Commit to Complete Patient Satisfaction

March 12, 2018 Mary Osborne RDH

In life, there are few things that are truly a ‘guarantee.’ This word has been thrown around in sales speak for eons, but it’s also an empowering tool by which to build your dental practice. You may not be able to control the outcome of every aspect of your patient care. On the other hand, you can definitely commit to always going the extra mile to secure complete satisfaction.

What is a Guarantee in Dentistry?

Your practice culture should be defined verbally or in writing through your vision and mission. It should also be held as the unspoken, consistent values you communicate to staff and patients on a daily basis. You don’t need a cheesy catchphrase beneath your practice logo saying, ‘100% satisfaction or we’ll completely redo your dental work’ to make your service a guarantee.

But what does a guarantee look like in dentistry and why is it beneficial? Think of a guarantee as the powerful conviction that you stand behind your work and will continuously strive for exceptional service. If your motto is to exceed expectations and you make that clear to your patients, then you will go to any lengths to do exactly that.

Commit to Complete Satisfaction

A guarantee is an ethic of personal responsibility. It is your integrity and it will speak for itself in a hundred ways if you follow through. It means you will take the time to determine what satisfaction looks like for your patients. The main benefit of this is the development of a rock solid service reputation. You won’t have to go to the yellow pages for explicit ‘we guarantee it’ marketing. Word of mouth will snowball as your confidence in what you offer translates to how comfortable your staff and patients feel recommending you.

Excellence is a rarity fueled by integrity. Develop your patients’ and team members’ pride in your work by incorporating a guarantee into your dental practice culture.
