DentistDirectory.com and DentalAppointments.com combine to bring dentists new patient marketing tools and convenient online scheduling for dental patients
August 21, 2012 Health News(PRLEAP.COM) Today Dentisoft Technologies is pleased to announce the merger of DentistDirectory.com and DentalAppointments.com. The new DentistDirectory.com will combine its industry-leading search capabilities with the unique online scheduling features of DentalAppointments.com.
"We are so excited to be able to offer online scheduling and advanced messaging services to the thousands of dental patients who regularly use our site to find a dentist", says Eric Wasserman, Dentisoft's Chief Operating Officer.
The new platform will be rolled out to thousands of dentists already registered with the directory. As one of the web's earliest dentist search sites, DentistDirectory.com has built a large and active user-base. Utilizing the enhanced platform, patients can now easily request available appointments, and have the dental office confirm and dialog online through an easy-to-use patient portal. It's simple and free for the patient. The patient portal is also completely integrated with Dentisoft Office Cloud, one of the web's leading online practice management systems/EMR for dentists, including its free Dentisoft Office Cloud Starter.
"This merger brings many more prospective patients to users of Dentisoft Office, who use the platform for everything from patient record keeping, charting, and billing, to our secure messaging platform (used for appointment reminders, confirmations, welcome messages, and marketing) saving money for dentists versus competing products" explains Wasserman. "It's like getting a whole lead generation and communications platform embedded in the dental EMR, for free".
Recently Dentisoft also released a compelling integration with Facebook, including a Facebook "app" capable of online scheduling and secure messaging from any patient's Facebook page. This capability further enables the dentist to develop a "social" position with their patients. "It's a two-way interactive portal to help patients stay on top of their dental needs, and for dentists it's a great way to build their brand." Dentisoft believes that the modern practice management system/EMR has to be more than just for record-keeping; it has to enable its users to stay connected to their customers-to be "social".
