7 Reasons Your Practice Needs a Mobile App

We get it: mobile apps still seem novel, and perhaps even a luxury. The fact of the matter is,  however, they becoming increasingly standard for reputable businesses. Although there are countless benefits to developing a mobile app for your practice, here are 7 key points to keep in mind.

1. The future is mobile. 60% of US consumers own a smartphone, and 80% of time spent on smartphones is dedicated to app use. These statistics are growing year after year, and if you’re not on the mobile train, you’ll be left in the dust.

2. According to a US/UK Latitude survey, 61% of people hold a better opinion of businesses when they offer a great mobile experience. If you are more mobile-friendly than the next practice, your practice will be the better option.

3. When a phone call is the only way a patient can get help, it can cause the office to get backed up and patients turn impatient! With your app, patients will have immediate access to advice they would have otherwise had to call to obtain, or even shoot you an email regarding a dental concern- including pictures. Your office will be able to easily handle a much more organized incoming flow of messages.

4. Look top-of-the-line. It doesn’t take a lot to get an exceptional mobile experience with Dental Anywhere. However, offering a mobile app to your patients will convey that you spare no expense to offer great patient care.

5. Your app is “open” 24/7. Dental emergencies can happen at any time, and patients can use the app at any time to receive immediate care. Offering this kind of attention will make patients feel like your round-the-clock priority.

6. Easiest. Marketing. EVER. Once your patient downloads the app, they can easily review your practice on a multitude of social networking websites, as well as share your information with their own phone contacts. With patients endorsing you to their friends, you will be exposed to a whole network of potential patients.

7. People trust businesses who take the time to “keep up with the times”. Your mobile app will show that you are technologically savvy, and will suggest that you also stay up to date in the world of dentistry.
