The "Try Before Your Buy" Mindset With Dr. Marilyn Sandor

There are a number of reasons why prospective patients would want to have a preliminary consultation before they fully commit to a dental clinic.

Some people can have special needs, some patients have anxiety, others might be parents looking for a new dentist for their child, and some could be speciality care seekers with very specific needs.

All to say, not all patients will walk through your door if they haven’t met you yet. Some will want to learn more about you before committing.

This is especially true after the pandemic, which showed us that virtual care was not only possible, but also a great option for patients and doctors alike.

This is why telehealth and virtual care are services that you need to add to your dental practice.

Virtual care is a great way to build a good relationship with potential patients before they even walk into your clinic.

This is exactly what I discuss with today’s guest, Dr. Marilyn Sandor.

Marilyn is a highly respected pediatric dentist based in Southwest Florida and the founder and CEO of GoodCheckup, a revolutionary teledentistry solution. 

With over two decades of experience in her field, she established Naples Pediatric Dentistry, a thriving private practice located in the picturesque community of Naples, Florida. Marilyn is not only a skilled clinician, but also a successful business owner, author, and an active participant in her community.

Today, Marilyn is here to talk to us about GoodCheckup, why teledentistry is the future, how to break free from the traditional dental care model, and more.
