Patient Attraction Episode 1241

– Thanks for watching the Patient Attraction Podcast™.

– I’m Colin Receveur, CEO of SmartBox.

– Dentistry has turned into a numbers game for the vast majority of dentists.

– It’s become more about how many patients you see than about how much you make from each visit.

– Numbers games are fine for machines.

– Automated factories can crank out vast numbers of widgets.

– But you’re not a robot, you’re a flesh-and-blood human being.

– Most of your working parts can’t be replaced.

– And bending over the chair hour after hour can take a heavy toll on your back and neck.

– Not to mention that routine cases are boring and use a fraction of your talents.

– I’m not running down routine dental care.

– But it’s about like hiring a Nobel Laureate to write limericks.

– Dentistry should be more than an unending daily grind.

– Some dentists have found the way to make dentistry everything it’s supposed to be.

– One of those dentists is Dr. Ron Receveur of New Albany, Indiana.

– By way of full disclosure, he’s a SmartBox client and my dad.

– Ron had a general practice for many years, but he got tired of the daily grind.

– He spent considerable time and money to find the right ways to make the transformation from routine dental practice to specialty practice.

– He has an associate who handles the general practice side of things, but Ron only works 3 days a week.

– And he handles only the cases he loves to do – dental implants and consultations.

– The practice increased its collections from $1.8 million to $3.4 million in just 4 years.

– He can’t wait to get into the office  on workdays, and he’s usually done by 3 p.m.

– How does that compare with your workweek?

– Now, you might think that Ron is a special case, and that’s right to some extent.

– But he’s decided to share the secrets of how he became the relaxed, happy, fulfilled dentist he is today.

– In conjunction with SmartBox, Ron presented his first Dental Practice Transformation Seminar in May in Louisville, Kentucky.

– The event was more than a success – it was packed with dentists eager to get out of the dental rat race.

– This wasn’t a one-off event.

– Ron Receveur is presenting his Dental Practice Transformation Seminar again in the fall.

– The details are still being worked out, but I’ll keep you posted.

– The reason for telling you about Dr. Ron is to make this point.

– The path to success on your own terms is getting better dental patients.

– I mentioned that Ron is a SmartBox client.

– Here’s what he had to say about working with us.

– “The number of visits to my website is down during the time that I’m collecting a lot more money …

– “… so we’ve extrapolated that information from more visits, less money to less visits, higher-quality patient, more collections. It’s working.”

– Whether you transform your practice into something resembling Ron’s or just want to do more of the cases you love, you need better dental patients.

– SmartBox provides a steady stream of better patients to our dentists.

– They get to focus on actually doing the dentistry rather than riding herd on their practice marketing.

– It’s a success formula that has helped more than 550 dentists on 3 continents succeed on their own terms.

– Your path off the dental rat race runs through SmartBox.
