Running Your Dental Practice Safely in 2021

2021 is poised to be a complicated year for dental practices across the United States. Most experienced a huge drop in revenue in 2020, and patients are still nervous to return to their dentist due to the COVID-19 outbreak. However, new technology can help you reassure patients and operate safely throughout this unprecedented year.  


Use Online Forms to Screen for COVID-19 

While it’s essential to fill your appointment book, you still need to minimize the risk of COVID-19 to your patients and staff. ProSites has created a COVID-19 screening form that you can send out before each appointment. This form asks about any potential symptoms or exposure to the virus, ensuring that you can postpone risky appointments before patients even walk through the door. Sending out this form also increases patient confidence, as they know that you’re taking the pandemic seriously and looking out for their safety.  


Email Patients About Your Updated Safety Protocols 

Automated emails are essential to reassure patients that you are operating safely. You should mention the increased safety measures that you’ve implemented since the pandemic began. Contactless temperature screenings ensure the safety of your staff and patients, so be sure you are checking the temperature of everyone who enters your practiceYou should also implement a virtual waiting room where patients wait in their cars instead of spending more time in your office. Email your patients about these new policies, and also mention your updated cleaning regimens to maximize patient confidence. 


Catch Up On Canceled 2020 Appointments 

Given the stay-at-home orders and nerves surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, many patients likely cancelled their appointments in 2020. You should begin communicating with these patients and trying to schedule a make-up appointment in early 2021. Use your automated texting service to encourage patients to schedule their next visit. If you don’t hear back within two weeks, follow up with a phone call. If your staff has availability, consider adding after-hours and weekend appointments to make up for lost time and provide additional flexibility.  


Update Your Website 

In addition to updating your patients before upcoming appointments, you should incorporate your revised hours and procedures into your website. A pop-up across the top of your homepage is an easy way to communicate your safety protocols, and it can be changed quickly if situations change in your areaThe ProSites Member Services team can help you update your website, or you can make the changes within your website editor.  


Provide Valuable Info on Social Media 

Your Facebook page is an easy way to communicate with your patients, so post your updated safety procedures and ongoing updates. Be sure to cover your new temperature checks, COVID-19 screening protocols, and your availability over the coming monthsDon’t forget to respond to comments and engage with your followers 


Use Pay-Per-Click Advertising to Bring in New Patients 

One of the quickest ways to attract new patients is Pay-Per-Click advertising. To make the most of the changing marketplace due to COVID-19, target terms like “emergency dental” and “dentist open now.” This will help you attract patients who put off essential work in the past year, and it helps you quickly fill up your appointment book. To maximize the return on your investment, consider partnering with ProSites to handle your marketingWe specialize in Pay-Per-Click for dental practices and conduct constant testing to help you stay on top of the competition. 


Use Virtual Consult Tools to Triage Emergency Dental Cases 

With limited capacity and social distancing, it can be difficult to triage patients and ensure emergency cases take priority. ProSites provides a Virtual Consult tool which can be added right to your website. Patients can upload pictures of their teeth so your team can make an informed decision about what cases to prioritize for emergency appointments. You can also use this tool to create ongoing treatment plans for complicated cosmetic work, and both situations can be billable to insurance. This tool is essential for 2021, when you need to support your patients while limiting contact to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  


Though you’ll need to adjust your operations to support your patients in 2021, it’s still possible to operate your dental practice safely. If you need any help launching online forms or filling your appointment book, reach out to ProSites today!

Grow Your Dental Practice with Video Marketing

One of the biggest challenges to marketing your dental practice is staying on top of the latest trends, but video marketing provides an exciting opportunity to maximize your return on investment and attract new leads. Videos are a central part of modern marketing, and they multiply the impact of your existing marketing channels. Here are some of the benefits of video marketing for dentists: 

Attract New Leads 

Dental marketing is filled with intense competition, so it’s essential to find unique ways to market your practice to local patients. Video marketing is the latest trend within the dental marketing landscape, and it makes it easy to attract new patients in your areaProSites’ video marketing service makes it easy to showcase your amazing staff and beautifully designed office. We can even interview your loyal patients for video testimonials that help seal the deal for prospects who are trying to find the right practice. Best of all, we handle everything from creating the video to launching across all channels, so you get amazing results with minimal effort.  

