LOS ANGELES, CA (February 28, 2012) – Patient Activator®, 1-800-DENTIST’s award-winning patient communications service, today introduced a new feature that lets dentists instantly create and post high-impact consumer dental marketing offers, coupons and promotions directly on their practice’s Facebook page.

Dentists using Patient Activator® can now advertise special offers on their Facebook business page and MicroSite any time they like. Perfect for busy practitioners, this user-friendly feature provides dentists with a library of professionally designed templates that can be easily customized to promote services like teeth whitening, free exams and Invisalign specials to generate more production and attract more new patients.

Special offers for patients can be launched on a practice’s Patient Activator MicroSite and Facebook page in just minutes. Simple, step-by-step instructions walk users through the entire process, from customizing templates and creating original designs to posting finished offers on Facebook. Dentists are able to monitor the success of their marketing promotions via automatic email alerts and through their Patient Activator dashboard.

Developed specifically for the dental profession, Patient Activator’s new online marketing tool is available to clients at no extra charge as part of the company’s core services. Live technical support is offered to help dentists succeed every step of the way, from launching their first Facebook campaign to using their own images to create custom promotional templates.

In two minutes flat, they can design and launch special Facebook offers that are custom-tailored to their practice.”   

“Patient Activator’s Facebook promotion feature, along with other recent releases like our Facebook Review App and Google Review Builder tool, help dentists tap into the incredibly rich pool of new patients found on the Internet,” Joyal added. “Innovations like these are the reason we’re leading the way in online dental marketing and reputation management.”
