking open-ended questions and actively listening to patients, we can delve deeper into their preferences and aspirations.
The Power of Open-Ended Questions
Open-ended questions invite patients to express themselves freely, giving us valuable insights into their desires. Instead of asking yes or no questions, we can inquire about their dream smile, the aspects they wish to improve, or the emotions they associate with their current dental condition.
This approach not only strengthens the dentist-patient relationship but also enables us to tailor personalized treatment plans that align with their wishes.
“People buy what they want, not what they need.”
