There are a few things you can do to make your orthodontic practice be different from the others.
If the orthodontist you see is treating you as a transaction, there is any reason that you cannot searching for a new orthodontist. People will keep buying their services because they have a relationship with the orthodontist. If there’s no motive in the business other than the thought of money, it is unlikely that there’s a justification for you to be any different over any other orthodontist. If you can demonstrate that you are concerned about your patients’ health and well-being, on top of their money in the long run, you’ll be able to keep the patients for longer.
If you’re changing a patient’s dental work, it is your job to put the patients’ needs ahead of your own. Knowing what they believe is most appropriate will result in a more pleasant patient-doctor experience for them, and will make them feel more comfortable to be their orthodontist for a longer period of time.
The success of the practice of orthodontics is built on trust between the doctor and patient.
