January 14, 2015 - Fred Joyal Video Explores When Bad Things Happen to Good Dental Websites

LOS ANGELES, CA (January 14, 2015) – Futuredontics®, the nation’s leading provider of dental marketing services, has released a new short video by company founder Fred Joyal entitled “When Bad Things Happen to Good Websites.” Dentists and dental practice management professionals can watch the 3 minute video for free at

“When Bad Things Happen to Good Websites” is the latest in a popular series of short online videos Futuredontics offers to help dentists improve the effectiveness of their dental practice marketing. In the new video, Fred shows how practice websites that were considered top-of-the-line just a few years ago have lost their effectiveness due to recent changes in technology and consumer expectations. This is a widespread problem estimated to affect over 60% of all dental practice websites.

The fast-paced video covers the biggest issues impacting older dental sites, including their incompatibility with popular mobile devices, harmful reliance on outdated Flash technology and lack of visibility on Google and other search engines. It also explores how dentists can significantly improve their site’s performance through video testimonials, Yelp reviews and cost-effective dynamic website designs.

“Today’s most successful dentists all have one thing in common: a great practice website,” explained CEO Michael Turner. “Futuredontics offers many exclusive resources — videos, whitepapers and marketing tools — that help dentists realize the full power of their practice’s #1 marketing tool. Topping this list is our WebDirector® service, which is by far the easiest, most affordable way for dentists to maintain a best of class website.”
