Referral products enable you to generate leads for new patients or, better yet, increase patient calls. You can choose from various products to help in this regard. Three of the most popular choices include referral cards, Spreading Smiles referral postcards, and referral notepads, each which you can use to your full benefit
Orthodontic Referral Cards
It is always nice to receive referrals from your patients and you can realize this benefit when you use orthodontic referral cards. You need to use this marketing tool if you want to see your practice grow. Most orthodontists never think to ask their patients for a referral. Therefore, referral cards are an excellent way to motivate patients to give your name as a reference.
By the use of referral cards, you can generate business affordably and more easily. Train your employees to hand out referral cards in patient takeaway bags or you may also consider leaving the cards in strategic spots in local dental offices.
How the Cards Are Printed
Orthodontic referral cards are printed using our cutting-edge four-color process. We combine cyan, magenta, yellow, and black to give patients the best looking referral cards possible. By taking this approach, we can guarantee that your lead generation will increase.
You can choose from the following color terms when processing your order:
