It could happen to you at any time!
Someone leaves a bad review about your practice online. Soon you realize that you are getting far fewer phone calls and are not getting nearly as many new patients!
All it takes is one bad online review, even if you already have several good ones. In a matter of days the phone could just stop ringing.
Unlike a personal bad reference that may reach one or two people, a bad online review is available 24/7 and could affect the decision of a huge number of potential patients!
Even if you have good reviews, the bad one is new and at the top of the list - the first one people will see. Studies have shown repeatedly that once people see the bad review, most will just go somewhere else. This could literally cost you thousands of dollars!

A Bad Online Reputation Makes Effective Marketing Impossible
The most recent studies show that 72% of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations! Those studies have also shown that people tend to select dentists who have a minimum of SIX positive reviews and, on average, they will read at least 10 reviews before making a decision.
This means that all the techniques for getting your business found on the internet will DO YOU NO GOOD if you have a bad online reputation. Even if you have NO reviews you are only ONE REVIEW AWAY from a bad reputation and you are already being passed by in favor of dentists that do have reviews!
Before you can create or continue any effective marketing, you must take steps to take care of the online reputation of your practice!
You have probably heard of reputation management companies that can help you get rid of or bury bad reviews, but they miss the point. Reacting to a bad review means the damage has already been done and they are just trying to repair it. These companies are just DEFENSIVELY reacting to something that has already happened.
Doesn't it make more sense to go on OFFENSE and make sure you don't get a bad review in the first place?

Don't just react - Take Control!
Our plan radically increases good reviews and can capture bad ones before they do any damage!
Our clients get an email within hours if a bad review has been left at any of the major review sites like Google, Yelp, CitySearch and so on. Google alerts cannot do this since the reviewer usually does not enter the practice name in the text of their review! These notifications come with recommendations for how best to respond to the review and what not to do.
The latest good reviews are automatically posted onto our client's websites. Wouldn't it be great if, when people looked at your website, all they saw were recent FIVE STAR reviews?
Our clients can direct their patients to a special website we have installed for entering reviews. Some even have computers in the office that are always on this website so patients can enter reviews before they leave the office!
ALL the employees in our client practices have been trained and tested on the importance of online reviews and how to encourage them. They even have special business cards to handout to patients, directing them to the review page!
These are just a very few examples of what we do and our program is really the next generation of marketing - its called REPUTATION MARKETING and most dentists don't even know it exists!
