Sustaining Your Dental Practice During a Pandemic

Sustaining Your Dental Practice During a Pandemic

The question on many dentist’s minds is how to re-open and operate safely amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

To help you sustain your practice during these uncertain times, Independent Dental shares the latest dental safety equipment on the market. We’re here to help you address your patient’s top concerns and make everyone in your dental office feel more at ease.

Survey Says: Your Patients Want Safety

Recent survey results from DentistryToday reveal that patients consider a dental office’s hygienic practices more important today than before the pandemic. When asked how much attention they would pay to cleanliness and hygiene at their next appointment, patients responded: 

  • More than before: 78.0%
  • About the same: 19.0%
  • Less than before: 3.0%

Growing Your Dental Practice in Times of Uncertainty

Here’s a marketing hack for you: Finding new patients is not always the key to dental practice growth, but rather, keeping the patients you have is what can sustain your practice. By addressing top safety and hygiene concerns, your patients will be more comfortable, your staff will feel more at ease, and your practice can deliver a reassuring experience that keeps those patients coming back.
