While other sites have broad reach, they don’t target a niche market, let alone one that is in desperate need of dental treatment. Dentists that join My College Dentist® are being marketed directly towards college students. The college age population of 20+ million students is severely underserved. By providing dental deals that can be used more than once, you will be more likely to build a loyal relationship with your new found student patients, rather than constantly booking bargain hunters that hop around from one deal to the next. For more reasons why dentists should be using MCD, click below!
Absolutely. We provide the fields for information that we feel are the most vital for prospective patients, but we allow you to control the information and photos you provide in order to make it more personable.
No! We give you free range on the discounts you wish to provide, whether that is 1% off or 99% off. You know your practice and how it runs, which is why we don’t step in and tell you how to price your procedures. We do advise, however, that you understand the demographic being targeted and provide dental deals accordingly for the best results.
Yes you can, but please be aware that you MUST properly record the discounted price that was charged when it comes to filing the insurance claim. If you do not enter in the discounted rate, you can be charged with filing a fraudulent claim at the discretion of your insurance contracts. My College Dentist® is not liable for any issues with insurance claims that stem from providing discounts. If you have any additional questions or you are unsure of if what you are doing is legal, contact your attorney OR the insurance company you are working with to ensure compliance.
Absolutely NOT. We believe that is truly what sets us apart from other discount sites. We are trying to help dental practices fill out their schedules and expand their businesses. We want to incentivize the entire process on both ends, not just on the consumer’s end of the deal. Every appointment you book through My College Dentist® is your own profit and your opportunity to establish a relationship with your new patient.
Rather than charge a percentage of each sale or appointment, we charge an affordable monthly membership fee in order to market your practice effectively to local college students and keep your dental practice profile listed on our website for local students to easily find. Membership fees also help ensure to keep the website operating at optimal speed and security. However, all dentists receive their first month of usage for FREE with NO CONTRACTS!
Of course! We want to make it as easy and convenient as possible to get students into the dental chair. We realized that a lot of students go away for college, meaning they go back home for holidays and summer break. Your hometown might not have a college nearby and we don’t want that to stop students from getting a great deal on dental care. We want to incentivize dental care in order to get more students interested in maintaining good oral health! Our mission is to partner with as many dentists as possible in big cities and small towns across America. We believe that convenience and affordability should be available to all, even if you aren’t from a major metropolitan area!
As of right now, no. We are working on a way to incorporate online booking as we speak. But for now, we think it is easiest for all if we simply provide the platform to connect local students with your practice and provide your contact information. Until we have it down perfectly, we’d prefer to not make your office learn a new system or mess up your scheduling protocol. We do suggest that students have the option to e-mail your practice if they prefer to not call, though it is not required. Remember, this is the first tech-savvy generation and it will only become more advanced in terms of what technology is being used for as time goes on.
NEVER! We do not believe in locking you into something that may not work for you. User satisfaction is of the utmost importance to us and if MCD isn’t working for you, we don’t want you feeling stuck (however, we’d love feedback to improve the experience!) All of our membership options are on a month-to-month basis, allowing you to easily cancel whenever. We also make the cancellation process simple and online--No phone calls involved. We hate when you have to call a customer service line to cancel services and they continue to try to sell you on things. While we’d hate to see you go, we understand that My College Dentist® might not be for everyone and you need to do what’s best for your business.
If you can’t find your answer above, please feel free to contact us here and we’ll be happy to assist you!
