August 12, 2014 - Fred Joyal Webinar Offers Dentists Yelp Survival Tips

LOS ANGELES, CA (August 12, 2014) – Futuredontics®, the nation’s leading provider of dental marketing services, is offering a live encore presentation of founder Fred Joyal’s popular webinar, “Yelp! The Dentist Survival Guide.” This special return engagement will teach dental professionals how they can use patient review sites to grow their practice and manage their online reputation.

The free hour-long webinar will be held on Wednesday, August 20th, beginning at 11am PST / 2pm EST, and is open to all dentists and office staff. After the presentation, Fred will remain online to host a question and answer session.

Brought back by popular demand, the webinar will focus on best practices for patient acquisition and reputation management when dealing with online reviews sites. Fred will share proven strategies for creating the perfect office profile, generating 5-star reviews and dealing with negative patient feedback. The presentation is especially timely since over 132 million consumers now use Yelp every month —making it the Internet’s go to site for online patient reviews.

 “Yelp is one of the most controversial topics in dentistry,” Fred Joyal explained. “Many dentists are uncomfortable with the amount of influence the site has on their practice’s online reputation. My webinar will show dentists how they can work Yelp to their advantage so that their practice gets more great reviews and isn’t hurt by a few negative comments.”
