Smart phone use is growing faster…much faster than PC growth. Already large numbers (200 million on Facebook) of users access the Internet through a mobile device and the numbers will be increasing. What does that mean for dentistry?
At the most basic level it means sending e-communications that a patient can access from a smart phone. This includes text message reminders and e-mail. Be sure you are asking for and recording patient’s cell numbers and e-mail addresses in their electronic patient record.
For more advanced dental practices it means optimizing your website for viewing on a smart phone like an iPhone or Blackberry. Regular websites are usually slow to download and difficult to read and navigate on a smart phone.
