5 Overlooked Dental Practice Growth Strategies You Need To Know In 2023

What is the 'recipe' for dental practice growth?

Evan Lazarus is the CEO and Co-founder of Simple Impact Media, a boutique marketing and consulting firm specializing in local search, web design, digital advertising & practice growth. His diverse background has helped him shape the multi-pronged approach that Simple Impact provides for dental practice owners nationwide.

According to Evan, most dental professionals' practice growth strategies are often ineffective. While marketing efforts can focus on patient acquisition, this approach is not an accurate measurement of practice growth.

Moreover, practice growth and patient acquisition are entirely different things, and this confusion might lead to practice owners thinking their practice is indeed growing while the opposite might be true, thus overlooking genuinely effective practice growth strategies.

To truly gauge practice growth, Evan wants to know not only how many patients a practice receives but also how many patients the practice loses each month. He believes that without understanding the business and measuring the right metrics, you're simply wasting marketing dollars.

As Evan explains:

"Without understanding your business, you can burn your money. You can take a match to it. Because the marketing company isn't going to solve that problem."
