In this episode of The Dental Marketer podcast we discuss one very, extremely important tactic that needs to be done when shouting your brand (and yourself) out to your community. This especially applies to you if you are a general dentist looking to get into the surgery field, or looking to increase your dental knowledge and become a specialist, or if you’re already a specialist….so listen up!
So many times we hear that it is essential to educate the patient. This has been said in possibly every single piece of “dental marketing” material out there! BUT…. What about educating your local dentists? Educating the local dentists in your community is not only a highly-effective way to increase your brand-awareness but it is also a way to increase new patient referrals and create pipelines. If you find dentists in your area who feel they know it all and do NOT want to be educated or feel they don’t need it then….. would you even want to work with someone like that?! So make it an effort to educate your local dentists about what you do, how you do it, and more. Network and you’ll see not only will new patients start flowing in BUT you will increase brand-awareness and patients will start looking for you directly as well.
