Monitoring Your Social Presence

Dr. Ginger Bratzel talks about how important it is to be aware of your social presence and be able to monitor your online reputation.

Your online presence is important for your dental practice, but be sure that you are active in monitoring your online reputation. 

It’s important that you are able to monitor any and all aspects of your social media and online reputation. Many times practices are in many places at once, but they are not monitoring all of these pages. 

Being aware of your online reputation is important because this is what potential patients see when they are looking up information for your office. 
The more places you are online, the more people have an opportunity to see you, but there is also more opportunity for negative comments. If there are negative comments being posted about your practice online and it is not being monitored because you don’t know about it, then it goes unchecked. Prospective patients find that online and that deters them from seeking care from your office.
Make sure you know where you are online so that you can be in control of what is being said about your practice. It allows you to address negative comments and maintain your reputation. Sometimes, it’s just about how people see you handle a complaint – in a classy manner.
