Smile….and help us to celebrate 10 years in business!

Birthday Cake

Smile Marketing, the renowned agency dedicated to the dental sector, is celebrating 10 years in business following its launch in 2009.

Having spotted the obvious need in the sector for a specialist practice growth and marketing agency, the Smile team, led by MD Steve Davey, embarked on a mission to fill the gap in the market for a specialised business development and marketing service.

Based in Teignmouth near Exeter in Devon, the agency has now supported over 130 practices – incl. Orthodontists, Periodontists, Endodontists, Implantologists, Referral Centres, Boutique Dental Spas and even Dental & MediSpas, as well as other businesses in the industry, since its launch. With clients spread across the country, from Manchester, Birmingham, the Home Counties and London to Bristol, South Coast, South Wales and the South West, the company is now entering an exciting new phase of expansion. Steve commented:

“In a dynamically changing sector, with numerous mergers, acquisitions and the growth of many dental groups as well as the large corporates buying and selling practices, the demand for our services from dentists around the UK has been amazing. This has enabled us, as we reach 10 years in business, to start adding to the core marketing team in Devon as well as increase our support network in other parts of the UK.”

“As we have developed the agency, we have forged some very strong relationships with other businesses that also work with dentists. These include Privilege Plan, in our view the most client focused and best value membership plan providers in the market and our partners in the 4Dentists Group, including Money 4Dentists, Practices 4Dentists and Accountants 4Dentists. Together with our partners, we look forward to supporting even more dental businesses and emerging groups in the years to come.”

Excellent Marketing Support Now – Pay Later

We are getting into the festive period frenzy of special offers and deals – from holidays to furniture to any number of potential gifts. But it’s refreshing to know that for business planning, marketing advice, branding, website and patient communications, your costs can be spread over several months.

Following the expense of practice refurbishments and equipment upgrades for CQC and HTM 01-05, or the launch of a new practice, cash may be tight but the need for finding new patients, promoting treatments, attracting high value cases and increasing referrals never goes away.

It’s important that dental practices choose a flexible agency to support them – not just in terms of high quality advice that eliminates costly mistakes or media planning and buying that saves them money.

Smile Marketing works with you to plan and budget in a way that suits your cash flow, whilst allowing you to benefit from marketing right away. There are several ways we do this.

  1. From our proposal, you can simply select paying in 12 equal monthly instalments on the agreed contract value. There is no minimum contract value.
  2. For the larger marketing investments, maybe for a new practice launch, re-brand or change in practice strategy, we can recommend a finance company that allows you to spread payments as part of an unsecured ‘working capital’ loan.

And remember, for retainer clients a proportion of our fees are based on practice results, whether new consultations, cases, income or bottom-line.

Marketing Your Practice – The Personal Touch

No two practices are the same! They are a unique combination of your brand, range of treatments, premises, locations, what your patients are like and the personalities of your staff.

Your practice is one of a kind.

So why should your marketing be any different? We’ll talk through what you’d like to achieve and how to get there, creating a unique proposal especially for you.

As a full service agency we don’t just offer marketing, we can help your business grow with new revenue streams. Our recent initiative (initially for practices in Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset) is to offer our clients* up to £3,000 worth of clinical training at multi-award-winning Devon Dental Centre of Excellence, one of the leading specialist referral centres in the South West.

If you’re thinking of offering dental implants, this is your opportunity to team up with a renowned Implantologist who has placed well over 1,000 implants. Restorative training consists of 6 monthly sessions and includes “live observation” of real cases using state-of-the-art technology at Devon Dental in Ashburton, just off the A38 between Exeter and Plymouth.

For more information on marketing and FREE* restorative training call us on 01626 897 713.
