Dentist Practice Support
Central to the Patient Advocacy Model is the doctor/patient relationship. This is why Smile Brands makes investments in facilities, equipment, marketing and makes continuing education available to affiliated doctors. Providing these tools and support allows for both personal and professional support.
Leave Everything to Us
Affiliated dental offices are strategically located in retail areas with great visibility, prominent signage, easy accessibility, and strong patient flow. Many offices feature up to 12 operatories outfitted with the latest equipment—all with no loans to repay and no cost to you. To streamline operations and increase efficiency, we’ve created a central business office team dedicated to the complex administration of doctor contracts, collections, insurance verification, and preauthorizations. Plus, we take care of scheduling, billing, accounting, marketing, human resources, information technology, and equipment procurement and maintenance in our Business Support office, so you and your staff can focus on caring for patients.
Our Innovative Marketing Practices
As an affiliated dentist, you’ll benefit from thoughtfully presented and finely targeted consumer messaging. Affiliated dentists handle about 2.5 million patient visits every year. To fully understand your patients’ needs, we conduct ongoing national and local marketing research. Then we use this knowledge to target and measure our marketing programs, enabling consistent and sizeable new patient flow. We also invest in patient retention to ensure that new patients become loyal lifetime customers. Our goal is to build strong brands in the communities we serve, so that patients know about and trust the quality services affiliated dentists deliver.
Comprehensive Patient Financing
Because we know that many patients put off or avoid altogether having costly dental work performed, we offer a wide variety of patient financing options. We make these programs easy to apply for, and we take care of all the administrative details. We make it simple for patients to say “yes” to the treatment you recommend.
