Episode 77: Dental Practice Marketing - The Power of Patient Reviews With Dr. Shawn Van De Vyver

Start Your Dental Practice

As a dental practice owner trying to grow your business, you’re always on the lookout for new ways to get patients in the door. But let’s be honest, with so many options, it can be just a little bit overwhelming. I’ve even experienced this myself, with my business DentistMetrics. How many times have you heard the following from a friend or colleague. “You need to be on Facebook.” “You need to be running Google ads.” “You need to be on Instagram… Snapchat.. Or the latest marketing platform.” Of course, many of these tools and strategies are great for bringing in more business, but in always searching for the ‘next best thing’ we often neglect the simple path to what actually works. One of the things that just works but is often overlooked, is patient reviews. Which is why I’m excited to share today’s conversation with Dr. Shawn Van De Vyver who previously joined us on Episode 35 of the podcast. Dr. Shawn is the Founder of Great Lakes Dentistry and a super successful entrepreneur in the dental space. And he’s cracked the code on how to get patient reviews without spending hours of your time with the process. I think you’ll find our conversation eye opening when it comes to the power of patient reviews. [su_note note_color="#028000 " text_color="#ffffff " radius="5"] Want to get more reviews? You'll love today's bonus: 13 ways to get more patient reviews. Get the checklist here! [/su_note] Here are a few things you'll discover in today's episode Dr. Shawn’s favorite optimization tweaks for your dental practice marketing. The dreaded “dental tax” and why it hurts dentists. Why you should always be thinking of ways to automate your practice. The “low hanging fruit” effect of patient reviews. Why Shawn decided to build the dental software he needed himself. The myth of the “magic bullet” and how to stay focused. Free Episode Bonus A huge thanks to Dr. Shawn for coming back on the show and keeping us to date with how to automate and optimize your dental practice. As Dr. Shawn mentioned, while there’s no magic bullet in any business, there are some things you can do that will add considerable value overtime. Getting more patient reviews is one of them. As a bonus for today, Shawn has generously offered his 13 Ways To Get More Patient Reviews Checklist as well as a VERY special LIFETIME discount to his new dental software. If you’re looking to get more reviews for your practice and avoid the “dental tax” this might be perfect for you. Click here to learn how to get more patient reviews. Quotes: “You shouldn’t have to pay more for the same tools.. Just because you’re a dentist.” - Dr Shawn Van De Vyver “It doesn’t have to be a formal thing.. You can plant the seed for patients to leave a review. It starts with the office culture.” -Dr Shawn Van De Vyver Resources: AutoFrontOffice Great Lakes Dentistry   Support The Show: Without you, Ambitious Dentists, this should wouldn’t exist.
