Google sends over 6 billion people to different websites every day. If you do well and own a winning dental practice website, you could get the opportunity to be in front of many patients in your community today.

It’s surprising to see many poorly performing dental practice websites out there.

A winning dental practice website combines two vital elements; form (how it looks) & function (how it works). You could have a website that looks great but functions poorly, and at the same time, owning a practice website that functions well while performing poorly, both of which we must avoid. These are relevant for us in the dental industry due to how we strive to maintain a delicate balance in the form and function of what we do clinically.
