Dental Website Design Services from DentalWebsiteDesign.com

Like any other professional, a dentist needs a website to promote their services. However, unlike most other professions, the dental industry is extremely competitive, and every dental practise works hard to gain an advantage, and attract new patients.

As the days of telephone directories are all but over, a dentist needs a well designed website to stand out from the crowd. In fact, a recent article by Forbes magazine stated that just over 80% of consumers look online first.

A great dental website design should be made up of the following factors:

  1. A welcoming home page, with easy to locate links to relevant information
  2. Patient education articles and videos
  3. A prominent phone number
  4. An appointment system
  5. A clean, simple to follow design
  6. Links to your social media accounts

At DentalWebsiteDesign.com, we understand the needs of dentists and their patients, and offer design expertise combined with superb web development skills.

Our dental website design process is fairly simple and boasts some fantastic features.

The Domain Name

domain namesFirst thing’s first. If you don’t already have your own domain name (for example, ours is dentalwebsitedesign.com), then we can help you to set one up.

We can even recommend which type of domain name to get – do you get a .COM, or a .DENTIST, or a .CO?

There are so many choices, and we’ll be happy to help you choose the best for your business.

Design Process

We have created a system to implement professionally pre-designed websites within a matter of days. web-designAlong with our representatives, you’ll be able to choose your own design from a range of pre-designed templates which have been created and optimized based on years of experience of designing websites for dentists.

Each design will be customized to reflect your business by adding your logos, office details and anything else you want on the website

Once the website has been created, you’ll be able to add unlimited pages, videos and images to your website. This is an important thing to do, as it gives the website a personal touch. Adding images of your team and offices are an excellent idea.

The Free Trial

Each website we design comes with a free 14 day trial. This isn’t something that many companies do. A lot of companies will ask for full payment before completing the website, which you’ll have no choice but to accept as they already have your money!

However, the advantage of a 14 day trial is to see whether you are happy with the website and our service. During this time it’s also an excellent idea to get feedback from current patients about the design – whether they like it or they don’t, and which parts they would possibly like changed. This way, if you do decide to stay with us beyond the 14 day free trial, you’ll be able to make those changes alongside our team.

Patient Education

educationWriting content for your own website can be very difficult and time consuming, which is why we’ve created a package of patient education articles to place on your website. These articles are ready to go, and each page provides valuable information to prospective patients.

The professionally-written content outlines many common procedures which are common to any dental practice. For example, there is an excellent article about the root canal procedure which can answer most of a patient’s questions without needing to contact you first.

If you do get questions from patients about various procedures, you can direct them to your own website where they will be able to read through all the procedure details at their leisure.

Mobile

With the smartphone boom, more people are spending time online on their smartphones than ever before. mobileThe global information company Nielsen recently revealed that 87% of smartphone and tablet users regularly use those devices to shop online.

It is becoming more and more apparent that important decisions – such as which dentist to go to – are being made using mobile devices.

Even more recently, Google started listing websites as “Mobile Friendly” for users searching for companies on their smartphones. This “mobile friendly” tag encourages users to click through onto the website.

Fortunately, our website designs are optimized for smartphones, and can be implemented with the click of a button. Once a website is optimized for mobile, any mobile visitor will see a simpler version of your website with prominent call, map and appointment booking buttons which are always visible, no matter where they are on your website.

Security

Security isn’t something that you should be concerned about. Our websites and servers are secure, which means that your data and most importantly your patient data is completely secured against hacking attempts.

The Appointment System

Whenever a patient logs onto your new website, they can visit a page to request an appointment. Whether the user is on a PC or a smartphone, they will be able to request an appointment using a very smart form which collects their name, phone number, email address and requested appointment time and date.

Once you have this data, you can schedule the appointment in your own time.

Time

Thanks to our pre-designed websites and customized content management systems, we can work to get your website online within five business days, with little input needed from you after our initial consultation.

Instead of having to wait for weeks, with many emails and phone calls back and forth regarding the design, we get all of the questions out of the way early, so that you are free to continue your dentistry without having to worry about your website design. We take care of that, and show you the finished product at the end. Of course, you’re free to change aspects of the site at any time.

Cost

A very common question we get is: How much does dental website design cost? Well, the answer is: it depends. It all depends on your budget, your goals and your location. We set up each website design and campaign around your company, and work with you to create something that we’re both proud of.

Free Dental Website Design

Should you ever consider using free dental website design services? In our opinion, no. Whilst you may save a considerable amount of money to start with, the website design and optimization will not be of the standard of many of your closest competitors.

This means that your free website will lose visitors to your competitors who have professionally designed websites, patient education systems and well optimized web campaigns.

The other downside of a free website system is that you will have to do all of the updates and maintenance yourself, which can be very time consuming, leaving less time for you to spend on other important aspects of your business.

In our experience, it’s better to get your dental website designed professionally to start with, leaving you to focus on the most important part of your business: dentistry.
