Sending personal emails with a simple thank you notes, making phone calls or text messaging about their appointments or simply making a follow up to patients are some of the ways to build good relationships with them.
Denville, NJ (PRWEB) November 19, 2012
When it comes to offering patient forms, announcing hours of operations or scheduling appointment, websites are very useful tools. However, it cannot provide the personal touch that only comes with person-to-person contact. Patients want to know their doctor cares, and dentists can offer a critical element of customer service with new done-for-you technology such as dental newsletter.
“If you’re going to put much effort into maintaining contact with patients, why not do it with email, print, phone and text messaging? Why not do it with new, done-for-you technologies like Instant Dental Newsletter?” Nitin Chhoda, a private practice marketing expert, said.
Many dentists overwhelm visitors with information on their website. They spend more time and effort making their website popular when in fact they should be more focused on retaining patients and attracting new ones. Sending personal emails with a simple thank you notes, making phone calls or text messaging about their appointments or simply making a follow up to patients are some of the ways to build good relationships with them.
“The ability to leverage different modes of communication – email, direct mail, text messaging and phone calls work best for patients,” said Chhoda. “Software systems allow dentists to communicate with past, present and prospective patients on a consistent and personal level.”
Chhoda has assisted thousands of small practices in increasing patient numbers with the use of software systems that utilize email, phone calls and text messaging. A website is a useful tool, but it’s the personal contact that patients crave and to which they respond.
