October 9, 2013 - Fred Joyal Tells Dentists: There’s a Disconnect in Your Practice

LOS ANGELES, CA (October 9, 2013) – 1-800-DENTIST®, the nation’s premier dental marketing company, is hosting a new free Webinar called “Bridging the Gap – Closing the Marketing Gap between Office Managers and Dentists,” led by founder Fred Joyal. The new Webinar, based on a nationwide survey of over 1,700 dental professionals, reveals the biggest marketing disconnects in most dental practices. Fred Joyal explains why these marketing gaps arise and shares easy tips for bringing everyone in the practice together.  

The hour-long online course will be held on Tuesday, October 15th at 11am PST (2pm EST), and is open to all dentists and office staff. After the presentation, host Fred Joyal will also remain available online to answer attendee questions.

“When I speak with office managers and dentists about the practice’s online presence, the dentist often reports one level of participation while the office manager says something completely different,” said Fred Joyal. “This Webinar highlights the most commonly disagreed upon marketing activities and provides guidelines for getting everyone in the practice on the same page.”

Fred Joyal is best known for founding 1-800-DENTIST, which operates the largest dental website in North America and provides a suite of marketing technology products for dentists. He is also the author of the bestselling book “Everything is Marketing: The Ultimate Strategy for Dental Practice Growth,” and was recently recognized as one of the “Top 10 Dental Pros in Social Media” by Patterson Dental’s industry blog. 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 new marketing technology, social media, websites and online presence.

“All dentists and office managers could benefit from this Webinar,” added Joyal. “I’ll review common marketing misconceptions and provide tips for bringing everyone in the practice together for the best possible results.”
