The Online Dentist

So, I was sifting through the internet the other day, doing my usual rounds, when I happen to stumble upon this article called “Montebello Cosmetic Dentist Brings Social Media Sites – Facebook and Twitter – to Practice.” It describes how dentists are now using the internet to further their communication skills with their patients through social networks like Facebook and Twitter.

I find this so interesting because it shows how truly revolutionary the internet has become. These dentists are using social networks to not just appeal to people looking for information on specific services, but they also provide a way for patients to directly interact with the office, something that was not able to happen before social networks. Patients are able to learn about techniques and procedures, as well as see pictures of past procedures, almost as if the patient were in a virtual waiting room. This kind of experience makes it so that the patient gains a level of comfort with certain procedures that they may be looking at before they even make a decision to follow through with said procedure. I love this and believe it is so crucial because patients must 100% be comfortable when they are about to change something in their body because, for the most part, it is permanent, and the pictures and info provided online that sense of comfort.

I very much so enjoyed this article because it was really intriguing. Although a little on the short side, it still gave an appropriate amount of information in order to create an intriguing article on the migration of dentists from office to the online universe.
