Healthcare providers, including dentists, have seen a lot of changes in both patient care and business practices develop over the past few years, as post-pandemic disruptions continue to shine a light on changing societal values and norms. In response to these trends, many providers are showing an increased focus on environmental, social, and governance #ESG policies in an effort to help strengthen their practices and provide a higher, more conscientious level of patient care.

What A Strong ESG Approach Can Do for Your Practice

Targeting ESG values can have an enormous positive impact on the health of your dental practice, ultimately helping you to grow your patient base, increase trust in your brand, and ultimately improve your practice’s financial performance. Some other significant benefits to adding ESG practices to your corporate commitment include:

Attracting — And Motivating — Better Talent

Dental assistants, dental hygienists, and even front office personnel are in short supply, so having a strong, cohesive team environment can help you attract and retain the personnel you need to provide a truly exceptional patient experience. Many of today’s applicants are concerned about issues of equity, environmental progress, and other ESG-focused values, so addressing these on a corporate level can show prospective hires that you also care about these ethical standards.

Growing Your Patient Base Through Diversity and Inclusion

When you partner with a wide range of suppliers and business partners that exemplify diversity, you are letting your patients know that your practice honors and cares for everyone, allowing more people to feel comfortable at your office. And, for those patients who have a heart for social justice and equality, your participation in ESG-focused strategies such as supplierdiversity lets them know you are serious about inclusion. 

Helping Patients — and the Planet

Sustainable practices are important for many people, so partnering with suppliers and distributors of products that meet sustainability standards is critical. In fact, environmental sustainability in oral care is an emerging topic among dental professionals. More dental offices are looking for ways to reduce their environmental impact not only by sourcing greener dental-specific products, but also by adopting more sustainable office practices such as waste reduction, paper reduction, and using greener products such as remanufactured printer cartridges.
