Marketing Health Screenings to Employers Adds Value to Dental Insurance Plans

July 9, 2018

dental insurance marketing tnt dentalDental businesses need dental insurance like a flower needs rain; money coming in from insurance helps them stay afloat. In fact, over half the revenue of dental practices is funded by dental insurance – that plays a big role!

Dental insurance is a significant factor not only for dentists, but especially patients. As a dentist and a patient, you understand how it plays a part in your revenue, but also how it hits your personal pocketbook when you flip on the other side of the chair and play the role of patient. Each type of insurance has its pros and cons that work for dentists and patients on a case-by-case basis. In this article, we’ll go into how you can navigate the insurance waters and work them both to yours and your patients’ advantage.

Why Your Online Reputation Matters (and How to Handle Good and Bad Reviews)

June 20, 2018

How to get 5-star dentist reviewsReputation management for dentists has greatly evolved over the past few decades. Where you once typically received feedback in the form of comment cards and word-of-mouth praise (and disdain) has now transformed into mass feedback in multiple public spaces, through the help of the internet.

Even if your practice doesn’t have a website (and if that’s the case, you need to give us a call at TNT Dental today!), your practice is online… and, people are talking about it. You have two choices: put your head in the sand and ignore it, or embrace the shift to digital and find out what you can do to stay active online, engage with the customer base and build a good reputation with your patients.

Learn to Love Long Scrolling Websites… or Get Left in the Past!

June 12, 2018

Dentist explaining why she does not like long scrolling websites

Once upon a time, websites that scrolled on and on were seen as a death knell for businesses’ online presence, including dental practices. People weren’t going to scroll for more information; if you didn’t have all your information “above the fold,” it was essentially lost in the internet ether.

Then came 2015 and the shift to mobile. As you know from our previous blog posts, including “Generating Patients for your Practice using a Custom Dental Website,” about 60 to 70% of your viewers are visiting your site from a mobile device. So, in order to stay relevant, web designers had to reconfigure the look and feel of websites. That shift took long scrolling sites from the losing column of web design over to the winning.

Users have become accustomed to scrolling with ease; it’s often easier to scroll and find what you’re looking for versus clicking on a page and waiting for it to load. Look at young kids today; hand them a smartphone or tablet, and they’ve got scrolling down pat!

Using Custom Dental Videos to Grow Your Practice

Best custom video SEO for dentists

Just take a minute and think about how many videos you watch each day. Don’t forget those scrolling videos in your Facebook timeline, the links to a YouTube page or the stories on either your favorite newscast or news station’s website. Is it five? Ten? Twenty, or more? Go ahead, don’t be ashamed, because you’re in good company. According to Forbes, a third of all the time people spend online is dedicated to watching videos.

Video marketing is booming, and it seems as though everyone wants in on the action…or, so you think. What consumers seek in their providers and what providers want to offer their customers are rarely the same. As a dentist, you know you need to have a solid website and establish a good online marketing strategy to engage current patients and attract new ones, but are you incorporating video into your plans? By using custom dental videos, you are differentiating yourself from the competition.
