The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) has released a digital member platform built to leverage digital media and benefit from search engine optimization and patient reviews.
The platform integrates aspects of an AACD member-dentists' online reputation and facilitates the organic page ranking of member profile pages, according to the academy. The platform includes a consumer-friendly cosmetic dentist locator/directory, Google maps, AACD-certified patient reviews, practice information, and social media links and feeds. Additionally, the platform can exhibit comprehensive photos and videos of treatments.
Members choosing to fully leverage the new platform can upgrade to the Review Solution Pro, which allows them to collect patient reviews at the point of service. These reviews can then be posted to the AACD member profile page and other sites such as Google+, Yelp, Healthgrades, Vitals, and RateMDs.com.
