At this point it’s probably safe to say the majority of us have some form of social media flowing in our lives, if not have multiple accounts we can check by a press of a button. We’re living in the age of the NOW where we can even ask our phones a question and *blink* there’s the answer! I’m willing to even bet your grandma has a Facebook account #WoahNana!
It’s no surprise that technology gets more advanced year after year and in the dental world we have embraced it! It has helped us connect with our patients on a more personal level and express who we are more effectively to prospective patients. Word of mouth is by far the #1 reason why people choose us and then straight to the Google machine they go to learn more! Social media has helped us get honest feedback with reviews and even schedule you more conveniently. When you consider that one day in time people thought the only cure for a toothache was to kiss a donkey, I’d say we’ve come a long ways! There are still some practices that don’t make social media in the dental office a priority and we think that’s bologna!
