“Mobile Technology: Evolution and Impact on Today’s Dental Practice”

Let’s face it. Your patients aren’t reading your magazines or watching your waiting room TV. Instead they are buried in their smartphones.

Many dentists view the phone as an annoyance. Instead of embracing smartphones, many dentists have failed to find ways to leverage these devices to their practice advantage.

The smartphone can become a very useful tool that dentists can leverage to help with patient referrals, obtaining more positive online reviews, and help to improve the image of their practice to potential patients surfing the internet researching dentists.

Quick points about the Impact of Mobile:

  • The new billboard of today’s world is the 3” x 5” screen on your patient’s mobile phone
  • Smartphones vs. Desktops: 57% of all internet search is now done from the mobile phones
  • Facebook stock recently soared 9% due to a surge in ad revenue (8.2% was from mobile)
  • Google changed their “7-Pack” local search results to “3-Pack” to fit mobile screens

Course Synopsis:

This course reviews the growth of mobile technology, statistics of use, and human behavior observations. The course will outline how this game-changing technology is impacting dental practices via the engagement and interaction with patients.

Course Objectives:

Help participants to gain a better appreciation of the impact of mobile to our everyday lives and to better understand how mobile can help improve the patient experience from both a business and clinical perspective.
