How many dentists have sent referrals to your endodontics practice in the past two years? Thirty, forty, fifty, or more? How large is that number compared with the total number of general dentists, periodontists, prosthodontists and oral surgeons in your practice area? To answer that, you need to know how many of these dentists are in your geographic area. And if you’re like many endodontists, you don’t have the data you need to answer that.
If you did have that data, you’d probably reach the same conclusions many of your endo peers have reached: They are only getting referrals from a very small percentage of potential referring dentists. They are only scratching the surface.
Are you leaving money on the table?
Don’t overlook an easy way to get more patient referrals. Professional referral newsletters are a highly effective, professional and ethical way to introduce yourself to each and every one of them – and to stay in touch in a meaningful and memorable way. If you’re not sending a newsletter to every potential referring dentist in your practice area, you are leaving money on the table.
What is a referral generating newsletter?
The most effective referral newsletters for endodontists include digests of the most recent research and findings in your field. These include summaries of articles from peer reviewed journals. WPI Communications’ newsletters are edited by highly respected leaders in endodontics.
