Dentists Are Realizing The Power Of Mobile Apps To Keep Their Schedules Full…
Many consider dentistry a luxury and in this economy it can be a challenge to keep overhead low when running a dental office. The other issue is keeping a full schedule to maximize profits. Here’s a quick scenario to put this into perspective.
Let’s imagine Dr. Joe’s dental office has noticed a decline in appointments being scheduled. The only way he knows how to get busy is to take out an advertisement in the newspaper or direct mailings for a few hundred, or thousands of dollars, running some type of promotion. He notices an immediate surge of new appointments and enjoys a full schedule. After a few days the appointments start to dwindle again. He is then forced to place another advertisement, and another, and so on.
This is not the best way to generate new business for a dental office for the high overhead and constant need to advertise to build the practice.
Mobile Apps are a great way for dentists to build their practice by encouraging current clients to schedule appointments and refer their friends.
Now let’s look at what Dr. Joe could have done if he had a Mobile App for his dental practice. After realizing that his schedule has too many openings, he has his receptionist send out a PUSH notification to his current patients through his mobile app. This is essentially a text message sent to his clients within the app itself. It might read something like one of the following:
Joe’s Dental Office: $100 OFF any dental service. Ends 3/6.
Joe’s Dental Office: Refer a friend for $49 new patient exam, x-rays and cleaning. You get FREE whitening for life!
Joe’s Dental Office: $1000 OFF any Invisalign case, with up-front payment. Ends 3/6.
These are just a few ideas that could help you generate business by using your existing client database. You can build a referral business with a simple push notification (our mobile apps offer unlimited push notifications).
Another brilliant idea to help fill an empty schedule is to send a message to fill a cancelled appointment. You might have a client call to cancel their appointment for the following day. Instead of risking that time being left vacant, you can send a push notification to your existing clients saying something like this:
Joe’s Dental Office: Appointment available tomorrow at 3:30 pm. Call now and get $50 OFF any dental service.
You are more likely to fill that opening and still make a profit, otherwise the chair might not be filled. These are just a few ways we’ve seen successful dental practices utilize the power of mobile apps.