Maximize Your SEO  

The most important marketing channel for dental practices is SEO, or Search Engine Optimization. This is the process of building your website and content so you rank for terms like “dentist in [your city].” Video marketing has become the latest boom in SEO, as Google has started including videos at the top of many search results. Being the first dentist in your area to create a video ad will help you monopolize these top spots, and with some hard work and good luck, you can also rank with both your video and website. Having two (or even three) of the top ten search results helps fill your appointment book, and patients will feel confident that they’ve made the right decision when they see your state-of-the-art video marketing 

Make the Most of Your Social Media Marketing 

What makes video marketing so exciting is that it naturally supports all of the marketing you’re already doing. In addition to SEO, video marketing integrates seamlessly with social media, increasing your traction on both Facebook and YouTube. Our team creates videos of different lengths and content for each channel, making sure it’s the right fit for different audiences. We also fully optimize each video so it can be found by the right viewers, as well as creating supporting landing pages for Facebook and YouTube ad campaigns. This seamlessly converts leads to new appointments, as well as provides tracking so you can see your exact return on investment. If you’re already marketing on social media, video marketing helps take your efforts to the next level.  

Stand Out from the Crowd 

One of the biggest benefits of video marketing is that it’s an up-and-coming technology that most small businesses are ignoring. Whether they lack the knowledge or the resources, most dental practices aren’t taking the time to take advantage of all the benefits video marketing creates. By being the first dentist in your area to create video ads, you can stand out from the crowd and be the first to reap the SEO and lead generating benefits of video marketing.  


If you’re ready to showcase your beautiful practice, friendly staff, and loyal patients, reach out to ProSites today! Our team will come out and record videos at your location so you can highlight your expertise and excellent service. Then our internet marketing experts will help share your video far and wide to help you attract new patients!

Discovery of Oral Lesions Possibly Tied to COVID-19

A dental team found a previously undiscovered symptom that could help detect asymptomatic COVID-19 virus cases: oral lesions. Dentists at The Baltimore Center of Advanced Dentistry in Lutherville noted gum bleeding and multiple oral lesions in the mouths of two teen patients who normally display “exquisite oral hygiene.” Concerned by this development, they called in Dr. Gary Bauman, who requested permission to perform polymerase chain reaction (PCR) COVID-19 tests.

Both patients, and several family members, tested positive for COVID-19, but displayed no other symptoms. “The lesions were the only sign of COVID-19,” Bauman said. Samples from the lesions were then sent to the lab, which confirmed that they weren’t caused by herpes or other known viruses. This may be the first case of diagnosing an asymptomatic case of COVID-19 from lesions in the mouth, and Dr. Bauman has submitted their findings for further study.

Dr. Bauman wants dentists everywhere to be aware of these potential symptoms. “We have asymptomatic cases out there,” Bauman added. “I don’t want dentists to let their guards down. Some people are getting vaccinated, but those aren’t the ones we need to worry about. The ones who don’t know they have it or aren’t telling you, those are the ones we should be looking for to prevent the spread.”

If you notice lesions in the mouths of otherwise healthy patients, it may be a sign of an asymptomatic carrier. Keeping a record of a similar finding could help further research and understand asymptomatic spread.

ProSites is proud of all the work dentists have done and are doing to prevent community spread. We are particularly proud of our customer, Dr. Bauman, for this ground-breaking discovery!

Using the Latest Technology to Increase Patient Satisfaction

Finding ways to delight your patients is essential for the modern dental practice, as it allows you to fill your appointment book, increase referrals, and build a stellar reputation in your community. Though excellent customer service is still the first step, technology gives you the opportunity to go above and beyond for your patients. Here are ways to increase patient satisfaction using the latest dental office technology.  


