E63: Tips on Going Above & Beyond for Your Patients

In the world of dentistry, going above and beyond for patients is not just a nice gesture—it's a calling. As a dentist who truly cares about the well-being of your patients, you already strive to provide them with the best possible care. But have you ever considered what it means to go above and beyond as a house-call dentist? This week I want to explore some unique opportunities and recommendations to elevate your patient's or future patient's experience.

Punctuality may seem like a basic expectation, but it can truly make a difference. Patients who are unable to leave their homes appreciate when you respect their time by arriving promptly for appointments. While unforeseen circumstances may arise, a simple courtesy call can go a long way in showing that you value their time and schedule. As a house-call dentist, you also have the opportunity to assist patients with more than just dental care. Whether it's picking up medication from the pharmacy or sending letters through the mail, these small acts of kindness can have a significant impact on patients who may have limited mobility or resources. 

In the realm of house-call dentistry, building relationships with patients goes beyond the dental chair. By engaging in meaningful correspondence such as sending personalized notes, reaching out during difficult times, or taking the time to listen to patients' life experiences, you solidify your connection with them. These gestures of compassion and empathy demonstrate that you truly care about them as individuals, not just as patients. 

Being a house-call dentist is a privilege that comes with unique opportunities to make a difference in the lives of your patients. By going above and beyond in your care, you not only enhance the patient experience but also create lasting relationships built on trust, respect, and compassion. The honor of being trusted to provide dental care in the intimate setting of a patient's home is one that should inspire you to give your best every single time.
