"We were hoping for maybe a 5 to 10% increase..."

When we started working with Wentz Orthodontics, they were a thriving 9-office practice looking for moderate growth. After all, an 8-figure business can only scale so quickly, right?

Before they knew what hit them, Wentz was booking 61% more new patient exams than the previous year and dominating both paid and organic results through the Lubbock, Texas area.

Let’s take a look at what happened and how Wentz Orthodontics has added as much as $4.5M in gross production in a single year working with HIP.

HIP Helped Wentz
Orthodontics Achieve:

+4,101% Return on Investment

+$4.5M Revenue Growth In 1 Year

+500,000 Business Views On Google Maps

“We had a pretty established practice with nine locations. So we were hoping for maybe a 5% to 10% increase in new patients. But I looked last week, and we’re up to 61%, which I’ve never had before.”

-Dr. Ed Wentz

Optimizing Digital Strategy Sparked New Patient Growth

Wentz Orthodontics already had the strong branding you’d expect of a 9-location business. But they were still letting too much business slip through the cracks.

We helped to optimize their online presence by updating their website and adding professional video clips to their marketing toolkit.

In the process, we optimized their website for SEO to drive more traffic. And added online appointment scheduling too, which was a major factor in driving the 61% increase in new patient exams.

“I really feel that we’ve got a true partner. Somebody that we can work with that cares about our practice just as much as we do. I’m very thankful to be able to work with HIP.”

-Dr. Ed Wentz

Updated Google Business Profiles Reached 500 Million People

One of the biggest things Wentz had overlooked during their growth was the importance of Google Business Profiles.

While they had 9 locations, only 3 of those had active GBP profiles. Adding detailed profiles for the additional locations made it much easier for potential patients to find and contact them.

To date, their Google Business pages have generated 37,669 phone calls, sent 9,359 visitors to their website, and been viewed over 500,000 times on Google Maps!

Your Big Practice Needs Big Ideas If You Want To Grow!

It is easy to settle for what you already know, when you are running multiple practices. But Dr. Wentz knew settling meant their multi-location operation plateauing growth.

Instead Dr. Wentz opted for HIP to be in their corner. Not only did Wentz Orthodontics see immediate growth, they saw record breaking numbers across all nine of their offices. Leading to $4.5 million in revenue growth in just one year.

But you don’t have to wait for any magical number of locations before teaming up with HIP. We can help you reach the goals you have in mind today.

From extending your outreach to driving record breaking growth for your office, our Patient Acquisition and Retention Framework (PARF™) will transform how your practice does business.

Leland Orthodontics

Dr. Andrew Leland sought out HIP because he finally realized his “homemade” processes hit a plateau when it came to growth for his practice. After reading Luke Infinger’s Practice Growth series of books, he declared to his team, “we’re transitioning from a small orthodontic practice into an orthodontic business!”

How Does it Work?

The Patient Acquisition and Retention Framework™ maximizes your ability to use patient data to connect with new patients, retain existing patients, and grow your practice.