Provide Online Appointment Booking 

One of the biggest benefits you can provide for your patients is the ability to book appointments right from your website. In today’s climate, online appointment booking helps patients stay current on their dental work. Patients will appreciate the ability to see your schedule and book right from their phones, tablets, or computers. Your staff will also appreciate the break from making appointment reminder calls, allowing them to spend more time running your office.  


Offer Appointment Reminders by Text 

Your patients will have different preferences about how to receive appointment reminders, but the vast majority prefer the simplicity and convenience of a text message. According to a recent Hanover Research Study, over 80% of dental patients prefer to receive their upcoming appointment reminders via text message. Text messages also have an average response time of 90 seconds, so you’ll save time for your staff while still confirming each upcoming appointment. Offering appointment reminders by text both increases patient satisfaction and streamlines how your office is run.  


Stay in Communication Between Appointments 

In addition to delivering excellent customer service during each appointment, you can increase patient satisfaction by staying in contact between their visits. Creating helpful and informational Facebook Posts keeps you top-of-mind with your patients and increases referrals. In addition, you can send out holiday greetings to show your patients that you care. Both Facebook posts and holiday messaging can be included in your PracticeMojo plan, so be sure to take advantage of these essential features! 


Simplify Dental Care for Families 

Families are an essential part of running your practice, and busy parents are extra appreciative of the latest dental technology. With PracticeMojo, you can send the entire family reminders in the same text, making it simple for parents to confirm appointments for all their children in one go. With Online Billing through ProSites, parents can also pay for their entire family’s services online, and they can use your Online Forms to quickly confirm changes for individual family members without having to re-enter all their informationParents are more likely to recommend your services when you simplify their busy schedules, so offer these dental technologies to increase referrals!  



While you should still provide excellent customer service, patient satisfaction also relies on their experiences before and after each appointment. Providing appointment reminders, consistent communication, and features like online appointment booking helps to remind patients why they come back to your dental practice and encourages them to recommend you to their friends and family.

In the modern world, building a stellar online reputation is essential to attracting new patients and giving them the confidence to book that first appointment.

Our Dental Reviews Pro feature gives you control over your online reviews, allowing you to highlight glowing reviews from your patients.

How Does Digital Marketing Help Your Dental Practice Grow?

Digital Marketing will help you grow your practice.

Learn How to Use Dental Marketing Strategies to Engage Patients

Check out the complete webinar here:
Communicate Now and Be Ready to Grow!

Dental practices that utilize digital marketing tools to reach and engage their patients will experience increased patient retention and attract new patients. When patients are left in the dark, unsure if their dental office is open or if they should reschedule their next appointment, their satisfaction with the dental office may decrease. Those frustrated patients may then seek the help of other dental practices that are actively marketing their new office hours or virtual dental care.

There is good news. When dental practices send proactive and helpful digital patient communications consistently, they let their patients know they care. Dental practices that share frequent patient communication on their website or Facebook page, will let their patients know that their practice is open and ready to provide patient care today.

Here are helpful tips that dental practices have successfully implemented online:

  1. Update your digital patient communication marketing channels on a regular basis. To ensure that patients are engaged, be sure the home page of your dental practice website, your Facebook posts, your Google business page, your Yelp page, and your email or text to send patient communications at the same time. It is recommended that your messages are updated weekly.
  2. Ask your patients if they have a preference between email, phone, or text communications. By providing patients with helpful updates using their preferred communication method, dental practices will increase patient satisfaction and engagement. PracticeMojo, provides patients with the ability to select from text, emails, automated phone calls, or even postcards as their preferred communication method.
  3. Create a dental patient communication plan calendar. Dental practices can use a team calendar to share information about their new safety practices, staff birthdays, or interesting facts about new dental technology. To get the best results be sure the posts are fun and engaging. Be sure your communication plan provides concise answers to common patient questions like:
    • How do I get emergency dental treatment?
    • What are your new safety protocols for cleanings?
    • Is my dentist seeing patients? If they are open, what their new office hours?
    • How do I reach my dentist if I am in pain?
    • Should I reschedule or keep my appointment?
  1. Keep your website updated first and foremost. If a patient visits a dental practice website that is outdated, they are likely to move to another local dentist office website. Be sure to create a COVID-19 update page on your dental practice website in case patients have questions about new dental office procedures and safety protocols.
  2. Add live chat to your current website. Dental practices can use live chat features on the home page of their website to quickly answer questions and address any concerns they may have. Live chat is also a convenient way to engage new patients without additional in office risk exposure. Live chat allows dental practices to track commonly asked patient questions. Be sure to take those questions and add them to website under your new COVID-19 response page.
  1. Get creative and add your own personal touch. The most successful dental practices will find ways to make dental care fun and informative online. If your dental practice caters to pediatric dental care, then consider a social media campaign that would appeal to a family with children. If you are a cosmetic dentist, create videos or social media campaigns that appeal to patients looking to improve the appearance of their smile. One cosmetic dental practice launched a marketing campaign called “Tooth Talk Thursdays” to share helpful dental care tips weekly.


