Introducing a New Dentist to The Practice

This Office Manager resource provides handy worksheet to help your new introduce your new dentist to the practice.

Introducing a New Dentist to The Practice

When writing a letter to introduce a new dentist to the practice, whether it’s due to retirement, a new associate or a practice buyout, it should always reflect the personality of the practice. Some letters are formal, almost like a legal notice and others can be informal. Ideally, you should try to make your letter friendly but professional. The letter can be written from the prior owner/dentist (“I am happy to introduce Dr. …”), or it come from the entire practice (“We are happy to introduce…”) and depending on the situation it can also come from the new dentist/owner (“I am happy to be joining…”). Most software programs can provide letter merge options and will help make the job easier.

General guidelines/suggestions

  • Limit the letter to one page – Most won’t take the time to read more
  • Be clear and concise with your wording
  • Keep sentences and paragraphs straightforward and uncomplicated
  • Always check for proper spelling, grammar, punctuation, etc.
  • A nice touch would be to add a professional photo of the new dentist. This will create familiarity for the patients.
  • The letter should be printed on office letterhead and should include doctor/office name, address, phone number and other contact information.
  • Be sure to proofread the letter before sending
