July 25, 2012 - ReputationMonitor® Helps Dentists Take Charge of Their Online Presence

LOS ANGELES, CA (July 25, 2012) – 1-800-DENTIST®, the dental industry’s premier dental marketing company, today launched ReputationMonitor – a powerful tool that helps dentists increase online visibility, track patient reviews and maximize social media, across hundreds of major websites, all from a single screen.

The innovation is a huge milestone in dentistry, giving dentists the unprecedented ability to monitor and manage their online reputation from a personalized dashboard. ReputationMonitor scours the Web for all mentions of the dental practice, including directory listings, Facebook posts, Tweets, Yelp reviews and more. At a glance, dentists can view their entire digital presence – and easily update missing or outdated information to improve their ranking with Google and other search engines.

Dental offices also get real-time alerts when a new patient review is posted, as well as a full list of existing ratings and reviews from across the Web. In addition, ReputationMonitor integrates with social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare, tracking activity from “check-ins” to “likes” to new photos or videos. The software even helps monitor dentists’ local competitors, displaying their online stats for easy side-by-side comparison. 

“With ReputationMonitor, there’s finally an easy way for dentists to keep up with an online marketplace that’s changing daily,” said Fred Joyal, founder of 1-800-DENTIST. “What would have once taken hours – sifting through reviews sites and directories – now takes only minutes. And more importantly, dentists can make real, impactful changes that help more new patients find them online.”

Dentists can preview ReputationMonitor by calling 1-855-224-1719 for a free online demonstration. The product requires no external software, offers a live support line and is available with no setup fee.

“After 26 years as the nation’s leading resource for dentists, 1-800-DENTIST is uniquely qualified to help dentists adjust to new marketing channels and technology” added Joyal.  ReputationMonitor is a natural addition to our suite of products, designed to help dentists acquire, retain and manage their patients.”
