1. Improve & Optimize Your Google My Business Profile


Make sure your Google map listing is claimed, and has accurate information about your practice, including address, hours, services offered, and website URL.

To better enhance your profile, upload photos and videos of your office, dentist & staff.

 

2. Include Cities & “Near Me” In Your Website Content 


Instead of creating content and SEO pages on broad focused areas like “Los Angeles” – focus on hyper-targeted locations like: West Hollywood, CA.

You can also include ZIP Codes in your SEO title & meta description to target a very specific city – ie. “Dentist Near Me Tarzana, CA 91356”

Track Your Patient Opportunities and Watch Your Practice Grow

Lets face it. Going to a doctor’s office is not a decision people make with glee. Especially, visiting a dentist they have never met before. That is why people will inquire but not make the actual visit.

This makes it imperative to have a system in place to track every new patient opportunity. Allowing you & your staff to really review reports and understand what is working and what’s not.

For most purposes, an excel sheet will work great. Otherwise there are a multitude of practice management options that will also work great for your staff.

Here are some Opportunities we recommend tracking:
– Website
– Google Adwords
– Referred Patients
– Direct Mail
– Yelp Leads

You would create a monthly list of opportunities and record vital data for each one – source of inquiry, number of times spoken with, treatment inquiry, actual visit completed and more.

There are many ways you can utilize this data and for each one of these of these sources you can develop a targeted campaign. We recommend starting small. A simple example is tracking patients referred from current patients. If one current patient is introducing more than 3 patients in a year – it would highly benefit you to show your gratitude to that person.

Or if you notice the majority of your web leads are often inquiring about a specific treatment, then you can work with your marketing team to increase the marketing for that treatment.

Recording data may seem like an overwhelming habit for your team, but it is a necessary one if you’d like to see growth.

Many dental offices don’t reach out to a web lead after the first couple of days. That is a mistake.

We are available to create a system and guide your team – please call our office at 818 616 3919 and ask for Parham for a free demo. Thank you.

Social Media Posts Ideas for Dentists

There are 214 million users on Facebook, and over 100 million users on Instagram in the USA at the time of this post.

If marketing and generating more patient appointments is important to you, then social media marketing is a MUST.

Whether you are an associate dentist, partner in a dental practice, or running your own successful practice – you can leverage social media in an easy and effective way to generate more attention to your brand.

One question we often get from our dentist clients is “What should I post on my Facebook or Instagram?”

1. Involvement in the Community

 

Are you a member for your local dental association? Maybe you sit on the board of a non-profit organization you’re passion about….

By posting photos of your involvement in the local community or dental community, you build a personal connection with your patients who see you in a “new light” more than just being their dentist.

• What makes your practice unique

Should I Have a Separate Website for Each of My Practice Locations?

How to Handle Multiple Location Websites for Dentists & Doctors

Many dentists and physicians are fortunate enough to own-and-operate multi-location practices. Thus it’s common for doctors to ask themselves – “Is it best to have a separate website & social media presence for each of my practice locations?”

As business owners, we strive to get the most out of our company resources; this is what allows us to provide our clients with the best service, pay our employees the best compensation, and of course allows us to generate the most profit we can to take home for ourselves and our families.

For 10+ years, we’ve been helping Dentists & Physicians get the most out of their online marketing, and these are few of the most common questions we hear:

“Should I keep the same branded office name for every location or pick a new one?”

“Should I have one website for all of my locations, or should each of them have their own website?”

“What’s the benefit to me if each of my locations has a different website? Won’t it get confusing to patients?”

 

Although there is not one right approach for every doctor, we hope these answers below help shed some light on which decision is best for you and your practice.

 

branding multiple locations practice

 

“Should I keep the same branded office name for every location or pick a new one?”

 

There is value in having a consistent name.

In many ways branding is about creating a consistent experience in the eyes of your patients. Consistency (in terms of name & visuals) helps them distinguish what they can expect from your practice even before walking into your doors.

So if possible, YES keep a consistency in your brand name and choose to change the associated city.

ie.
Happy Tooth Dental – Tarzana
Happy Tooth Dental – Brentwood
Happy Tooth Dental – Simi Valley

multiple practice marketing locations

Benefits of Keeping A Consistent Brand Name

• People easily associate your brand with a given logo / visual identity

• Adding a “city” in addition to your Brand Name will improve SEO & local search result

• Value in building multi-location practices under one “umbrella”

 

“I just bought into a new practice and they have a different name than my other practice – should I change the name of the practice I just bought or keep the same name patients know it by?”

 

In this case, we’ve found it’s best to keep the name of the practice as is – primarily for the benefit of the existing patient base.

Imagine your family physician or dentist told you “I’m selling my practice” – you might be a bit concerned (and rightfully so) with this new, un-familiar doctor taking over the practice.

That’s why any type of consistency or familiarity will go a long way.

branding for multi location dental practice

One way to create brand consistency amongst all of your practice locations with different names is to create a consistent logo.

This allows patients to make a visual connection at first glance with the new logo, yet gives familiarity as the name is the same.

