The acceptance of treatment plans is key to any successful dental practice. A provider cannot hope to survive if they are unable to convince their patients to follow the recommended plans that they develop for them. However, getting a patient to follow-through with treatment plans can be delicate. Treatment plans can be expensive, the procedures involved can be painful and scary to many people and dentistry is not always seen as a necessity. Providing your patients with all of the information and details they need to see what their plan involves, will help them to decide what they are willing to proceed with immediately and what treatments will have to wait.
Here are four ways to increase your acceptance rate for treatment plans:
Also, remember that it is important to find out why a patient might reject a treatment plan. If it is due to cost, you can offer them financing options. If they are afraid of pain, you can explain sedation options and pain management techniques. If they just don’t see the importance of the treatment, you can outline the potential long-term impact it would have on their oral health if not addressed now. Oftentimes, being properly informed is all it takes to get them to change their minds and commit to their treatment.
The better informed a person is, the more trust they will have in you and the more likely they are to proceed with any treatment plan proposal.
