Refurbishing your dental clinic provides you with more than a fresh new space. Updating your practice environment can help to deliver an immediate return on investment.
We take a look at three key benefits you can expect from refurbishing your dental clinic.
Designing your waiting room to meet your patients’ needs will have a huge impact on their experience. Being the first space your patients enter when visiting your practice, your waiting area needs to exude a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere.
If you’re a family dentist, incorporating a play area for children is a great idea. If you’re based in the city or take care of primarily professional patients, free Wi-Fi or a refreshment station may be more appropriate.
Whoever your patients may be, your goal should be to promote their comfort and improve their waiting room experience. Improved satisfaction will see your patients return, delivering a return on your refurbishment investment.
The more easily you and your patients can move from space to space through your practice, the more streamlined their experience will be. With enhanced efficiency comes the opportunity to take care of more patients – an obvious benefit for your bottom line.
To improve your patients’ movement through your practice, consider the logical path they will typically take. Are there any bottlenecks or awkward transitions? Eliminating these problem points and improving your patients’ journey through your practice will have an immediate effect on your practice’s efficiency.
Many people underestimate the value of improving workflows. However, many studies have suggested that doing so can immediately boost your dental practice’s productivity.
Refurbishing your dental clinic is a great opportunity to address any workflow issues that you may be experiencing in your current practice. A good place to start is to speak with your staff about what they feel could be improved, and how they would address these problems.
If the workflow is effortless, staff efficiency and streamlined work processes will follow.
