After COVID-19 ran its course through the dental implant industry, many practices believed they could return to “business as usual” and use the same tactics to convert prospects and win cases. However, the industry has changed dramatically, including how you attract prospects and get a “Yes!”
In fact, the gap between implant lead and implant patient is wider than you think. Many dental practices underestimate this gap, mistakenly assuming that a call or office visit means they’ve nailed the sale. You can’t assume this in a post-COVID world, and too many implant practices find themselves with plenty of leads but few patients.
The Power of VPA’s
This happens because implant practices try to do all the grunt work of convincing leads to choose them. They don’t have a systematized method of bringing in qualified leads, so they end up working harder and not smarter. That’s why a Virtual Patient Advocate is their most powerful weapon. A VPA’s job is to find qualified leads, ensure that each prospect is financially and emotionally committed to implant treatment, and send them to you. Tons of implant practices across the country have found excellent results by partnering with VPA’s.
We’ve compiled three articles that all show you how VPA’s can serve your practice.
