Impact on our lives
It’s undeniable that social media has changed the way we live our lives. The way it has impacted on our personal interactions to the way we consume our news – its influence on society has and will continue to be huge.
But its impact is not restricted to our private lives.
The way we shop, the purchase decisions we make, our views on brands and the way we communicate with them have all changed phenomenally too.
Social media and your practice
You already know this right? You know your practice should be active on social media – you’ve probably already got a presence on all the major social channels.
But ask yourself this – is your social media presence helping to grow your business? When did you last post? Is your content the best it could be and more importantly is it compelling and attracting new patients?
Let’s cut to the chase – if it wasn’t your practice would you bother to like or follow it?
Smile Social – here to help
It’s our view that a few dental practices really get social media and do it really well. Most practices simply don’t have the time (or know-how) to maximise the positive impact it could have on their business.
That’s where Smile Social comes in. We not only have the marketing and technical skills to make social media work for you - we have the clinical and sector knowledge too.
Creating inspirational, educational and entertaining content that will not only raise the profile of your practice in an engaging way but ultimately lead to more enquiries and happier patients.
We offer a complete range of social media management packages specially designed for busy dental practices.
So, whatever the size or shape of your practice, Smile Social has the package that's right for you.

Facebook Advertising Package
Facebook advertising is a tried and tested way for dental practices to build awareness and, more importantly, to increase patient list registrations and drive high-value treatment sales.
With our help, you'll be able to target exactly who sees your ads so that only the people you want to see them do. What's more, you only pay for people who are genuinely interested in your offer and who click on your ad.
At Smile Social, we not only have the dental sector expertise but also the digital marketing expertise to plan, build, manage and optimise your campaigns to ensure they deliver great results.
We simply charge a flat monthly fee for managing your campaigns. In addition, you pay Facebook directly for the clicks through from your ads. And don't worry, we're here to help you set the appropriate budget for your campaigns so you know exactly what you are spending each month.
