How old is your website? If it’s older than three years, you and your team should do a top-to-bottom review. Look for outdated content, missing services, old photos, lack of photos or images, broken links, etc. This visual inspection will give you a good start on improving the site.

Work with a professional website firm. That may sound like a no-brainer, but I’ve known more than a few dentists who have used a templated site with predictably ineffective results.

Don’t forget SEO. Search engine optimization (SEO) makes it easy for patients and prospects to find your website. There’s no sense designing a new website if it turns up on page 22 when people search for it. You need your website to consistently appear in the top search rankings. Again, work with a professional firm that specializes in this area.
