Checklist for Relocating Your Dental Practice

Dental buildingWhen you’re setting up your dental practice, you’ll begin to understand the importance of demographic, geographic, operational, and administrative considerations. The decision to relocate your dental practice is a big one, and you should make sure you’ve done your due diligence before making a final decision.

Relocation Checklist for Your Dental Practice

Once you have decided on a location and done your homework, you can make the relocation easier by creating a checklist. Below are a few things to consider when putting your checklist together:

  • Moving Plan – Your moving plan should include a diagram of your new office showing where all furniture and equipment should go. Then set a date for moving and make sure to allow yourself enough time to prepare before the movers arrive. Inventory the contents of the office and declutter, if you need to.
  • Delegation – You will need help during the relocation process. It’s not a process that any one person can do alone. Delegate specific responsibilities to your staff members and have a checks and balances procedure in place.
  • Moving Company – When choosing a moving company, make sure you ask if the company has experience with packing, moving, and relocating any large and fragile equipment, like your X-Ray machines. Settle on a moving date and get a price estimate before deciding.
  • Notify Patients – When notifying your patients of your relocation, contact them by phone, mail, and email at least two months before you make the move. It’s also a good idea to post a reminder in your waiting room.
  • Notify Suppliers – Notify your suppliers of the moving date and address change. Make sure you have updated stationary, business cards, and patient hand-outs reflecting the change in your location.
