Choosing a dentist is perhaps one of the most important decisions for a family’s overall health
Frisco, TX (PRWEB) July 01, 2012
ChooseYourDentist.com, a dental search website recently introduced at the Texas Dental Association conference, continues to build its features and applications, making it easier than ever for patients to quickly review information regarding a number of dentists, evaluate them, and request a call or appointment. The site, which allows searches based on specialty, geographic location and other criteria, aims to become the premiere online website for helping patients find a dentist.
“Choosing a dentist is perhaps one of the most important decisions for a family’s overall health,” said site co-founder, Feridoon Amini. “There may be many different oral healthcare needs within a family from braces and root canals, to teeth whitening and bridges. Previously patients would have to look through the telephone book or try contacting dentists on a trial and error basis. With our site, they are able to view a quick microsite profile on the dental practice, which may even include a video introduction. This helps narrow the choices down quickly. If they find a dentist that can meet their family’s needs, they can request an appointment or a telephone call right on our site.”
Amini learned about the difficulties encountered in finding quality dental care from his practicing dentist wife, Dr. Mojan Safavi. She would tell him how patients could feel overwhelmed and confused by the dental search process, often losing valuable time and missing out on preventive care because they couldn’t find a dentist that suited their needs. They might spend time visiting various dental offices, or going back and forth with telephone calls, only to find the practice wasn’t exactly what they had in mind. ChooseYourDentist.com eliminates all this effort by providing everything a potential patient needs to know in one location.
ChooseYourDentist.com conducted extensive research with patients and dental practitioners before developing the site. “We found that some patients think it’s as difficult to find a dentist in their own town as it is in another state. There was a surprising lack of information available to help in the selection process and no way to establish contact. We wanted to eliminate all of that because we believe that regular professional dental healthcare is vital to everyone’s health.”
The website also includes a vast amount of information on the dental industry and dental health to help in the selection process. This feature was included to further patients’ understanding of what each dental practice offers and to facilitate the communications process. The dental search site is working on a mobile site to make it even more convenient for patients to choose a dentist right from their mobile device, while future plans call for adding a live chat feature with dental offices.
