Dental practice marketing with a smile

Oct. 11, 2010
Creating a brand strategy for your practice is not only a great way to attract attention, but also a great way for people to recognize and remember your logo.

As nice as it would be to open a practice with no assembly required, growing a business requires hard work and a good marketing strategy. New doctors are popping up all the time, and the competition between dentists is on the rise. In order to keep your practice functioning successfully, it’s important to remember that your dental practice is still a business, and when it comes to marketing, it needs to be treated just as appropriately.

Currently, about 50% of the American population does not access dental care on a regular basis. It’s not uncommon for people to fear the dentist’s office, or to simply procrastinate or deny an annual checkup is needed. Newsletters are an especially great way to get the public comfortable with you. Your professional profile can accompany client testimonials and success stories to really grab the attention of your target market and build your practice’s credibility.

Personalized newsletters and postcards are a great way to reach out to individual clients and neighborhoods. Color postcards offer a creative way to advertise teeth-whitening services. Having before and after whitening pictures on the postcard may be what captures your next customer. People also like having something they can look at repeatedly and put up on their refrigerator, where it’s ready whenever they need it. Promotional items such as magnets and stickers are an effective way of keeping your practice in plain sight.

Creating a brand strategy for your practice is not only a great way to attract attention, but also a great way for people to recognize and remember your logo on any of the various promotional items you send. By integrating products such as personalized letterhead, envelopes, and business cards, you’ll be creating an image for your practice to enhance the message you want your practice to send.

Using print products to help market your business will also give you a step up on the competition. Providing promotional items to current and future clients shows that your practice is committed to its clientele, and gives the impression that you are confident and established in the dental profession. Reputation is everything, especially when it comes to attracting new patients.

When looking for a company to help with your marketing and printing needs, look for one that will provide you with quality products at a low cost. You’ll have to spend some money to promote your practice, but remember you’re making a worthwhile investment in your business’ future. It’s important to find a company that has built its own reputation through excellent customer service and superior design services.

Some print businesses, like Printing Solutions Arizona, make the branding process less stressful with an easy-to-use online design tool and a design staff ready to help every step of the way. They offer quality products at reasonable prices and tend to each individual client’s needs. They’ll help you give your audience what it wants and bring business to your door, all with a smile.
