HOW TO PROMOTE WELLNESS IN YOUR DENTAL PRACTICE

Updated: Jan 30

One of the core foundations of any dental practice is growth. However, you can't grow if your patients are coming in and aren't getting the treatment that they need. The key is to promote wellness rather than only focusing on treating sickness.

Listen to Cris Duval, RDH and CEO of The LifeGuard Approach on the Dental Marketing Growth podcast share her radical perspective, and discover how you can take the same approach in your dental practice.


PATIENTS ARE FOCUSING ON WELLNESS


While some patients still see cleanings and regular dental visits as unnecessary, many are starting to understand the importance of regular care and the connection to their overall health. According to a recent survey by Delta Dental:


  • 94% of adults are planning to visit the dentist in 2022

  • 92% of adults and 96% of parents agree that maintaining oral health is essential to protecting their overall health

  • 90% (9 out of 10) of adults are interested in learning about oral health's critical connection to overall health


One critical reason for people to learn more about these connections is that adults and children have plenty of personal experience dealing with dental issues. In fact, 1 in 5 (20%) adults believe that an oral health issue they experienced directly affected their overall health.


READY TO BECOME A LIFEGUARD FOR YOUR PATIENTS?


Dental hygienists are the front line of defense when it comes to oral patient care. Their job is to understand their patient's health from a comprehensive standpoint --- which will require asking probing questions, taking extra time to perform lifesaving exams, and educating patients on the connection between oral health and creating a long, happy healthspan.
