There are many ways to get your website ranking higher in dentistry today.

You’ve probably heard plenty of SEO strategies – even some that “break the rules”.

But there’s one method that’s highly underused in the industry…

And that’s getting your patients to do it for you.

Chances are they’re already talking about your dental office – and many potential patients are searching the internet for their next appointment.

Well, by implementing this powerful SEO strategy we’re about to cover, you’ll have a high-converting SEO presence courtesy of your customer.

Showing us how to properly us this strategy to grow your online presence is Dr. Leonard Tau.

Dr. Leonard F. Tau maintains a full time private practice in Northeast Philadelphia focusing on general, cosmetic, reconstructive and implant dentistry.

He’s a wiz when it comes to the patient experience, and is about to show you one of the most cost-effective ways to grow your Google rankings in dentistry today.

Here are a few things you’ll discover in today’s episode:

  • How to get 40-60 new patients to your practice (without taking insurance, charging low fees, or asking for referrals)
  • What happens to your conversions online (PPC and paid ads) when you don’t have reviews
  • How to get patients to leave your a positive (and honest) review
  • Why “reputation management” is the wrong way to approach reviews for your business
  • What sites online matter most for reviews (Dr. Tau stumped me on this, can you guess why?)
  • The “buying cycle” that takes place when a potential client looks for you (and how to avoid being invisible online)
  • What “citations” are and how they help Google (and your patients) to trust you
  • Why most “SEO Experts” are ruining your reputation online (and why you don’t want to pay these people a single cent of your hard earned money)
  • The ONLY question you should ever ask right after your patient has gotten out of the chair and approached the front desk after their appointment
  • The right way to ask your patients to leave you an honest review (even when life gets in the way)
  • The word you want to AVOID when asking for reviews (and the word you should use instead)
  • How to incentivize members on your team to explode reviews for your practice

 

Free Episode Bonus:

Dr. Tau didn’t want to leave you empty handed.

Ever heard this?

"Intelligence is your ability to adapt to change." - Stephen Hawkings

It's as true in life as it is in your dental practice...

In fact, it's the practices that don't adapt to new "intelligent" technologies and methods that fade away.

But, by knowing what's going on in your business (at a highly detailed level), you know where to focus your attention to get more patients (and revenue) to your practice.

Meet Curtis Marshall.

He and the Dental Intel team equip dental practices with the tools to adapt to change – and avoid fading away like many other practices who fail.

When you have a system behind you (like their "Intelligent Board") smart enough to know where to double-down on your efforts, you can make informed decisions that multiply your time and money.

Want to see what your dental practice looks like under the hood? Get your own snapshot (completely free) courtesy of Dental Intel.
 
Click here or visit startyourdentalpractice.com/bonus to access this now.

Here are a few things you'll discover in today's episode:

  • How to become the number 1 dentist in a specific area your target market lives in
  • Why you should use a secret word (like Oklahoma) to keep those around you sane
  • What to look for to project your dental practice’s growth with exact precision
  • The real-life “crystal ball” (that any dentist can use and access) to know exactly how to be a better clinician
  • A huge-downside to technology in the dental field that’s greatly overlooked
  • How to find balance between being CEO, a good business person, and offering great patient services (without losing money and diminishing profits)
  • How to avoid getting charged thousands by consultants who “help” you find where you should focus in your business
  • Why reports are just like driving a car forward while looking in the rear-view mirror
  • The pitfall most dental practice owners fall into when you stop measuring every aspect of your business
  • The four main parts of a dental practice that you MUST understand

 

Free Episode Bonus:

If you wanted to see your dental practice on the "Intelligent Board", you'd normally have to pay a sign up fee and sign up for Dental Intel's service.

(which still completely worth it, in my opinion)

But Curtis made an offer I haven't heard anywhere else to listeners of the show.

So to get a look at your business on the "Intelligent Board" with zero up-front cost or need to sign up, then here's what you need to do:

Click here and let me know you're interested.

You'll get a response from me with directions for how to take advantage of this before they decide to stop.

There’s a huge issue when it comes to finances that almost every dentist will have to deal with.

And knowing how to handle this can be the difference between saving hundreds of thousands of dollars a year…

Or being on the radar of the IRS.

That difference:

Having the right CPA or accountant.

With so many options out there (and sharks wanting your money), it can be intimidating to know the right way to handle your books.

Here are a few things you’ll discover in today’s episode:

  • What you can expect from a dental accountant or dental CPA (and why they exist in the first place)
  • What exactly is (and isn’t) a dental CPA
  • The number 1 reason why you should avoid a “generalist” CPA (that can cost you tons and puts the CPA in a position to NOT communicate with you)
  • Why it’s nearly impossible to decipher a good CPA from a bad CPA
  • The 5 things to consider when you’re looking to hire a CPA for your dental practice
  • Who would you need to know before you get involved with a dental accountant or dental CPA
  • How to avoid getting steered into crazy situations by this specific type of financial predator
  • How they can be a part of your career long-term

 

Limited Time Offer:

Getting your business finances in order shouldn’t be complicated and full of the runaround.

As a listener of Start Your Dental Practice, I’d like to offer a free 15 minute consultation to see how we can help your practice and answer any questions you have…

But I can’t do it forever, so I won’t be taking any of these beyond December 15th.
