Case Study: The Cosmetic Dentists of Austin

Making patients smile with expert care, a great experience and affordability.

As their name suggests, The Cosmetic Dentists of Austin are committed to giving every patient a beautiful, healthy smile. They also deliver a pleasant, professional and hassle-free experience. They are aware, however, that affordability is a vital component of their continued success. Their services include complete smile makeovers, porcelain veneers, implants, crowns and bridges as well as full mouth reconstruction. The practice also offers sedation dentistry for anxious patients.

“Patients come to us because they’re tired of not smiling or covering their mouth due to missing, chipped, discolored or crooked teeth,” said Kevin Murray, Director of Marketing and Finance. “Dr. John Christian Schiro and Dr. John Hay combine various services and techniques to create a customized treatment plan for every patient. The next step is to make the patient’s new smile affordable.  That part has historically often been a bit difficult as getting patients approved and fully funded for large cases has been a challenge.  That’s where GreenSky comes in,” Mr. Murray concluded.

Meeting unique needs

The Cosmetic Dentists of Austin know that every patient’s oral health situation is unique and the same goes for their financial situation. “As healthcare professionals, it is incumbent upon us to be mindful of both,” said Mr. Murray. “We’re dedicated to making the entire process as easy and seamless as possible. The patient must be comfortable with the procedures, the staff and the effect on their finances.”

About GreenSky

“We’ve reviewed several financing providers and GreenSky Patient Solutions® has the simplest application and approval process we’ve come across,” continued Mr. Murray. “There’s minimal paperwork, solid approval rates and especially considering the large case fees we often submit for (with us only doing complete smile makeovers and full mouth reconstruction) and a variety of terms. We’re also extremely happy with GreenSky’s payment processing and the speed with which we receive funds. We’ve had EXCEPTIONAL customer service from Catlin and Mary,” Mr. Murray said. They are both incredibly responsive and accessible. True all-stars!”

In the final analysis…

Sometimes the bottom line is truly the bottom line. Financing allows more patients to accept the optimal treatment plan, which leads to better results, happier patients and an improved bottom line. The Cosmetic Dentists of Austin are pleased to report revenue growth of 10% to 20% from offering financing with GreenSky Patient Solutions®.

The moral of the story?

Make affordability a vital part of your continuum of care. Because optimal treatment plan acceptance is the key to healthier, happier patients and a more successful practice.
