Dental practices are using every advantage they can to stay competitive. Implementing PatientCaptureNow is a great way to stand out in a crowded field and attract high-quality patients. It makes building relationships so much easier, since the prospective patient feels like they already have a connection to your practice.
My Dental Agency began as an idea from Jackie Ulasewich who, after over a decade of working in dental marketing and business development, felt passionately about helping dental practices grow their businesses and add more new patients. My Dental Agency has taken the guesswork out of marketing a dental practice and has enabled its clients to focus their message, reach their target audience, and increase their new patient opportunities through effective marketing campaigns.

New year, new you, as the saying goes. Everyone is making their New Year’s resolutions, vowing to eat better, exercise more, volunteer at shelter, and begin composting in the backyard.

So, let’s think about making some New Year’s Marketing Resolutions to start the year off with a bang and hopefully avoid some costly mistakes.
