Gum disease affects more than half of adults in America, which isn’t any surprise to dentists or periodontists alike. This statistic makes periodontal treatment vital for any dental practice and reinforces the importance of successful periodontists. Do you ever struggle with patient case acceptance for gum disease treatment or feel like when you try to educate your patients on proper oral care that it just goes through one ear and out the other? Our dental consultants can work with any practice to help increase your patient acceptance cases, bring in repeat patients for the continued care that they need, and for networking to increase patient referrals. Pair your expertise as a periodontist with the marketing and business expertise of the team at Bryant Consultants through our new package of periodontal consulting services.
As a dentist or periodontist, the oral health decline among Americans is not news to you. It is apparent that many patients, and even physicians, still do treat the mouth as a separate unit apart from the rest of the body. We know that gum disease can increase the risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Patients even get fed this information during their dental appointments, but is that enough to get them to understand the full ramifications of poor oral health and neglecting treatment for their gum disease?
Periodontists today have to worry about more than just treating gum disease
These days, to run a thriving periodontal practice, just providing tremendous care is not enough. You also need to have the business and marketing savvy to stand out in a competitive field. A start-up periodontal practice can be a challenge to undertake all on your own, especially if you do not have networking skills and a good referral base to start. Unless you are purchasing a periodontal practice from a retiring periodontist, you’re basically starting at ground zero. Even so, purchasing an existing periodontal practice still is a new start for you.
Add in the usual dilemmas that vex practice owners—stagnancy in productivity and/or income, staffing problems, and scheduling issues—and you can see how a periodontist may benefit from professional advice from our dental consultants. Because they specialize in advanced techniques, and often still are seeking continuing education as part of a commitment to lifelong learning and providing elite services, periodontists usually lack the time or training to commit fully to managing the business aspects of their practices.
