In parts 1 and 2 of our Dentacoin series, we have already shown how dentists can earn additional money by consciously screening patients and how the Dentacoin apps can help to retain patients over the long term.
However, two important questions remain unanswered:
- Why should dentists use Dentacoin apps and currency in their practice?
- What experiences have German dentists and patients already had with Dentacoin?
Since we do not like DENTALHELDEN unanswered questions, we went in search of answers and found interesting conversation partners:
– Jeremias Grenzebach, co-founder and core developer of the Dentacoin Foundation; – Marius Herfurth, owner of a dental practice with its own laboratory in Neuenburg-Zetel; and – Dessislava Dimova, head of SWISS Dentaprime, a state-of-the-art dental tourism clinic in Bulgaria, which mainly treats German patients.
First stop: Dentacoin Foundation
Jeremiah, you’re Dentacoin’s co-founder. Can you explain to us what Dentacoin can do for dentists?
By using Dentacoin tools, dental practices can achieve higher patient participation, satisfaction and retention. For example, there is a case study from one of our first London partners. We achieve this through the verified and comprehensive patient feedback on Dentacoin Trusted Reviews and the current market data published weekly on DentaVox. This enables dentists to keep abreast of patients’ wishes and needs at all times and improve their services accordingly.
Jeremias Grenzebach, Dentacoin co-founder during his lecture at the International Dental Show 2019 in Cologne
Through various ways of rewarding patients (such as participating in DentaVox surveys, improving oral hygiene through the Dentacare App, and providing trusted ratings) and using these rewards as a means of payment (such as for dental treatment, purchasing gift cards, and exchanging them for other crypto/traditional currencies), dentists engage their patients in a whole new and modern way.
Patients see that their opinions and sustainable oral care are important and are more likely to commit to the Dentacoin partner dentist for longer. Best of all, the dentists as dentists pay nothing for this program. We even offer them an onboarding bonus and a free marketing campaign if they choose to accept DCN payments.
Dentacoin Assurance – our blockchain-based dental insurance, is the cherry on the cherry on top as it entitles patients to lifelong prevention and in turn enables dentists to earn a regular income and increase patient loyalty. These stable, mutually beneficial relationships of trust are in turn a good basis for patients to recommend us – an essential success factor for any dental practice!
Second stop: Your dentist Neuenburg-Zetel
Marius, you yourself are the owner of a dental practice with a laboratory that is proud to be the first Dentacoin partner dental practice in Germany (Neuenburg-Zetel). What are your experiences with Dentacoin and what do you think about the blockchain technology behind it?
I am a passionate supporter of digital dentistry and quickly recognized Dentacoin’s key role in it. A quick look at my social profiles on Instagram and Facebook is enough to prove it.
Today, a number of revolutionary technologies are ready to change the world, but none has the same potential as the blockchain. This technology enables Dentacoin to build a network of dentists using the software tools it has developed to help both us and our patients improve oral health worldwide.
This is possible, for example, with the DentaVox tool, which offers patients the opportunity to earn Dentacoin (DCN) free of charge for participating in various surveys. Patients can use the earned DCN to pay for their dental treatment. At the same time, clinics and private physicians can spend DCN, for example, on equipment and materials. Dentists are motivated to ensure long-term dental success for each patient. They are rewarded with small monthly contributions from Dentacoin-Tokens (DCN).
“Dentacoin’s primary goal is to make dentistry more affordable for the patient while promoting a more active patient participation in dental health.”
Dr. Marius Herfurth, your dentist at Neuenburg-Zetel
Third stop: SWISS Dentaprime Dental Clinic
Ms Dimova, SWISS Dentaprime was the very first Dentacoin partner worldwide. As far as we know, you mainly treat German patients aged 50 and over. What experience have your patients had with crypto rewards so far?
The rewards in Dentacoin that our patients are offered, for example, as an incentive for video references after a successfully completed dental treatment, seem to be very attractive to them. Regardless of their age. SWISS Dentaprime already had this positive experience shortly after the introduction of the digital currency.
We integrated Dentacoin (DCN) into our internal feedback and reward system in 2017. Since then, patients have been very enthusiastic about this new opportunity. No voucher, no customer card and no discount in euros – nothing can surpass the joyful feeling of getting Dentacoin tokens. Dentacoin feels like magic money to our patients. This creates a special bond between our clinic and the patients – all those involved work together to improve dental services.
Sounds good, doesn’t it? We wanted to know more about it and didn’t miss the opportunity to hear the voice of the patients on site. What have SWISS Dentaprime patients told us about their experiences with Dentacoin, you can see and hear below:
