You only get one chance to make a good first impression. So whether you are looking into a new practice or wanting to upgrade your existing one, here are some simple things to ask yourself that can make your dental practice or healthcare clinic more appealing.
Do my clients know where the entry is to my practice?
Is there a clear sign that identifies your brand so new clients know where you are? Could you benefit from upgrading your doorway, outside lighting, signage or other exterior areas?
When my clients come, is the seating comfortable?
Does your sitting area reflect your desire to bring comfort to your clients? Are there changes you can make to your seats or furniture that allows your patients to sit comfortably as they wait?
Is my reception area clearly identifiable?
When your clients come in, do they feel welcomed by the reception area? Is it clearly visible? Does it feel institutional or friendly?
How does it smell in my practice?
Are my waiting clients smelling outdated furniture, magazines, or other items that would benefit from an update? What about in your office? Could you rearrange and de-clutter to keep things fresh?
Do I have enough reading material?
Not only are magazines great ways to help clients pass time, but pamphlets are excellent ways to keep your clients informed. Do you have a billboard that lists your specialties, prices, or other important information?
What comforting elements do I have for my clients?
Lighting, plants, and art are all examples of small ways you can create an ambiance in your practice. More and more, offices are introducing home-like environments to create a sense of comfort for their visitors.
