Dental Management Survey Reveals Dentists Aren’t Getting Enough New Patients

new-ptsDentists want more new patients!

We asked dentists in our recent dental management survey if they were getting enough new patients.

A clear 66% majority of dentists said No — it would be better if they got more leads.

Another 22% said additional leads would be great, even though they were doing alright.

Only 13% said they got plenty of leads.

“Many of our new patients are still emergency only, and interested in only pain relief. Hopefully we will get back to the committed patient who wants ongoing care.” Texas dentist

“I don’t want leads! I imagine I can look in a phone book and call any number of leads. I want people who want to come see me and have already been prepared by meeting me or by another patient that spoke of me.” California dentist

“What are you supposed to do with a “lead”? Go get ’em and reel them in? Do cardiologists and psychologists need more “leads”? My God, what has dentistry come to?” Illinois dentist

“We’re not getting enough new patients, so we’re starting a dental patient marketing campaign shortly.” New York Dentist

Dentists in our survey are seeing an average of 17 new patients each month.  Answers ranged between 2 and 55 new patients, with the median also at 17.

How about your dental practice? Are you getting enough new patients?
