Permanent link  Survey: 20% of dentists using social media tools


In this fall's 2008 survey, The Chicago Dental Society asked dentists a couple questions about how they use the internet and social media. The society found out that 11% of dentists surveyed said they occasionally scan "review" websites such as Yelp and Angie's List to find out what patients say about their practice. 20% of dentists surveyed used online networking sites, with Facebook as their top choice (15%). Other popular sites were LinkedIn (7%) and MySpace (4%).

What about you? Do you check out your ratings on Yelp or "friend" your patients on Facebook?
