So what’s a dentist to do? Getting more people to put their fears aside and take their dental hygiene seriously, there are steps you can take to promote your business in a friendly light.

Ready to exude trust and friendliness? Adopt these online marketing tips:

Create a welcoming website

Having a professional online presence is crucial for any business today, but it’s that much more so for the dental industry. If you want to combat that scary stereotype, having a warm and welcoming website that projects professionalism is a huge step in the right direction.

If you spent years studying the complexities of the maxillofacial area and not HTML and CSS code – don’t fret. With Wix, you can create a website that not only looks every bit as professional as your practice, but includes lots of great features for both you and your clients. And, we’ve got lots of great health and wellness templates to get you started in no time.

Some tips:

  • Get color psychology on your side and go with a calming color scheme of pale greens and blues.
  • Create a detailed ‘About’ page that introduces your staff with friendly pictures and even short bios.

Start a blog

Centered around all things health and industry related, write about tips and tools that will educate your readers, and help to establish you as an expert in your field. Creating a blog will not only create a sense of caring and trust for your practice, it will also make the Google gods happy. Best of all, you can easily add a blog to your Wix site.

Tip: Post regularly, even if this means starting out slowly with shorter posts. You don’t need to write novels on any one subject – the quality of your content is way more important than the quantity.
