New Futuredontics’ Report Reveals Growth of Social Media Usage Among Dental Professionals

Futuredontics® has released an exclusive new report for dental professionals entitled, “How Dental Practices Use Social Media.” The report is now available to all dental professionals as a free download.

The comprehensive 21-page report offers an in-depth view of social media in dentistry today — the platforms practices employ, how they use them and the challenges dental professionals face in maintaining an effective social media presence. The findings are based on a recent online survey of nearly 500 dental professionals nationwide.

The all-new report found that 90% of dental practices now use social media, a figure that has increased by 37% in the past five years. Participants’ responses suggest a growing interest in incorporating social media into their overall marketing strategies. This is in contrast to our 2013 study citing only 58% of dentists believing social media to be important.

Report Highlights Reveal:

• Who is primarily responsible for social media in most practices

• The amount of time most dental practices say they are spending on social media

• The number one, most used social media platform among dental practices

• The biggest social media challenges according to dental professionals

“When it comes to social media and its widespread use, the dental industry is no different than any other. We are seeing how practices are searching for the best ways to take advantage of this technology and its popularity,” said Futuredontics co-founder Fred Joyal. “In creating this survey and the report of its findings, we are able to not only learn dental professionals’ social media challenges and successes, but also discover how to better support their efforts. In that way, this report becomes just one more tool we can offer dentists to help their practices grow and prosper in today’s competitive market.”
