May 7, 2013 - Fred Joyal Explores the Dangerous Mind of the Dental Patient

LOS ANGELES, CA (May 7, 2013) – 1-800-DENTIST®, the nation’s premier dental marketing company, is hosting a new free Webinar called "The Dangerous Mind of the Dental Patient," led by founder Fred Joyal. The Webinar will reveal surprising insights into what patients really look for in a dental practice: what factors influence their choice, what drives patients away and how to keep patients coming back.

The hour-long online course will be held on Wednesday, May 22, beginning at 11am PST, and is open to all dentists and office staff. After the presentation, host Fred Joyal will remain available online to answer attendee questions.

"Today's patients demand significantly more from dentists – more information, more convenience and more flexibility," said Fred Joyal. "If you or your team fails to deliver in even one area, patients will move on to the next practice. This Webinar will provide valuable tips on how to meet patient expectations and make your practice stand out among the crowd."

Fred Joyal is best known for founding 1-800-DENTIST, the industry’s leading source for new patients with over 7 million new patient leads delivered to date. He is also the author of the bestselling book "Everything is Marketing: The Ultimate Strategy for Dental Practice Growth," now in its 4th edition and updated to address the new challenges faced by today’s business minded dental practitioner. In addition, Joyal is an international lecturer, a regular contributor to dental publications, and owner of his own dental marketing blog,, which routinely delves into topics like patient loyalty and retention, websites and online presence.

"What’s most shocking," added Joyal, "is that most practices don’t even know that their choices are costing them patients. I’ll outline the most common mistakes practices make and explain how small shifts in communication and presentation will attract new patients and keep existing patients coming back."
