Case Study: Bought An Existing Practice

Dr. Roy Jennings


Dr. Jennings purchased a practice from a retiring dentist. He didn’t want to change the culture of the practice too much and alienate the current patient base. His main objective was steady growth that would bring in 15-20 new patients a month. 

He wanted to target families in his local area to help bring down the average age of his patient base. Looking at the demographics of his area this was a group we knew we could be successful reaching.

We put together a branding package and a user-friendly website that would communicate the culture of the practice and help guide potential patients to the services they sought out.

After the initial build out we put together an online package utilizing SEO, PPC, online display ads, and social media advertising. Our target was 25-44-year-old mothers. 

In month three we were delivering over 20 new patients a month that was coming exclusively from the marketing efforts.

Update: Entering his second year with Dental Inbound,  Dr. Jennings is consistently receiving 30 quality new patients each month and has brought down the average patient age of the practice by 15 years!

We pulled patient profiles and created a responsive website geared towards families. and began to market through online sources and direct mail.

Case Study: Multiple Locations

Carolina’s Dental Center

Their objective was to increase their market presence for their multiple practices. We restructured their marketing plan and established clear goals of success. Through our media contacts and vendor evaluations, we recognized opportunities for them to acquire new patients and the best value for their marketing dollars.

We started by tracking their current marketing phone calls and helped them to identify a need for staff efficiency. Through their staff efficiency grader, we concluded that their conversions on the phone needed improvement. The doctor made it a priority to get his staff the proper training and also incorporated incentives for staff conversion percentages.

After the training, they began to see significantly more new patients come through the door. We began working on their online presence as well as magazine, radio and print campaigns.  Their marketing has been hugely successful because of the investment in the market and training to their staff.

The results have been over the top. In one year they doubled revenue and have seen as many as 300+ new patients in a month.

Case Study: Start-Up

New Town Dentistry

As a start-up practice, they were limited with marketing dollars and needed to start developing new patients immediately. We designed a website and SEO program to help them be identified online.

We then identified grassroots opportunities they could execute themselves. From that point, we looked at affordable local advertising that kept them within their budget but would be the most effective at providing new patients.

In the first three months, they have seen double-digit growth in their new patient base resulting in increased revenue and more marketing dollars to invest.

Case Study: Transitional Practice

Park Cedar Dentistry

Like most practices at some point, one doctor begins to cut back hours and phase themselves out of the practice. In transition, the doctor taking on a bigger role wanted to bring in more new patients as they had just hired an associate.

We helped them transition from the national dental marketing agency they were working with that had template designs and a limited approach. We evaluated their market and saw a significant opportunity for them to increase their patient base.

We set up an in-office dental savings plan and promoted it through an aggressive online campaign including SEO, PPC, and Social Media.

In the first month they saw a significant influx of new patients, tripled their web conversions and their existing patient recall was at its highest in five years.

Case Study: Product Focus

Denture World

When we sat down with Dr. Merrill to do our consult we discovered the doctor primarily was interested in bringing in more denture cases.

We pulled a patient profile along with an opportunity map. We discovered her local area not only had a higher percentage of 55+ individuals but also had a high index of people not going to the dentist. This created an opportunity to advertise to those people and get them in for a check-up and a fitting for dentures.

The results were the largest they had ever seen! With an average investment of $3,000/month, they see an average of 20 new denture patients a month!
