How Dentists Should Use Facebook Polls

As a dentist, if you’re on social media – you already know the importance of staying engaged with current and potential patients. In addition to posting about dental hygiene tips, special offers or promotions, and office news – have you considered using a Facebook poll as part of your content strategy?

Asking poll questions is a something that both large and small companies can benefit from asking. It allows you to:
