Authors

[ PREFACE ]

By Mark LeBlanc, CSP

No matter what age you are, these words get our attention and captivate our imagination. A story well told is a story that often results in a prospect being sold. While you may shudder to think of yourself as a salesperson, the good news is selling is simply a communication process that can be learned and mastered.

If you are like most dentists, you prefer to be in a treatment room behind the chair and working with patients. You went to school for many years and paid the price for your expertise. Downtime is frowned upon: if you are not producing, revenues can slip and at times decrease dramatically.

Seldom do dental professionals study the art and science of business development. Seasoned and successful professionals from all walks of life have discovered that true, practiced growth is dependent on a person’s ability to present, persuade, and communicate effectively. In fact, a dentist must understand the sales process and how it will impact the success of a practice.

In your hands you hold the definitive guide to learning why and how storytelling can be your competitive advantage in the marketplace or neighborhood. It can turn a dejected prospect into an enthusiastic patient. When a patient is enthusiastic, he or she can be the best word-of-mouth referral source. Your online reviews will be more positive, and your rate of referrals will go up.

You will discover the different types of stories that matter in your practice, along with a blueprint for developing short stories that can have an immediate impact in your case acceptance statistics. In fact, with a little work and practice, you will have a select group of stories to choose from that can be shared in your office and in your marketing efforts online.

At first glance it may seem daunting. With anything worthwhile, once you get past a little resistance, and you try and tinker with your stories, you will see how easy it can be. Have fun with it, master the art of persuading with a story, and soon you will be storytelling your way to success.

[ CHAPTER 1 ]

WHY PERSUADE WITH A CASE ACCEPTANCE STORY

Shocking statistic: Dentists are only persuading patients to move forward with treatment 61 percent of the time.

What’s so disturbing about this number is that it includes cavities, a treatment that is accepted at least 95 percent of the time (2016 Dental Economics/Levin Group Practice Survey).

Here is the hard news. Many dentists might conclude the roadblock is money. Multiple surveys show the cost of treatment plays a role in less than 50 percent of cases when a patient doesn’t accept treatment [Mitch Ellingson, Improving Case Acceptance—How to Get More Revenue (and Joy) From Your Practice, July 22, 2018, www.speareducation.com].

Here is the good news: Humans are hardwired for stories. Storytelling can persuade patients to accept treatment. That means healthier patients and wealthier dentists.

Nothing is as persuasive as storytelling with a purpose. In this little book are the keys to proven techniques for telling a great case acceptance story—techniques employed by Hollywood, Madison Avenue, and Wall Street.

In addition to humorous ways to remember the eight great metastories, this book reveals how to include must-have characters into each case acceptance story, including the hero, nemesis, and mentor (spoiler: smart dentists should not make the dumb mistake of making themselves the heroes of their own case acceptance stories).

THE SCIENCE AND ART OF STORYTELLING

In August 2008, Scientific American Mind published an article by Jeremy Hsu titled, The Secrets of Storytelling: Why We Love a Good Yarn. You should read the entire article, but here is a summary.

According to Hsu, storytelling, or narrative, is a human universal, and common themes appear in tales throughout history and all over the world. The greatest stories—those retold through generations and translated into other languages—do more than simply present a believable picture. These tales captivate their audiences, whose emotions can be inextricably tied to those of the characters in the stories.

By studying narrative’s power to influence beliefs, researchers are discovering how we analyze information and accept new ideas. A 2007 study by marketing researcher Jennifer Edson Escalas of Vanderbilt University found that a test audience responded more positively to advertisements in narrative form, as compared with straightforward ads that encouraged viewers to think logically about arguments for a product.¹ Similarly, Melanie Green of the University of North Carolina coauthored a 2006 study showing that labeling information as fact increased critical analysis, whereas labeling information as fiction had the opposite effect.

People accept ideas more readily when their minds are in story mode as opposed to when they are in an analytical mindset. Telling the right stories, in the right way, can dramatically increase a dentist’s case acceptance rates.

PLEASE CELEBRATE ME HOME

If we want to create more engagement with patients regarding their current condition, they must be involved in the picture and the story of what is currently happening in their mouths.

Those were the words that helped Dr. Please (true story, but name changed) escape a downward spiral that could have doomed her practice.

This is the mess-to-success story of Dr. Please, who had a moderately successful practice in her mid-sized town in Texas. Several years earlier, Dr. Please had moved her home from that suburban town to a major metropolis about an hour away. Due to the commute time and missing the opportunity to take her young girls to and from
