The Key to Maximizing Your Dental Marketing ROI

Dentists tend to market with a broad brush, so to speak. That’s understandable – the vast majority of people have teeth, and therefore need dental care at some point. But such a broad approach can waste a significant percentage of your marketing investment. Even though the U.S. economy is enjoying a much-deserved period of growth, many dental prospects can still only afford the basics of dental care. Many others want only the treatment that insurance will pay for. With the trend toward cost-shifting toward the patient that shows no sign of slowing down, even patients with dental ...

What’s in Your New Dental Patient Pipeline?

Dentists who advertise like most other dentists get what most other dentists get – price shoppers, insurance-driven patients, and one-and-dones with little or no loyalty to the practice. You can keep a dental practice going with those patients, but it’s not pretty or fun.

The Changing Facebook Equation For Dentists

2018 is ushering in some significant changes to Facebook, and dentists should take note. In January, Facebook let it be known that for page content to appear in individuals’ news feeds, it would require a high level of authentic engagement from his or her own personal networks. In early February, the “thumbs down” or disapprove button was reported to be in a testing phase. It’s seen as another measure to decrease the amount of inappropriate or abusive content appearing in news feeds. Finally, Facebook last month announced a new measure to bolster social interaction between ...

Prosthodontists are facing more competition than ever. But this time the competition isn’t coming from other prosthodontists, it’s from general dentists. To be fair, there are relatively few general dentists who place dental implants. However, there are a lot of general dentists who restore implants, create and place bridges, design and create space retainers, and provide dentures.
