A visit to your dental website is often the first meaningful interaction a potential new patient has with your business. It’s your virtual front office that needs to be inviting and useful for existing patients and potential leads alike.

It’s still very important to optimize your online presence. But rarely should it be done in the way the resident dental marketing expert tells you it should.
