Wow! A November 2015 consumer survey by Futuredontics found that while much has changed in the dental profession over the past 20 years, one thing has remained constant: The importance of word-of-mouth dental referrals. In a survey of 3,000 dental patients nationwide, 84% of the patients said they ask for personal recommendations from family, friends, and co-workers when they search for a new dentist. This is up from 74% in 2013. The reason could be that there is a proliferation of “chain” dental offices and increased marketing in large neighborhoods so it is becoming more difficult for patients to sort through all the options with confidence. Patients are being more proactive in asking others for advice. They will likely visit our website or social media pages prior to calling, to do their own due diligence. We are often complimented on the content of our website and blog.
If you are happy with our care, you can do your friends, family, and co-workers a favor by looking for opportunities to tell them what you like about our dental practice and why you remain loyal patients!
“I love working with the friends, family, children, and co-workers of my patients,” says Dr. Alexander of Boynton Beach, FL. “Our dental family is growing, and as more of you have had your restorative needs met, we have time to spend getting to know new patients and improving their oral health, function, and smile appearance to optimal levels like yours. Even if your referred patients only need regular cleanings and exams, we are delighted to serve them. The highest compliment you can give us is to refer someone special like you.”
Our goal is to exceed the expectations of every patient with loving kindness, personalized attention, and service. The respect we have for you is extended to our professional passion for honesty, integrity, and disclosure of all information that helps you make decisions that are right for you. We are here to help you meet your goals, and help you understand what could be your preferred dental future.
Most dentists are so busy they don’t take the time to thoroughly diagnose and explain conditions that will lead to the need for extensive dental restorations in the future. Dr. Jamie Alexander is one of the nation’s comprehensive care oriented dentists who help patients see and understand the conditions in their mouth that will result in deterioration of teeth and periodontal tissues. He is also one of Florida’s most prepared dentists to solve complex oral health problems. So, if you hear someone complaining about the problems in their mouth that have built up or gone unsolved, you can recommend Dr. Alexander with confidence.
Remember Dr. Jamie Alexander and his entire team would love to give your friends, family, and co-workers the wonderful care we give you. Stop by the front desk for our business cards to give to others. Because we make it a practice of asking new patients how they heard about us, we will know to thank you.
And while we’re speaking of our gratitude, we want to thank you for being our patient and also your dental referrals. We truly appreciate that you have put your trust in us to serve you. We are grateful that you have chosen us for your dental care. We look forward to having more patients like you.
