Congratulations to Jorgensen Orthodontics, our October 2014 Practice of the Month!

The team at Jorgensen Orthodontics in Rio Rancho, NM are passionate about what they do each day. They believe in exceeding patients’ expectations at every turn. They even exceed our social media marketing expectations! Here are several reasons why…

Jorgensen Orthodontics Puts ALL Of Their Resources To Work

From daily Facebook ideas to ongoing campaigns, the materials My Social Practice provides are specifically designed to make OUR CLIENTS look great and to get fans involved. But they can’t work if the practice doesn’t use them! The Jorgensen Orthodontics team utilizes every tool to boost their social media presence. Including…

“Even Better” Kickstarts

There are good options for daily Facebook postings, better options, and “best” options. Jorgensen Ortho goes typically goes for the best. Cheryl, who heads up their social media efforts, said, “We were surprised that ideas and graphics celebrating things beyond orthodontics have been so well-received. The one that I remember being most successful had to do with Girl Scout Cookie time. A randomly selected winner got a case of their favorite Girl Scout cookies. That post had a 1,200 reach and 306 Facebook clicks.

Way to go Catherine Tewalt who was the winner in our "Vote For Your Favorite Girl Scout Cookie" contest! We also want to…

In-Office Promotional Materials

Cheryl told us, “We purchased ‘Social Media Handout Cards’ from the My Social Practice Swag Store. We have them on the front office desk and put them in our new patient packets. We also love having signs around the office encouraging patients to ‘Like’ our Facebook page.


Campaigns are a great way to make social media exciting for your fans. Cheryl told us, “Patients definitely have been enjoying the various contests we have been running–mostly on Facebook, but on other places as well.”

They Communicate Clear Messages Using Social Media For Orthodontists

“We like you and want to connect!”

Cheryl told us, “One of the first things we did was use the Social Media Sign for the game ‘Two Truths and a Lie.’ This was a great way to help our ‘fans’ get to know some things about the Jorgensen Orthodontic staff. I still have no clue why, but Dr. Jorgensen’s answer to his ‘Two Truths and a Lie’ got 256 post clicks and had a reach of 5,200!

To help our followers get to know everyone at Jorgensen Orthodontics, we decided to play a game called “Two Truths and a…

“We’re experienced professionals with authority you can trust.”

Cheryl said, “Our parents and patients often talk to Dr. Jorgensen and our staff members about the things they learn from us via social media.

“We love helping patients reach their goals for beautiful, healthy smiles.”

I just love her smile! Look how the top teeth match her bottom lip after treatment. She has a perfect "smile arc"

A Few More Q&As With Cheryl

What advice would you give to new practices starting out with social media marketing?

Be consistent! And make sure the content you post is pertinent and interesting. We personalize our Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest pages by mixing what we get from My Social Practice, with other things we do in our office.

What’s the most difficult part of social media for orthodontists?

Even with My Social Practice’s help, social media marketing can take a lot of time if you do it right. It can also be a challenge getting staff members to fully utilize all of the ideas My Social Practice gives us. I’m still working on that.

What do you think is the most surprising thing about social media for orthodontists?

One of the biggest surprises is that practices can get more bang for their ‘marketing buck’ online as opposed to using old fashioned ways of marketing. To be successful, you must post interesting and fun content at regular intervals.


Thanks, Cheryl! And congratulations to everyone at Jorgensen Orthodontics. You guys rock. Keep up the great work!
