In the UK, £7.1bn a year is spent on dentistry (around £3.6bn privately and £3.5bn by the NHS). The British Dental Survey 2017 found that three quarters of dentists in England are operating as mixed practices offering both NHS and private dental work.

A survey from FMC found that 58% of dentists expect to do more private treatment in the next year, whilst 51% plan to invest in high-technology equipment and software to make the quality of their treatments better.

This move to grow private dentistry is partly to do with increasing NHS targets for dental practices, combined with the chronic underfunding reported by dentists offering NHS treatments since 2010.

Because of this pressure on costs, more and more dental practices are having to close their doors to the public forever. The number of practices expecting to close as a result of COVID-19 before 2025 is expected to be significant – in some small towns, the last dental practice has permanently ended its service to the public meaning that patients now have to travel many miles for treatment.

Competition for patient registration is increasing and patients are rating the quality of care they receive from their dentists online. Dental practices have to provide make more information available online to persuade patients to register with them for both general practice and for non-surgical cosmetic treatments.

The best way to find a dentist to buy your product or service it to send them information on what you sell and how you can help them improve the care and level of service they offer patients at a higher profit margin.

Do you offer an outsourced marketing service to your clients?

Direct marketing to dentists’ inboxes by email or having a conversation over the phone is much more likely to get your message across now than investing in web-based and social media marketing.

If you lack the infrastructure or staff to carry out campaigns, please ask us about our dentist-focused managed email marketing campaigns to the public sector and our outsourced telemarketing campaigns to the public sector.

What do your clients sell to dental practices?

More Than Words’ list of dentists is suitable for any business supplying products or services to dental surgeries including:

  • laboratory services,
  • software suppliers,
  • medical equipment manufacturers, and
  • distributors of medical supplies

Dental surgeries are businesses, requiring a steady income and regular clients to keep their business stable.

After a tough few years, dentists now regularly search for and find ways to make their businesses more profitable and stable and who are to offer a wider general menu of services to their patients.

A survey from FMC found that 58% of dentists expect to do more private treatment in the next year, whilst 51% plan to invest in high-technology equipment and software to improve the quality of their treatments.

This move to grow private dentistry is partly to do with increasing NHS targets for dental practices, combined with the chronic underfunding reported by dentists offering NHS treatments since 2010.

Dentists spend thousands of pounds each year on supplies for their offices including anaesthetics, syringes, dental drills and x-ray machines.

They also search for and find suppliers who can improve their website content and usability as more and more patients are going online to search for details of standard dental treatments and for details of more expensive cosmetic treatments.
