Since 2020, many businesses have seen their revenue plunge, and dentists and orthodontists–though absolutely essential–are not entirely immune to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. That said, although most dental offices are opening back up and eager to receive new patients, dental marketing may help you get closer to your business goals. In this article, we will discuss how you can market your dental/orthodontic practice to give it a boost as it gets back to normal operations.
Think About What Sets Your Dental Practice Apart From Others
The best way to kick off your dental marketing strategy is to ask yourself what makes you different from everyone you compete against. In dentistry, competition is tight, but every business owner has their own value they bring to the table.
Start With Asking Yourself Why
Why do you do what you do? Stating your unique values is a great way to make an emotional connection with your intended audience, aiding in generating more leads. This will be a critical component of your branding and marketing strategies, which go hand-in-hand.
Next, determine why your orthodontic practice is a valuable asset to our community. Perhaps you have unique experience abroad, speak multiple languages, have an incredible ability to work with anxious children and quickly earn their trust, etc. When you determine what makes you unique, the hardest part is over!
Differences Between Your Dental Practice And Others Can Be Found In Technology
Keep in mind that implementing cutting-edge and state-of-the-art technology such as OrthoPhoto App is also a trait worth mentioning. If you don’t already use OrthoPhoto App, it’s time to reconsider!
OrthoPhoto App is our smartphone application that transforms how you track your patients’ progress throughout their dental braces treatments. Rather than using bulkier, complex, or poor-quality photo cameras, OrthoPhoto converts your smartphone camera into a tool for dental photography. Upon taking photos of your patients’ teeth as they progress through their dental braces treatment, the app automatically crops and sorts the orthodontic photographs into a template. Not only does this speed up the process for your patient who is already pressed for time, but this also means you don’t need to spend much time after-hours sorting through your images.

In the marketing world, visuals and smooth experiences go a long way. If your website is outdated, lacks mobile compatibility, and struggles to rank on search engines, then your custom marketing strategy and branding message won’t get far.
