Do you have a web site?

According to research from Sesame Communications 46% of US general dentists do not have a web site.

I think that is generous. In my opinion if your web site was put up for you free back in 2003 that does not count.  If you are ashamed to show people your site that does not count. If you think you have a web site but can’t remember the URL that does not count. If you do not own the domain name that does not count. If your web site has not been updated in the last two years that does not count.

Sesame is offering a free web site analysis here.
