July 28, 2015 - Futuredontics’ New Whitepaper Identifies 10 Things Patients Hate Most About Dentists’ Websites

LOS ANGELES, CA (July 28, 2015) — Futuredontics®, the nation’s leading provider of dental marketing services, has released a new whitepaper called “10 Things Patients Hate About Your Website.” This free report is designed to help dentists identify key problem areas on their practice’s website that hurt patient acquisition and retention.

Futuredontics’ new whitepaper examines ten website user-experience issues that discourage patients from patronizing a practice. These common website “turnoffs” have a major impact on production because they significantly hamper the dentist’s ability to connect with new and existing patients through the practice’s most important marketing tool.

The typical dental patient’s visit to a practice website is short and disappointing because the site failed to meet expectations. Though there are many potential reasons for this, the primary ones are tied to the age and upkeep of the site. Today sites must continuously evolve along with changes to the Web and the expectations of increasingly tech-savvy patients. Practices that fail to do this risk falling behind and losing potential new patients before they ever reach the office. 

“Thirty percent of patients say their choice of dentist is greatly influenced by the quality of the practice’s website,” explained Futuredontics founder Fred Joyal.  “For new patients, it’s likely the first impression they get of a practice - and might be the only impression they get. Our whitepaper will help dentists create a great web experience and help convince visitors that this is the right practice for them.”
