One of our clients recently wrote an article about how to build a successful dental practice, and we think he hit the nail on the head when he explained that marketing is a key factor in his success.
Instagram is one very popular social media platform — it has over a billion users. We love it and we think more dental practices should be using it as part of their digital marketing strategy. It’s an easy way to create awareness around your practice’s brand and reach more potential patients. Just follow the steps we have outlined for you here, and you’ll be on your way to becoming an Instagram aficionado in no time.
It’s 2022! A new year means new goals and a fresh start. So what can dental practices do to make this year different and better than the last? Here are three important marketing strategies that we think every practice should implement in 2022.
Marketing a dental practice is mostly about attracting new patients, right? Well… not really. Of course you want to grow your practice with new patients, but neglecting the patients you already have — the core of your business — is never a good idea. If your practice is successfully attracting new patients but losing existing ones, then the net result is not likely to be positive at the end of the year. Real growth happens when your practice can gain new patients AND continue to maintain active, profitable relationships with the existing ones as well.
Women are making their mark in every traditionally male-dominated industry, from finance to space travel, and definitely in dentistry. Where just a decade ago about 24% of all dentists were women, now that figure is closer to 35%, and women graduating from dental school nearly equal the number of men.
Don’t make these ghastly mistakes. Heed my warning before it’s too late! Muahahahaha… Just kidding. Every dental practice has had a marketing setback or two. The good news is mistakes like the ones I just described don’t have to turn into a horrible nightmare.

Dental practices interested in expanding their marketing efforts or perhaps just venturing into digital marketing for the first time may be in the dark about some of the major differences and potential consequences of handling things in house versus trusting it all to a marketing agency. In fact, the differences can be quite significant, and it is important to know about them before making a decision on which direction to go.
All dental practices are pretty much the same, right? They all offer the same basic services and have similar equipment, and for the most part their patients want the same things. Of course not! Yes, there are some patients who typically only need routine services and for them, perhaps one dental practice is as good as the next. But there are so many more patients out there looking for something more special from their dentist.
