Things to Do Before Relocating Your Dental Practice

CityBefore you relocate your dental practice, there are many things you need to do. You’ll find that geographic, demographic, operational, and administrative considerations will play a very important role in the set-up of a new location. Choosing to relocate your dental practice can be a very stressful and emotional decision and it’s vital to do plenty of research before making this decision. It’s especially important to take into account the importance of the physical location of your practice.

Dental Relocation To-Do List

Once you’ve chosen a location and made the necessary decision, you can help to make the relocation easier by creating a to-do list. Below are a few things you may want to consider before making your move:

  • Put together a moving plan – Your moving plan should include a few things. Such as a diagram of the new office showing where all the equipment and furniture should be placed. Additionally, make sure you have a set date for the move and allow yourself enough time to pack and prepare before the movers arrive. Take this opportunity to take an inventory of your office and get rid of unneeded items.
  • Delegate responsibilities – Don’t think that you’ll be able to take care of the relocation all on your own! It’s important to delegate certain responsibilities to staff members that you trust. Make sure to have a checks and balances policy in place to keep everyone accountable.
  • Hire a moving company – When hiring a moving company, make sure the company is able to move and relocate large and fragile objects such as X-Ray machines. It’s great if the company already has experience in relocating dental offices. Get a price estimate from several companies and pick a moving date.
  • Notify your patients – Patient should be contacted around 2-3 months before the move. Make sure they’re contacted by mail, phone, and email. You may also want to consider putting a reminder in your waiting room or somewhere else in the office. Lastly, make sure each notification includes the new location and phone number of your dental practice.
  • Oversee the entire move – Lastly, it’s a good idea to arrive at your new practice locations before the movers and oversee the entire moving process. This will allow you to make sure items are handled properly and placed in the correct locations.

When setting up your new dental practice, you may also want to hire professionals to help make sure your practice is successful.
