Will your dental practice’s website survive Mobilegeddon?
Earlier this year, Google released a new algorithm that gives mobile-friendly websites, or websites that run on mobile devices, better visibility in mobile search results. What does this mean for your practice? Your website could drop drastically in search rankings. Also, traffic to your website could decrease if Google deems your practice’s website as mobile-unfriendly. Not mobile-friendly? It’s time to go mobile ASAP for the success of you and your practice.

Six ways to use patient-focused apps in your practice
According to a recent study, almost two-thirds of Americans own a smartphone and 62% of people use their smartphone as an access point to get information about a health condition. These statistics suggest that apps could be a tool practitioners could use to educate and interact with patients! Get connected with younger your patients and see how your practice can transform!
