What are we doing to ensure that we’re not presenting treatment in a skeptical environment and inadvertently generating negative marketing for ourselves and our businesses?
Research shows that 55% of all communication is in the body language, 38% is in the tone of voice, and 7% is in the actual words spoken — all of which make up the overall impression we give out to our patients.
The way your patients perceive your practice impacts every decision and action they take. This perception has a rippling effect on your confidence, staff, potential customers, and business security.
In today’s episode, I’ll share with you two contrasting personal stories on what enthusing client is and what it’s not. Then, I have some tips that you can train your team on to ensure you’re generating high-trust case acceptance in your practice. I’ll also talk about the importance of picking up non-verbal and social cues to reciprocate appropriate responses.

- “If we don’t do our practice in a trusting environment, it can generate buyer’s remorse and resentment if something goes wrong.”
- “Too often, we hang too much on what our patients are telling us, and sometimes they are not candid.”
- “We have to make sure that we’re picking up on the tone of voice and body language before we’re really satisfied that this person is scheduled for the next phase of treatment.”
- “If we don’t read their body language, we can inadvertently scare and confuse the patient.”
- “The possibility is that we appreciate that body language doesn’t lie.”
- “The goal that we must establish and the intent that we should have is that every patient all day long is seen, heard, and felt like we’ve let them know that they matter to us.”
- “You should look for a long-term relationship because it pays dividends again and again and again.”
- “Your team is your eyes, ears, and spokespeople, so they must be good as you are, if not better.”
