The site is seen as another communication tool for the practice to use in reaching potential patients and keeping existing patients informed and educated.
“We are quite happy with this new site,” said Dr. Liz Shelly, a teeth whitening expert who also offers sedation dentistry for fearful patients. “It is easy to navigate and it has information we trust will be useful to visitors.”
It seems everyone goes online to conduct research nowadays, and this practice knows that new residents may not know someone who can recommend a dentist. For that reason, a website that can be easily found during an Internet search and explains the Palmetto Dental Arts treatment philosophy and approach is helpful, Dr. Smith said.
“For current patients, we plan to keep them informed about our practice via the blog,” Dr. Shelly said. “We also view this as an ideal platform to educate them on new, innovative treatments we introduce to the practice.”
The new website provides background information about the dentists and describes the role staff members plays in each patient’s visit. It describes what to expect during new patient exams and offers information about general and cosmetic dentistry procedures offered.
“People often wonder about porcelain veneers or dental implants and whether these types of treatments could benefit them,” Dr. Smith said. “We’re providing a wealth of information on these topics.”
