The ADA launched April 3 an online search tool aimed to help prospective patients connect with local ADA members. The Association is encouraging ADA member dentists to fill out their Find-a-Dentist online profile, which takes about five minutes, on average, to complete. ADA member dentists with completed profiles, especially those with photos, are prioritized in the online tool’s search results.
I am happy to see the ADA offering this service. The challenge will be to get people searching for a dentist to use the ADA service rather than simple stick with Google. Nevertheless if you are an ADA member be sure and fill out your profile with a photo. Searchers are much more likely to choose a dentist with a photo than not.