The greatest benefit of investing in digital patient communication tools is that increased patient satisfaction will lead to positive patient reviews. More patient reviews will translate to more patients. While dental office digital marketing requires time and effort, it will bring in a steady stream of new patients that will boost your practice’s revenue. If you decide to focus on your patients and outsource your help to a team of marketing experts, reach out to ProSites for a consultation.

We have a team of experts that will help you develop a strategy and execute a tailored digital marketing plan.

Using Dental Office Marketing to Attract New Patients

If you’re looking to expand your practice, take the time to explore all your different marketing options. Services like SEO and social media provide slow but steady growth, whereas pay-per-click advertising can aggressively grow your patient base, but with an increased cost. This breakdown helps you review your dental office marketing options and make an informed decision! 


The Benefits of Dental Office Marketing 

When your practice is just starting out, it can be tempting to just let new patients find you organically. But steadily growing your patient base is essential for the ongoing health of your practice, especially as patients may move away, change insurance providers, or leave your practice for other reasons. Having a strategic and consistent plan for your dental office marketing keeps your practice busy, increases revenue, and helps expand the impact you can have in your community. So whether you just founded your practice, or have been in business for years, marketing is worth the investment! 


Use Patient Reviews to Build Your Reputation 

When you look for a new service, where do you start? Like everyone else, you probably look at review websites like Yelp, Google My Business, and Angie’s List to make sure you’re hiring the right provider. To maximize the impact of your reviews, ask your patients to leave positive reviews on these sitesIf you work with ProSites, we help you send automated review requests after annual appointments, but you can also do this manually by writing your own emails. 

When choosing which review websites to focus your efforts on, we recommend evaluating your competition. If they have the most reviews on Yelpsend your patients there to submit reviews for your practice. Once you have a comfortable amount of reviews on the first site, you can direct patients to another platform. By switching between all three reviews platforms, potential patients can read about your great customer service wherever they look!

Social media is an essential tool for attracting leads and engaging with your current patients. Facebook allows you to continually interact with your communityshare dental care tips, and build your brand awarenessTo maximize the impact of your dental office marketing, you should launch a few posts every week. Rather than writing your posts one at a timecompose one month’s worth of posts and have your office staff copy and paste the content onto your Facebook page on scheduled days. If your staff is too busy, you can also hire a service like ProSites to create content from scratch and post it for your team. 


Use Search Engine Optimization to Gain Local Traffic 

You’ve likely heard the term “Search Engine Optimization,” and its abbreviation “SEO,” ait’s an essential part of your dental office marketing. Since patients won’t drive too far to visit their dentist, local SEO should be your central focus to find patients near you. For each service you offer, like family dentistry, teeth cleaning, root canals, you’ll want to create custom content that is focused around your location. This will help potential patients find you when they search for the services they need most! 

It takes time and dedication to create an ongoing SEO strategy, especially since Google constantly re-evaluates pages and prioritizes different factors. Since dental offices are busy supporting patients, SEO may be the best option to outsourceDental office marketing services like ProSites will create pages that focus on the best keywords for your practice and include all the technical minutia that will help you to rank.
