How To Get Your Dental Practice Great Reviews

 

When people are trying to find a dental practice one of the first things they’ll look at is reviews. They’ll want to see what other people have to say about the practices in your area. If your practice has rave reviews, then they’ll set up an appointment with you. How can you ensure that you get great reviews? These are a few suggestions you’ll want to try.

 

Remind Patients To Write Reviews

 

Many of your patients lead busy lives. Even if they intend to write a review, they might wind up forgetting about this by the time that they get home. That’s why it can be helpful to send out some gentle reminders encouraging people to leave a review.

 

If you have your patient’s email address on file, you can send them out an email thanking them for their visit. In the email, you can ask them to leave a review for you. Not everyone will write a review, but some people will really appreciate the reminder.

 

Let People Know Where They Can Leave Reviews

 

Not all of your patients regularly write reviews online. Some people may not even know where they should leave a review. If you let them know where to write reviews, then you’ll see a lot more reviews crop up.

 

If you want people to leave reviews for you on Google, you should let them know that. If you’re hoping for more Yelp reviews, you should mention that as well. Sometimes, you have to ask for what you want if you want to make sure you get it.

 

Offer Incentives

 

If you want to guarantee that you get lots of reviews, why not offer patients some sort of incentive for leaving a review for your practice? For example, you could offer a discount on a cosmetic procedure, like whitening, in exchange for a positive review.

 

If you do choose to offer incentives, you won’t be able to offer them exclusively to people that leave positive reviews. You’ll have to give them to anyone that writes a review, positive or negative. With that said, it’s very unlike that people will write a negative review in order to take advantage of a promotion like this.

 

Go Above And Beyond

 

A lot of people won’t be motivated to write reviews if your service isn’t anything out of the ordinary. If you really want to see positive comments, you’re going to have to be willing to go the extra mile. Do whatever it takes to make sure that your patients are satisfied when they leave your practice.

 

If you work hard to ensure the satisfaction of your patients, your hard work will be noticed. A lot of people will choose to write a review to thank you and your staff for all of your hard work.

 

It isn’t always going to be easy to get your dental practice great reviews. A lot of your patients won’t bother to review your practice at all. Thankfully, these suggestions will help you to get the reviews you’re looking for.
