Coronavirus – the view from Spain (part five)

Tony Gedge give us his latest update from Spain on how the coronavirus is impacting him and dental practices around the world.

Spain is currently on lockdown, with people consequently only allowed out to go shopping or go to work.

Tony has therefore taken the time to update Dentistry.co.uk on the current position from Spain and give his thoughts on how dental practices should deal with the coronavirus.

Staying engaged

We need to be giving our dental patients and our dental teams clear and direct communication during this time.

This is an ideal opportunity to start building relationships with patients, prospects and local communities. Tony suggests creating a weekly club and hosting a webinar to do this

  • Discuss facial aesthetics and how to stay forever young
  • Talk about how dental implants can potentially increase confidence
  • Ask your hygienist to host a toothbrushing club for children
  • Get a clinician to talk about how to straighten teeth.

Also send your patients an email to promote your weekly club.

When you do next open, you’ll have patients ready to go, with prospects in your local community.
