For the month of January I am going to share ideas to help you grow your practice via your office social media platforms. (You’ll find that many of the ideas can easily be used to exceed your patients expectations during their visits to the office as well as to engage with local businesses in your community.)

Social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Google My Business, LinkedIn, Instagram, Pinterest, Snapchat, Tik Tok, Blogs, Online Community News Pages, YouTube, and more help to build your dental practice. Even if you’re not a fan of social media, please remember that most likely many of your patients and potential patients are using these platforms regularly. You want to be where they are and since first impressions matter – you want to make sure that your office is making a positive impression. Just like with reviews on your Google listing you want reviews/recommendations from your patients on your office Facebook page too.
How Can Social Media Help Your Practice? Here are just a few ways…
- Build relationships between your office team and potential new patients
- Stay in Touch with your Active and Inactive Patients
- Increase your Online Presence
- Learn what your patients/potential patients want
- Improve Community Involvement
- Manage and Increase your Online Reputation
- Great Way to Advertise Special Events, Office Specials, and feature Dental Products/Services
- Excellent Dental Education Tool
Surely, you can see that in order to be effective and successful with your use of social media, it’s not a case of “if you build it they will come”. Yes, you must build it; however, you must also develop and nurture it. It takes time and effort to build relationships. The key is engagement. Just sporadically posting to your sites will not effectively engage your audience.
Do you find the tips & ideas that I share helpful to your practice? It would make my day to hear from you! Please take a second to leave a review/recommendation for me on GOOGLE and/or FACEBOOK Thank you!!
