November 5, 2012 - Fred Joyal Makes Social Media Pain-Free for Dentists

LOS ANGELES, CA (November 5, 2012) – 1-800-DENTIST®, the nation’s premier dental marketing company, is hosting a free social media Webinar, led by founder Fred Joyal. “Pain-Free Social Media” will lay out easy steps to incorporate Facebook, Twitter, Google and patient reviews into the dental practice with real results. 

The hour-long online course will be held on Thursday, November 15, beginning at 11am PST, and is open to all dentists and office staff. After the presentation, host Fred Joyal will also remain available online to answer attendee questions.

“Social media doesn’t have to be a source of anxiety for dental professionals,” said Fred Joyal. “I want to take the mystery out of these tools and show practices how they can attract more patients and increase loyalty without wasting hours of staff time.”

Fred Joyal, best known for founding 1-800-DENTIST in 1986, was recently named one of the “Top 10 Dental Pros in Social Media” by Patterson Dental’s industry blog. He is also the author of the bestselling book “Everything is Marketing: The Ultimate Strategy for Dental Practice Growth,” now in its 4th edition, with a new chapter devoted to online marketing for dentists. In addition, Joyal is an international lecturer, a regular contributor to industry publications, and owner of his own dental marketing blog,, which routinely delves into topics of social media and online reputation.

“We’re living in a Facebook world and dentists can’t afford to ignore social media.” Joyal added. “This Webinar makes it easy to update your practice marketing so you can interact with patients in the online spaces they use most.”
