Re-Think Your Passion for Dentistry
Let’s face it, it’s tough being a dentist. We are not loved. We’re not even really liked by most people. Frankly, many people fear us and even dread going to the dentist.
And yet, visiting our office is one of the most important healthcare appointments a person can make. We know firsthand that good oral health leads to good overall health and a sustained life. We also help people when we improve their self-confidence, which can help them socially, romantically and professionally. The benefits of good oral health cannot be understated.
You’re a Dentist, Not a Marketer
We know all of this, and yet it’s easy to lose sight of it when you’re trying to keep your practice in the black and looking for a way of dramatically increasing your practice revenue.
You may be able to place anesthetic painlessly or extract a tooth like nobody’s business, but when it comes to marketing and creating systems to increase revenue, my guess is that you don’t have a lot of experience. And why should you?
As dentists, it takes us an average of 7-8 years to earn our degree. But how many of those classes were devoted to marketing? Probably none. You’re a dentist, not a marketer. Marketing is a different profession than yours, so don’t feel bad that your experience when it comes to marketing is limited. My hunch is that the average marketing professional’s experience when it comes to filling a tooth is pretty limited as well.
And yet, we need to understand marketing, or at least accept that we have a need for it. For many of us, we need to increase our practice income if we’re ever going to be able to comfortably run our business and refocus our attention on our dentistry.
