February 4, 2015 - “Yelp 101” Helps Dentists Take Charge of Their Online Reputation

LOS ANGELES, CA (February 4, 2015) – Futuredontics®, the nation’s leading provider of dental marketing services and software, has released a new whitepaper, “Yelp 101: A Guide to Dentistry’s Most Influential Online Review Site.” This free report is designed as an introduction for dental professionals who are interested in learning best practices for using the popular site to manage their practice’s online reputation and acquire new patients.

The purpose of the new whitepaper is to clear up the confusion and frustration many dentists experience when trying to understand how Yelp works, especially how it determines which reviews to highlight. This comprehensive report covers a variety of key topics, including creating a business profile that functions as no-cost advertising, responding to negative comments, best ways to generate positive patient reviews and using the site for reputation monitoring.

“It’s difficult to overstate the importance of Yelp to dentists,” said Futuredontics CEO Michael Turner. “Virtually every practice in the nation is listed on the site and what patients say there has a profound, long-lasting effect on their business. Dentists must learn how to deal with Yelp in order to protect their reputation and grow their practice. This whitepaper shows dentists how to do it.” 

“Yelp 101 is the latest in our series of exclusive dental marketing reports,” Turner continued. “We provide these free resources to complement Futuredontics’ suite of marketing products, which include cost-effective solutions for reviews, websites, social media and patient lead generation.”
