More and more dental clinics are recognizing the importance of having different marketing strategies to help reach prospective patients at the right moment.

The patient journey in dental marketing refers to the patient’s path, via touchpoints, to their decision to purchase a service (aka. book an appointment and ultimately accept treatment).

You might be wondering, what are the stages in the patient journey and what are the touchpoints I should be implementing?

In marketing, consumers don’t usually decide to purchase an item immediately after finding out about it for the first time. Usually, it takes numerous encounters (or strategic touchpoints) with the product/service or brand for a person to convert into a customer. The same applies to dental patients!

In this video, I go over the 5 stages of a patient’s journey as well as the various tactics or touchpoints that you could have, and I explain how these stages will help you reach prospective patients.
