March 17, 2015 - Fred Joyal Webinar Helps Dentists Take the Pain Out of Social Media

LOS ANGELES, CA (March 17, 2015) – Futuredontics®, the nation’s leading dental marketing company, is hosting a free webinar for dentists and their staff called “Pain-Free Social Media.” Led by company founder Fred Joyal, this exclusive presentation offers dental professionals best practices for incorporating sites like Facebook, Google+ and Yelp into their marketing and reputation management strategies.

The hour-long webinar will be held on Tuesday, March 24th, beginning at 11am PST (2 pm EST), and is open to all dentists and office staff. After the presentation, host Fred Joyal will remain available online for a Q&A session.

Social media is playing an increasingly important role in dental practice marketing. In fact, a recent survey found that 24% of patients would use Facebook to find a dentist. “Pain Free Social Media” provides a step-by-step strategy for creating an engaging social media presence with strong patient appeal. Topics covered include determining which social media sites deserve the most attention, what’s the best content to post, why videos are the hottest trend in social media, how to defuse negative online reviews, and more.

“Social media is the new word of mouth,” said Fred Joyal. “Unfortunately, many dentists are unsure of how to take advantage of the wonderful marketing and reputation management opportunities found on Facebook, Google, Yelp and other sites. I want to take the mystery out of social media and show practices how they can easily use it to attract more patients and increase loyalty.”

A recognized authority on dental marketing, Fred Joyal is best known for founding Futuredontics, the parent company of 1-800-DENTIST®. He is the author of the bestselling book “Everything is Marketing: The Ultimate Strategy for Dental Practice Growth” and the host of a popular series of dental marketing webinars and online videos. Fred is a highly sought-after speaker and the owner of the weekly blog,, which explores a variety of industry topics like how online reviews, changes in appointing protocols and dormant patient reactivation impact practice growth.
