There are many ways to increase the value of your dental practice. But what works, and what doesn’t? Maybe you are looking to sell your practice in the near future and trying to maximize its value? Here are a few ways you can improve your practice in a matter of months.
Build a Website
Many prospective patients before visiting a dentist will more than likely check out the practice online. If the website is sharp, good looking and documents the services that you offer, the visitor is more likely to take the leap and visit the practice. Make sure that the website is packed full of useful information so that the website ranks in Google. We would also recommend adding patient sign up forms allowing people to book appointments and schedule treatments from the comfort of their own home.
We do admit that measuring the success of social media is hard. But, when you connect with patients on mediums such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, you are more likely to form a bond with the patient which will see them return to the practice time and time again. You can also visit websites such as DentReps.com to look for new employees to help you to hire for the right fit at the first time of asking. This will allow you to scout out new opportunities and establish relationships with some upcoming dentists.
Encourage Patients to Review Your Practice
In the travel industry, we know that people review places they have been to on TripAdvisor. Nowadays, people will review their dentist online, so it is essential you offer an excellent patient experience from the moment each patient enters the practice. Failure to do so could lead to people writing negative reviews online which will reduce the number of patients that come through the doors, as new prospective patients will often take a look at reviews online. If all they see is bad reviews, then this will undoubtedly put them off visiting. Make sure you build a reputation of offering excellent service.
Dental Office Design
Renovating your current premises may not seem like the best way to spend vital cash, but creating a space where patients can wait in comfort for their appointment will go a long way to making them feel relaxed about their visit to the dental practice, making them more likely to come back. Plus, if you own the premises in which you practice, any improvements you do make will increase the value of the building.
Hire Employees of Value
When hiring new employees, make sure you hire correctly at the first time of asking. By investing time and resources in the recruitment process, you can build up a formidable team that will offer a fantastic patient experience that will result in patients returning to the practice.

These are just some of the ways that you can improve the value of your dental practice. If you build a website, maintain a social media presence, encourage positive reviews and redesign your premises, you will quickly increase the value of your practice.
