What could be a better dental marketing tool than showing off happy patient smiles on the practice's dental website? The new Web Portals from Internet Dental Alliance, Inc. (IDA) offer an optional Smile Gallery that makes it easy for doctors to display the results of their work and their satisfied patients (only with their written consent, of course). In today's online world of social media, the Smile Gallery is a strategic way to engage current patients and help them generate referrals when they send their friends and family to see their featured smiles.
The Smile Gallery is one of many optional features doctors can easily incorporate into their dental marketing plans using IDA's Web Portals. From the online Control Panel, dentists can decide which of the many available sections of their dental websites they want to activate to showcase their practices. Some of the other choices include: Office Tour (has the office moved or been recently remodeled?), Dentist Blog (does the doctor like to write about dentistry or community news?), Family Album (has the dentist treated generations of patients in the community?) and many more.
"We make it super-easy to design and customize your personally branded Web Marketing Portal,” says Jim Du Molin, founder of Internet Dental Alliance, Inc. and a recognized expert at marketing for dentists. "The Smile Gallery page is the perfect place to show prospective patients the kinds of results they can expect from choosing you for their dental treatment."
The Smile Gallery can be set up on the practice's Web Portal within minutes using the online Control Panel. It's won't show up on the dental website unless images are added to it. Doctors choose from four different layout options and then upload photos and add captions. It's important to remember that doctors must obtain written consent from patients before using their photos. IDA provides a downloadable consent form dentists can use to make the process easy.
