Consumer Guide to Dentistry Launches IP-Based Dentist Display to Promote Local Dentistry

January 18, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
In response to rising consumer demand for geographically-relevant search results, Consumer Guide to Dentistry has launched an IP-based feature to more easily connect its growing readership with its network of top local dentists.

With recent changes in the Google search algorithm, consumers have come to expect an array of locally pertinent search results on the first page of Google relevant to their local area. The sophisticated IP feature provides visitors to Consumer Guide to Dentistry with the same functionality. The newly developed tool is able to pinpoint visitor location based on unique IP address, and access a database of dentists practicing in the area.

This feature allows consumers to review up-to-date articles about topics such as veneers, dental implants and in-office teeth whitening while simultaneously viewing local dentists offering these services. Since Consumer Guide to Dentistry has top-three rankings on Google for virtually every important cosmetic dentistry and dental health-related topic, the portal gives patients near-instant access to comprehensive educational information and local dentists.
"The IP-based dentist program is a game-changer for Consumer Guide to Dentistry," says Ceatus CEO Dr. David Evans. "It will revolutionize the way consumers obtain dental health information by immediately connecting them to a network of local dentists."

Consumer Guide to Dentistry experienced another record traffic year in 2010, reaching more than 1.8 million targeted visitors as compared to the 1.3 million reached in 2009; a year over year growth of 38 percent. Early projections for 2011 are equally promising.

Online since 2007, Consumer Guide to Dentistry provides more than 150 pages of easy-to-understand, dentist-reviewed education about all aspects of dentistry and oral health, including general dentistry topics like wisdom teeth and root canal therapy, cosmetic dentistry topics like veneers and Invisalign cost, and everything in between. The site is produced by Ceatus Media Group, an online publisher of consumer health information portals, and is accredited by the Health on the Net Foundation.
