Last month was our best month ever by like $10,000, which is a good increase, obviously. This month I think we’re going to do better than that. It’s hard to … I’ve never had income like this. I had an associate for… Dr. Smith’s been with me almost two years. I wanted to build the practice, and I wanted to slow up, and I wanted to get some new patients in for Dr. Smith. I decided that was the way to do it. I didn’t want to go with direct marketing, and I didn’t want a billboard, and I didn’t want radio, TV, and all that just didn’t appeal to me, so I thought web was the way to go. After we got online, I could see things. A lot of patients that were coming in were saying that they found us on the internet, or I’ll ask, and I had somebody the other day say, I said “How did you find me?” They said, “I Googled the best dentist in Belleville.” And I go, “Well, you got to the right place, it worked.” The last six months, six to eight months, have been very exceptional.
I’ve had more new patients than I’ve ever had. My income for the year last year was up, and this year is going, the way it’s going, it’s going to beat that by several percentage points. We’re doing a lot better this year than we did last year, and I was extremely happy with last year. If I had it to do over, there’s absolutely no doubt I would join SmartBox. I like the idea of working with a company that only does dentists. There’s not many; I don’t know if there’s any others, but they’re one of the few who do only dentists. We’re different than an optometrist. We’re different than a physician or an attorney or a barber shop so … I think it’s important. That’s very important to me.
