A common goal of nearly every dental practice is getting more yes to treatment. If you feel like you’re getting people in the door but falling short when working to convince patients to undergo cosmetic or restorative dentistry procedures, align with the experts at Independence Dental DSO for case presentation coaching. Tweaking your language and the order in which information is delivered can make all the difference.
We all know what’s good for us but that doesn’t mean we’re all willing to invest in it, whether the topic up for debate is nutrition, exercise, or dental care. Your patients might be fully aware of what they need to improve their oral health, but they have no intention of making these needs a priority, whether they’re deterred by cost, dental anxiety, or the time required to get the work done. It’s up to you, their dentist, to convince them to say yes to important, necessary treatment.

Case presentation coaching ties into the needs of modern dental patients, respecting individual needs, from budget constraints to worries about being in the dentist’s chair. Making true connections with patients is what determines whether treatment receives a yes and you go on to deliver the oral health care they need most.
Along with the nuances of case presentation coaching, additional care and effort is necessary on the part of your practice and team to make patients feel good about their oral health decisions:
Convincing patients to get the dental work they need is not always an easy task. For every patient who eagerly says yes to treatment, there are just as many who drag their feet. When you experience more rejection than acceptance to treatment plans, it’s time to find out how case presentation coaching can improve your treatment rates.
