Permanent link  Social Media Trending at Midwinter Meeting


Our recent member dentist survey revealed an impressive jump in social media activity among dental offices. 67 percent of the dentists surveyed say that their practice has a Facebook page, which is up from a 17 percent response last year. In addition, nearly 24 percent say their practice uses Twitter, up from 6 percent, and 14 percent are using YouTube, up from 4 percent. 

We met up with Anastasia Turchetta, whose course on communications in dentistry has been a hit at this year’s Midwinter Meeting, to ask for tips on a successful social media strategy for dentists. 

We ran into Dr. Katie Garcia and Dr. Danielle Barstad on the exhibit floor and found the dentists recognize that social media is trending at this year's Midwinter Meeting.
