Seeing dentist more important than getting a haircut, survey respondents say

WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J., USA: Lanmark360, a full-service healthcare agency with deep experience in the dental space, has announced the immediate availability of key consumer insights regarding their desire to see their dentists for a checkup as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted in their state or local municipality.

As indicated by the survey results, Lanmark360 reports, consumer sentiment, perceptions and attitudes are quite positive with respect to their willingness to rapidly return to dental practices. When asked, “Is being able to return to the dentist more or less important than other things?” respondents ranked seeing their dentist as more important than getting their hair cut, pet grooming and going to restaurants.

“We found that over half of the respondents fell behind on their dental care due to canceled appointments during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Howard Klein, Lanmark360 president. “However, 10 percent intend to see their dentists immediately once their dentist’s office has reopened, and a full 50 percent intend to return to their dentist for a routine cleaning within three months.”

The majority of respondents surveyed also indicate a preference for single-visit dentistry, and more than 50 percent believe practice safety protocols are extremely important.

Many other important insights are highlighted in the full survey results report, including crucial information that dentists can leverage to help ensure patients feel safe upon their return to the dental office, as well as how patients prefer to be contacted by their dentist’s office once they reopen and what information they expect to receive.
