Created with practice management professionals in mind, the free online community is dedicated to improving dental practice production by increasing the number of new patients who go to the dentist and accept treatment.
Positioned as ‘The New Patient Destination for Dentistry,’ Dentistry.com’s main purpose is to maximize practice production by building stronger relationships between dentists and patients. It features a search engine for patients that supports filtering by a number of criteria, including insurance network – one of the top ways patients choose a dentist. Additionally, the site offers a comprehensive directory of dental practices across the country and provides patients with the ability to schedule appointments online.
The website capitalizes on the shift of consumers to making booking decisions based on consumer reviews and the ability to make an appointment online. "People live and conduct all their business on their phones today. Dentistry is challenged because it has not embraced this new mobile-centric reality. Complicating things is the fact that consumers don't value dentistry as they do more trendy healthcare pursuits like yoga and meditation," said Brian McCarthy, Executive Vice President of Dentsply Sirona's subsidiary Futuredontics and leader of the Dentistry.com project team. "Dentistry.com is the online destination where the industry can band together to elevate the perception of dentistry to its proper place in healthcare."
Practice management professionals are invited to claim their dentist’s profile for free on Dentistry.com’s directory of dental practices. Practice managers can manage their dentist’s page on the site where they can list information about their staff, their practice, and other relevant information that would assist patients regarding their search. Dentistry.com’s time-saving ”set it and forget it” design is so easy to use that practice profiles can completed and “live” in just five minutes.
Dentistry.com offers access to national and local audiences, improves website SEO, and helps dentists connect with more new patients by listing services, insurance plans, business hours and more. Most importantly, the site enables patients to schedule appointments online which is a proven way to keep practice schedules full.
In the near future, Dentistry.com will roll out more features, including treatment plan acceptance tools and enhanced practice profiles. For more info, please visit www.dentistry.com or go to Claim My Practice to complete a free profile.
