Futuredontics, the parent company of 1-800-DENTIST, recently released the “Top 5 Reasons Patients Choose a Dentist,” the first in a new series of infographics designed to help dental practices improve patient acquisition and retention. Designed to be easily shared by dental professionals, “Top 5 Reasons Patients Choose a Dentist” is a downloadable PDF that offers surprising new data on the factors patients consider when selecting a dental care provider. It provides dentists and practice management professionals with a quick guide to what really matters to dental patients in 2017, and it identifies problem areas that cause patients to switch practices.
The infographic was developed based on research drawn from Futuredontics’ exclusive national survey of over 3,000 dental patients. Among the findings highlighted is the critical role dental insurance plays in patient acquisition, the importance of advanced technology to high-earning patients, and how dentist-centric scheduling hurts patient retention.
“We’re very excited to launch our new series of infographics for dental professionals,” said Futuredontics president Fred Joyal. “As the people behind the 1-800-DENTIST patient referral program, we have something no one else in the industry offers—over 30 years of original research on patient behavior. Infographics are the ideal way to share this information with busy professionals. Our goal is to publish at least one new infographic a month.”
