What if you could educate people about dental hygiene even when your patient is not present in your clinic physically?

What if you could help a kid with teething issues with your quick tips to relieve teething pain via your dental blog?


Ahhh! Most importantly imagine how time-saving would that be for you if your pediatric patients, the little angels, come prepared for the treatment!

Sounds greaaattt right?


Those pictures in your blog are always better than a thousand words that you speak while explaining to your patient the steps involved in dental treatment.


Those ceramic braces, invisalign, and not that far yet!

Even with conventional steps involved in the root canal treatment, having a blog with graphics or pictures that are self-explanatory can save you a lotttttt of time.


Pinky promise!

2) How About the Post-operative Instructions Being Given in Writing?


The most honest fact is simply that people forget! Not every patient whom you encounter would be able to follow all your instructions meticulously. Ever found yourself in situations where you asked your patient not to spit immediately after tooth removal and they do the same thing exactly, not following your instructions?


See, the point is just that people are just human! They tend to forget the list of instructions.

Writing them on a piece of paper and giving it to your patient?

Or otherwise, getting them printed to give to the patient after the procedure.


Sounds like a fair idea but what if you could save on the paper and print and still enable the patient to have unlimited access to your instructions?


What if every click on your website has the potential to generate some income?

This is not at all rocket science. These are the most useful practical examples to run a blog.


Start writing on simple topics like post-operative instructions after tooth removal.

Cover trending topics like Invisalign and implants in super reader-friendly language.


By the way, hold on, don’t just jump at it.

Read this before you start, do not make these 10 mistakes while writing content for your dental website. Save yourself some regret!


3) Increases the ‘Trust’ Factor With Your Patients.


Your patients see you as an ‘expert’ when you are consistent in what you do. People tend to lovvvvee anything valuable when served free of cost. Don’t we?


Your patients trust you more when you solve their problems via blogging free of cost. That in turn increases the likelihood of continuing dental treatment and building a loyal fan base. Guess what? Patients might always want to come back only to you!


Your patients might also secretly appreciate your dedication and sincerity in providing them with content that is packed with value. They might as well share that blog post with their friends. A little bit of appreciation might surely come your way!


What’s better than this?

It’s a win-win for both!
