Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) September 27, 2011
Periodontist, Mark M. Wilson, DDS of Metropolitan Periodontists, P. A., has announced the launch of a new, patient-focused website. The practice launched the website created by dental website design leader, ProSites, Inc. The website contains many interactive features including a practice profile video and a Smile Gallery feature to help patients make better informed decisions about their oral health. The website also utilizes extensive search engine optimization techniques to reach patients and local consumers who are searching for relevant information about the periodontal treatment in Minneapolis Dr. Wilson offers.
“The internet is the way most people are gathering their information. Our website provides us a way to connect with people before they ever walk in our door,” said Dr. Wilson.
Current and prospective patients now have access to financial information, patient testimonials, before and after photos of dental procedures, and other informative content when they visit the website. Some of Dr. Wilson’s services include:
Gum Disease Treatment
Dr. Wilson is also utilizing his website to educate the community on the importance of oral health. The website includes a links page with informative resources as well as a frequently asked questions page with topics ranging from oral hygiene to dental procedures.
“Many studies have shown a close correlation between gum disease and many systemic diseases. The inflammation of the gums causes an immune response putting people at higher risk for heart attacks, strokes, low weight babies, uncontrolled diabetes, and other issues. More correlations are being discovered yearly. It is important to educate people on the health of their mouth and the impact it has on their overall health. Few people are aware of the mouth body connection and that is a big problem,” said Dr. Wilson.
