Congratulations to our December Social Dental Practice of the Month—Accent Smile Center!
Take one look at the reviews for Accent Smile Center and you can tell that this is a team that goes the extra mile for their patients! We’re honored to work with Dr. Ford Gatgens and his exceptional team to build their practice’s social media presence. Using our social media ideas and MSP Reviews™ service, they’ve strengthened relationships with fans and made it easy for patients to share the great experiences they have at their practice!
We Asked Dr. Gatgens About How Social Media Helps His Practice
(Responses edited for length)
What’s one thing you didn’t expect about social media marketing?
“Patients really LOVE to interact and be social about their experiences at [our] office, and by doing that they feel much more comfortable with coming to visit us.”
Which social media tools have you seen the most success with?
“Campaigns seem to get our patients the most involved, [especially the breast cancer awareness] one we participated in last month. Our patients really enjoyed the interaction and of course we were able to help a wonderful cause.”
What do you feel is the No. 1 benefit of social media marketing for your patients?
“Just the ability to connect on a personal level and let them know we are real people that have fun and enjoy helping people!”
How about the biggest benefit to you your practice?
“Well, I would have to say that gaining new patients from our social media efforts is the biggest ROI benefit to date!”

What advice would you give to a practice just starting with social media marketing?
“Patients don’t mind posting on Facebook or [taking photos with Social Signs]. It’s okay to tell them you are building your social media pages. Most of our patients are thrilled to help.”
For Dr. Gatgens, finding a time to discuss social media with his team is easiest when it’s scheduled, like during the morning huddle. Consistent posting is also key, which My Social Practice makes easier by providing media and ideas every day to help dental teams create engaging content for their fans!
We’re proud to help so many skilled and dedicated practices like Accent Smile Center connect with their patients through social media. We love it when dentists realize that building relationships doesn’t have to stop when a patient walks out the door!
