Social Networking and Reputation Management – 1 CE credit
Presented by: Glenn Lombardi
With the explosive growth of social media and the ability to communicate with a mass audience of existing and potential patients, a dental practice can’t afford to not participate in leading social networking sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. We will take an in-depth look at how to effectively establish and manage a presence on leading social media platforms including blogs. Additionally, you will learn how to position your practice on the Google and Yahoo! maps in order to increase your local reach when patients search for dental services in your town.
