Dental practices obtain a majority of their new patients from word-of-mouth referrals
SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) September 12, 2008
The new program takes advantage of Demandforce's leading online patient communication system to proactively contact patients after their visit enabling the patient to submit a certified public review of their experience. Demandforce (http://www.demandforce.com) has established a relationship with Google to transmit public reviews and practice information to Google for the purpose of populating the practice results in Google.
Demandforce will be demonstrating the new program at the California Dental Association conference this weekend at booth #1639.
"Dental practices obtain a majority of their new patients from word-of-mouth referrals," said Rick Berry, the President of Demandforce. "Providing certified reviews from over 5 million patients along with pertinent information such as staff information, specialties, hours of operation and practice description directly to search engines like Google enables prospective new patients to find the information they need to make an informed decision regarding scheduling an appointment with a new dental practice."
Many of Demandforce's clients have experienced the benefit of this trend first-hand.
"We have been using Demandforce's Certified Review module for less than 3 months and have received several dozen certified reviews," said Dr. Steven Brattesani of San Francisco. "Demandforce has helped us gain traction from search engines like Google, particularly when a prospective patient enters '94123 dentist' or 'San Francisco Dentist' in the search box. This has led to increased exposure for my practice and ultimately many new patients."
According to Dr. Mark Hale, Chief Technology Officer of Demandforce and world renowned Internet architect, "the combination of Google and Demandforce D3 technology is unique as it allows for reviews to be certified for the first time. This builds consumer confidence that the reviews are from real patients. Moreover, the Practice has at its disposal the breadth of Demandforce D3 services to maintain their reputation throughout the lifetime of the patient."
In addition to certified reviews, Demandforce's offering to dental practices also includes review management, a real-time reputation web site, Google Profile management, integrated online scheduling and analytics. This offering is available free of charge to all Demandforce D3 customers as part of their regular monthly subscription.
