The Patient Source USA Mission

We exist to bring patients to dentists.

That’s it. No extra complications or fancy buzzwords. Patients want to be seen as fast as possible, and dentists want to fill the extra chairs in their offices. When you can match these two needs with each other, everybody wins. And as a team of dental marketing experts with years of experience in our field, there’s no one more qualified to take on this mission than us.

What We Do For Dentists

We have three key ideas that guide everything we do for dentists: Connect With Patients, Grow Your Practice, and Only Pay For What Works. Read all about these goals below, then click here to become a Patient Source USA featured partner.

Connect With Patients

Connect With Patients patient source

More than 80 percent of all patients who visit an emergency dentist begin their search with a phone call. That’s why Patient Source USA operates a helpline that’s open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year – one which receives over 10,000 callers nationwide who are all looking for a local dental practice they can trust.

But connecting with patients is about more than just getting nearby strangers to come into your office. Our helpline is staffed with highly trained referral specialists who will pre-qualify each patient based on their insurance, income, and required service. Once we’re sure that a patient is a great fit for your practice, we use real-time calendar availability to book appointments in one of your daily available time slots.

From here we can either transfer the live call directly to your receptionist during office hours, or send an instant text/E-mail notification to let you know when your new appointment is booked.

Grow Your Practice

When you become a featured partner of Patient Source USA, we’ll generate a minimum of 10 more patients for your practice each month, with an average revenue of $1000+ per patient. We do this by creating Internet listings for your business, featuring you in a profile on our high-profile website, and making sure you’re a high-ranking result on Google for your area. Check our credentials below – our expert marketing team knows what we’re doing and can provide real results.

Only Pay For What Works

Only Pay For What Works patient sourceWe know we can help you find more paying customers – but there’s no need to take our word for it. Remember our mission: we exist to bring patients to dentists, not to charge you for every scheduled appointment. You only pay a one-time fixed fee after the patient shows up and becomes a new patient at your practice.

That means you can start your trial of Patient Source USA today – and if we don’t generate results, you won’t pay a thing. But have your checkbook ready, because in 10 years, that hasn’t happened once.

Our Dental Marketing Team

Our core team is a group of experts in dental marketing and sales with years of experience in their respective fields. This is expertise you can trust to get serious results.

Luis is a content writer with nearly twice as much experience in the same fields and a special knack for writing copy that pops off the page.

Together, these two form our digital marketing team. They’ll write your bio and your business listings and make sure it’s getting to as many people as possible, all while bringing to bear a specific knowledge of the unique problems faced by the modern dentist.

Marisol Ramos – Graphic Designer

If a picture is worth a thousand words, does that mean we should be paying Marisol a thousand times as much as Isaac and Luis? We’ll leave the philosophy to the professionals, but in the meantime we’re just thankful that Marisol is creating great work every single day as she uses her 10 years of design expertise to create gorgeous page designs for us and our featured partners.