 

“Should I have one website for all of my locations, or should each of them have their own website?”

 

To know this – you must first ask yourself “Is the main goal of my website to generate new patients?”

If your answer is something along the lines of this….

“I don’t really need the website for new patients. All of them are referrals, which is how I like it. I just want a website to be online so patients can see us when they go online or on social media.”

….we’d recommend having 1 Website for All Locations

dental practice marketing

Benefits of Having 1 Website for All Locations

• Easier to maintain

• Less money to build and maintain

• Less chance of duplicate content

 

 

“What’s the benefit to me if each of my locations has a different website? Won’t it get confusing to patients?”

 

Again, ask yourself “Is the main goal of my website to generate new patients?”

If your answer is something along the lines of this….

“Yes! I need my website and social media to help generate new patients consistently. Actually my new location I just bought needs much more help because the old doctor never did any kind of online marketing.”

….we’d recommend having Multiple Websites.

kt docs

Benefits of Having Multiple Websites – 1 Website for EACH Location

Think about it, every time you search for a service online nowadays you put the words “near me” afterwards right? Or you Google what you’re looking for followed by your city name.

Google knows we want our search results to be local to us, and so it favors websites and social media profiles that are focused around one LOCATION /  CITY.

• More web traffic & new patient appointments for each website because of the reason mentioned above

• Showcase the local team (doctor & staff) – important to patients!

• Improved SEO for all your websites

• Gives you more flexibility with services you offer

• Highlight Reviews per each location (Yelp, Google, Facebook)

• Focus your budget & marketing to the location(s) that need “more help”

 

DocSites has 10+ year marketing multi-location practices, ensuring your branding is consistent amongst all websites while creating unique content for Social Media & SEO results.

Dental Websites for More New Patients

In this last month, DocSites has re-launched the websites for two dental practices in California.

As a dentist you might be saying to yourself “I already have one, why do I need a new website?”

Unless you have one foot out the door and are ready to retire in the next 6 months, it’s vital to remember that your website can be your #1 source for generating new patient appointments every single month. 

Reasons you might consider a new dental website:

• Your website is the equivalent of amalgam; out of date and visually off-putting

• You’re not getting enough new patient appointment requests

• Your “cookie cutter” website fails to highlight your dental expertise

• Your 5-star reviews are nowhere to be found on your current site

You Have 5-Star Reviews on Yelp – Now What?

5 star reviews yelp doctors

At the time of this writing Yelp is the #1 Reviews site for dentists and physicians.

Many dentists, physicians and their office staff work hard to provide great customer service – which in turn generates great customer reviews on Yelp.

This in turn leads to more patients booking more appointments.

Even with great 5-star reviews, most doctors still miss these two big opportunities to leverage Yelp for even greater marketing success. 

Here are two simple ways you can get MORE out of your current 5-star reviews.

 

 

1. Embed Yelp Reviews on Your Website

88% of people trust online reviews as much as friends. In order to build trust with prospective patients, make sure you showcase your 5-star reviews on your website.

This is a very easy tactic, that often gets overlooked!

 

 

2. Showcase 5-Star Reviews on Social Media

Many patients (prospective & current) will check out your social media – Facebook, Instagram, Google, etc. – before booking an appointment. They are looking for confidence in their decision to come to your practice.

Strengthen their confidence by showcasing what other patents have to say.

Make sure you or your marketing company is staying on top of the best practices.

Dentists’ Top 3 Mistakes on Yelp

yelp dentists marketing

Do you think just having a “claimed” Yelp profile is all you need for yourself and your practice? Think again! Dentists, your drawbacks on Yelp might be keeping you from many potential new patients.

With 9+ years of dental marketing experience and working with over 250+ practices around the nation here is what we’ve learned.

Dental practices of all sizes and types need to avoid these mistakes we commonly see in our 9+ years of working with over 250 dental practices.

1. Dentist Name is Not in the Profile

If your Yelp profile does not include your name – ie. “John Smith, DDS” then your Yelp profile doesn’t show up when people Google your name!

This is vital because almost everyone who is thinking about becoming your patient will Google your name, even if they’ve been referred to you.

If you are an individual practitioner, put your name full name in your Yelp profile. “ie. – “Happy Tooth Dental – Dr. John Smith, DDS”


2. No Photos!

Over 80% of the information our brains process is visual. If you’re missing photos, you are robbing yourself of the opportunity to show people what makes your practice unique.

Some ideas for photos:
• Dentist(s)
• Office staff
• Before/after photos
• Office environment, waiting room
• Happy patients (get their permission first!)


3. Missing Website

Yelp provides an area for you to place your website address so people can easily access it.

Your website gives you the opportunity to share a lot more information about yourself / your practice that YOU control. Make sure people can get to it quickly, after they’ve read your great reviews.

If you have a website, make sure the link is placed in your profile. If you don’t have a website – why not?!

At the time of this writing Yelp is the #1 Reviews site for dentists and physicians.

Make sure you or your marketing company is staying on top of the best practices.

If you have any questions or would like some help with your Yelp Optimization – please feel free to call (888) 980-4949 or visit www.TheDocSites.com
