January 31, 2012 - Patient Activator® Helps Dentists Share Positive Reviews on Facebook

LOS ANGELES, CA - January 31, 2012 – Patient Activator®, 1-800-DENTIST’s award-winning patient communications service, is revolutionizing the way dentists use patient reviews to develop positive reputations on Facebook.

Dentists using Patient Activator’s new Facebook App can have verified patient reviews from their practice’s microsite automatically posted to their Facebook page. This functionality gives dentists the ability to instantly share their best reviews with millions of Facebook users. Increased visibility on Facebook and subsequent sharing on Twitter, Google+ and other major social media channels enables dentists to take full advantage of dentistry’s fastest growing patient acquisition tool – online consumer reviews.

Developed specifically for dentists, this powerful reputation management marketing tool is available to all Patient Activator® clients at no extra charge as part of the company’s core services. Unlimited free technical support, including live download assistance for the Facebook App, is available. Patient Activator® clients who downloaded earlier versions of Facebook App have been automatically upgraded to the latest release.        

“Patient Activator’s Facebook App makes it easy for dentists to share their best reviews on the nation’s most visited social media site,” said 1-800-DENTIST® founder Fred Joyal. “Our app is perfect for busy dental offices because it’s totally automatic. You install it once and the app takes over from there, ensuring that reputation-enhancing reviews always appear on your practice’s Facebook page.”

 “Patient Activator® is leading the way in helping dentists use patient reviews to build their online reputation,” Joyal added. “We provide our members with review mini-websites, Google Review Builder, and now our innovative new Facebook App. Our goal is to make sure Patient Activator members are properly represented on every social media channel where prospective new patients can be found.”
