If so, these are effective channels to promote your latest services and products, like teeth whitening.
Include a brief mention of your new whitening products and promotions with all appointment reminders.

2. Incentivise Your Staff

When selling whitening, it’s important that your staff are comfortable with explaining your various treatments. Set aside some time to train your colleagues on the products your practice carries, including the benefits of each, what types of patients they are best suited for, results expectations, and at-home instructions.
You can even practice role playing by acting out various situations you may face with patients. Additionally, consider starting a friendly competition! Keep track of how many whitening products are sold by each staff member in a month – the winner can be rewarded with a gift card or day off.

Also consider discounts around the holidays or back-to-school time, and promote these specials in your waiting room, website, and social media.   

4. Conversation Starters

Did your patient mention an upcoming wedding? Ask if your patient and their partner are interested in whitening their teeth before the big day.

Is your patient in need of restorative work soon? Remind them that restorations cannot be made lighter so if they have been considering whitening, it’s best to do so before their dental work. 

Is your patient almost finished with their clear aligner treatment? Suggest whitening for that extra bright smile!

There are many ways to effortlessly bring up whitening with your patients. Listen for the opportunities!

5. Waiting Room Questionnaires 

Have patients complete a brief questionnaire while they are waiting for their appointments. Include questions such as: what is the reason for today’s visit? Do you have any concerns you’d like to speak to your dentist about?  Are there any treatments you’d like more information on?

If patients express interest in whitening, you can present your practice’s options during their hygiene appointments.
