Our All-In-One Dental Practice Marketing & Management Software System can help you:
Modern Dental Marketing
A website for your practice
A website is the cornerstone of any modern practice. It gives you a place to host content, offer information on your services and residents, and send the right signals to Google for search engine optimization (SEO) purposes.
Not only this, a website can play a huge role in your practice’s local SEO. Having information about your local practice(s) on your site, coupled with the right copy, can increase the chances your practice comes up when people search for certain terms.
Developing and maintaining proper social media pages, especially a Facebook page, allows your practice to stay in constant contact with current and potential patients. You can answer questions through the messenger feature, which can be an added bonus for patients shopping different practices.
Having a Facebook page also gives your patients a quick way to review you, which can be a great signal to those struggling to decide on a new dentist.
Lastly, social media is a great place to both show the human side of your office and host contests or giveaways. If your practice has a fun costume party or festive gathering, sharing pictures can be a great way to humanize your practice even more and help your patients feel closer to your staff.
Creating quality content and sharing it on your practice’s site is a great way to show your expertise. Not only this, it’s an essential part to SEO and will help your site rank higher on Google, increasing your chances of being found by those in need.
Proper content marketing can also result in organic traffic growth, which can help reduce your spending on any paid campaigns.

Build stronger relationships
Content marketing, such as blog posts, articles, and social media, allow you to build meaningful relationships with your patients and potential patients by creating content that answers their questions.
Through social media, you can also reply to questions and concerns, humanizing your practice and brand even more. This is also a great opportunity to show your expertise in your field, giving you more credibility and increasing your chances of people choosing your practice over another.
New ways to grow your practice
Digital dental marketing can open many doors for your practice and create new opportunities for growth.
If you’re regularly posting original, insightful content, you will quickly become recognized as an expert in your field. Not only can this lead to an influx of patients, it can also turn into speaking engagements, which are another great way to spread the word about your practice.

Social media will play a bigger role
Video marketing will boom
Creating original video content can be expensive and time consuming. Yet many digital marketing experts predict video content marketing will continue to grow in upcoming years. A part of this is due to internet users spending one-third of their time online viewing video.
Not only will video marketing grow, but the type of videos will continue to grow as well. Rather than general promotional videos, users will expect to see “meet the staff” videos, informational videos on various conditions, and so on. Much like content marketing, the videos will have to do more than market your business; they’ll have to showcase your expertise and the people powering your practice.
Interactive content will become commonplace
Many practices, whether in dentistry or otherwise, offer tools and pieces of interactive content. These assets can help visitors determine potential causes of their pain, estimate insurance costs, or get recommendations on diet.
As more and more practices continue to adopt interactive content and tools, it will become expected that every practice has their own offerings. Investing the funds necessary to create interactive content now could pay off even more, as you’ll be ahead of the curve and stand out even more while your competition catches up.
Dental Office Advertising
Paid social is different from paid search in many ways, though both work by displaying ads to your target audience. Although paid search works with search queries, Facebook ads work by targeting defined audiences with specific online behavior. So, while potential patients might not be actively searching for a dentist, they can become familiar with your brand.
A great way to look at Facebook ads is to think of them as advertisements in community publications, though with much more granular audience targeting. Did you know that 80 percent of healthcare decisions are made by women, according to the U.S. Department of Labor? Facebook ads allow you to specifically target females to conserve ad spend and increase the likelihood of conversion.
Direct mail: dental postcards and brochures
EMR integration means less work for practices. Because patients can see appointment availability in real time, there's no need for someone at your practice to manually action the request. As some patients may call or schedule an appointment in person, it also means that a member of your staff would no longer have to update your online booking tool with the latest availability.
PatientPop can integrate with the most widely used EMRs in the healthcare and dental markets and continuously works to offer more integrations. Our EMR integrations include companies that we partner with as well as systems that are widely-used among physicians and dentists. This includes athenahealth, AdvancedMD, and Dentrix. In fact, PatientPop can integrate with 90 percent of the dental market.
