« Have You Updated Your Find-A-Dentist Profile on ADA.org? »

Feature figures prominently on new MouthHealthy websiteNow that ADA’s new consumer website MouthHealthy.org  is live, make sure patients have access to the most up-to-date information about you and your practice.

The goal of MouthHealthy.org is to provide patients with timely and credible oral health information on prevention, care and treatment in a highly engaging user experience. Because consumer research has indicated that patients value a tool that can help them find dentists, the Find-a-Dentist feature will be on on every page of MouthHealthy.org. Member dentists are being reminded to update their profiles if they haven't done so already. 

As a benefit of membership in the American Dental Association, Find-a-Dentist is a great, no-cost way for members to promote their practices to the public. Dentists can manage their own profiles, which include photos, practice information, and a variety of other information (office address, map and hours; contact information, including practice website link; education; languages spoken; years in practice; insurance acceptance and payment options; and recognized-specialty affiliations). One new search option will allow prospective patients to search for dentists with photos, so you are encouraged to upload a photo along with your other practice information. Member profiles will still be available on ADA.org as part of the Member Directory, which can only be accessed by ADA members.
