Bulletproof Dental Practice Podcast Episode 26

Hosts: Dr. Peter Boulden & Dr. Craig Spodak

Guest: Stuart Faught / Founder of PatientSnap.com

Key Takeaways:

  • Online reviews are crucial to the success of your dental practice, they can also be very hard to obtain.
  • Make sure every patient receives a text message right after their appointment asking for review and giving links to post a review.
  • Key platforms are Yelp, Google, and on your website.
  • 88% of patients are currently checking online reviews before going into a practice.
  • There’s a democratization of small business; people have a much greater power to make or break your business.
  • Shoot for getting the most stars and the best reviews.
  • Cadence and consistency are important. Look at your review request process as an evergreen strategy and not a quick fix.
  • Respond to every negative review, and at least some of the positive reviews. Every review response is another marketing opportunity.
  • Even the best practices will eventually get a bad review. An occasional bad review actually authenticates all your positive reviews.
  • Use bad reviews as a way to get patient feedback and an opportunity to keep them as loyal customers.
  • Reviews translate your culture, can add value to the business’s sale price, and attract top-performing talent to your office.
  • Best practice:
    • Doctors have say-so on which patients should get request to review
    • Have one person accountable for actually sending
    • Use technology to send a text
    • Ask screening questions first; ask if experience was positive or negative
    • If they’re positive they’re sent links to review on Yelp, Google, or website
    • If negative they are sent to feedback comment box and assure them you’ll work to make things right
  • It has to be easy or they’re not going to do it.
  • Target conversion rates is at least 10% of requests.
  • Don’t spam, patients shouldn’t be asked to write a review more than once every six months.
  • Make reviews fun, get your team excited and reward your team and patients for their efforts.
  • Review add-ins are also key; work to get patients to check in, add a picture, and interact with the review platform as much as possible.
  • We’re just barely scratching the surface with “social proof.” Everything is moving toward video and authentication.
  • PatientSnap.com is offering a 30-day trial to listeners who try out the demo.
