January 13, 2012 - Patient Activator® Launches Google Review Builder for Dentists

LOS ANGELES, CA –  January 13, 2012 – Patient Activator®, 1-800-DENTIST’s award-winning patient communications service, today announced the launch of Google Review Builder, a new campaign tool for Patient Activator users that allows dentists to take charge of their online reputation. Developed specifically for use by dental practices, this groundbreaking social media marketing tool helps dentists ensure that positive reviews appear on Google Places, the influential review site millions of prospective patients visit every day when searching for a new dentist.

Patient Activator’s Google Review Builder helps dentists maintain a positive online reputation by making it easier for patients to post reviews directly on their practices’ Google Places page. Using Google Review Builder, dentists are able to send their patient base emails requesting a review. Patients can post their comments just by clicking a link in the email. The greatly simplified posting process not only encourages more patients to write reviews, it ensures that positive reviews appear on a dentist’s Google Places page.

An impressive addition to Patient Activator’s extensive suite of reputation management and social media engagement tools, Google Review Builder enables dentists to achieve more positive Web visibility. This tool is available to Patient Activator® clients at no extra charge as part of the company’s core service. Free setup and live technical support are also provided.

 “Positive reviews on Google Places are like money in the bank. They can bring in hundreds of new patients a year,” said 1-800-DENTIST® founder Fred Joyal. “Our review builder campaign tool allows our dentists to greatly increase the odds that there are positive reviews on their Google Places pages.”

 “Patient Activator® is leading the way when it comes to helping dentists generate new production by leveraging their online reputation,” Joyal added. “Our ability to post reviews directly on Google Places is just another example of our commitment to helping dentist build profitable dental practices.”
