Not Your Average Dental Clinic

We wanted to learn more about this two-time award winner and how they managed to build such an impressive online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with Stephanie Michaud, Practice Administrator at Evergreen Dental Associates.

The first thing we wanted to know was what makes Evergreen Dental Associates a one-of-a-kind dental clinic in Maine. Here’s what Stephanie had to say:

“We are very patient-based. We look at ourselves as the patient in the chair and how we would want to be treated. We have patients that have been here a long time, so they are more like family members.”

We also asked Stephanie what their mission is at Evergreen Dental Associates and how they work to make the world a better place. Stephanie told us that their mission statement is, “Let your smile shine,” and that they give back to their community in many different ways:

“We do quite a few donations to charities throughout the year. We are a ‘Toys for Tots’ drop off location; we do our local food bank at Thanksgiving, and we do a number of private charities as well.”

Building Success by Following Up and Asking for Feedback

Stephanie attributes Evergreen Dental Associates’ strong online reputation to their commitment to sending follow-up emails, which include a survey where people can leave them feedback.

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Evergreen Dental Associates has gotten their name out there through word of mouth and their referrals program, where their patients get a gift card when they refer someone to their practice.

Every business owner wants to build the kind of online reputation Evergreen Dental Associates has. When we asked Stephanie what advice she has for those business owners, she said:

“The biggest thing is to be upfront and honest. If you put something out there, make sure you live up to it.”

Not many offices have that. It allows us to place dental implants right here in our office. We have a Trios Optical Scanner, which allows us to take digital impressions, and every treatment room is computerized for digital x-rays and electronic record keeping. We do a lot of restorative and high-end cosmetic reconstructive dentistry. We also work with highly skilled laboratory technicians and use only the best materials. Because we are able to do a lot of dental work in-house, we do not have to refer people to other offices, which is very convenient and is appreciated by our patients.”

Dr. Light told us that their success is all thanks to word of mouth and referrals. They have also gained recognition for the many charitable efforts they are involved in. Their office sponsors a bicycle team that raises money for M.S., Dr. Conforti volunteers for the Rhode Island Free Clinic, which just recently started offering dental services, and both Dr. Light and Dr. Conforti participate in the DDS (donated dental services) program, which treats several patients a year at no charge.
