There are many things that a private practice owner should have especially with this fast changing world. However, if there is one thing that a dental practitioner should have above all else, it’s not the staff, or newest technique, or piece of equipment. It’s having complete contact information of all his/her patients, which most of the practice owners are lacking. Nitin Chhoda, a private practice marketing expert discusses more. He just recently released this information to his website last August 2012.

Keeping complete information available for doctors and other medical professionals can produce referrals.

“No professional should overlook a method of maintaining contact with patients,” said Chhoda. “A phone call, email, text messaging or website are the recently main tools or ways to have regular contact with patients. Having the patients' address and contact number is not enough. Dentists, or any practitioner in particular, should always take note that having a complete information will be very useful especially the year 2012 ends.”

These past few years, people live in a hectic schedule. Everything is always an instant. Having a complete record of every patient provides flexibility for contacting clients in the manner they find most convenient. Many patients have avoided traditional landlines but use mobile communications instead which can take variety of forms. Keeping complete information available for doctors and other medical professionals as soon as possible can produce referrals. The more referrals, the more early a private practice can grow.

Essential information for each patient includes their name, mailing address and email, along with their home and work phone numbers, cell phone number and website if they have one. It provides dentists with multiple opportunities to contact patients via regular mail, email and SMS text messaging, or by phone and even dental newsletter,

The information can be obtained through verbal means or through patient information forms. It should be noted though that patients provide such information only in a way they understand that their information will be protected with the highest level of confidentiality.

It’s vital that patients understand the benefit of providing the information or they won’t do it. With identity theft running rampant, it’s essential that clients know their information will be protected with the highest level of confidentiality.
