Dental Video Animations By Medivision

  IS A DENTAL VIDEO WORTH VIEWING? No matter how much explanatory text design4dentists include on a web page, there is no better way of demonstrating a treatment than by a dental video or animation.

This is when a visual demonstration can help users to understand the treatment process in a clear and easy way.   WHAT IS MEDIVISION? Not everyone wants to see a real-life dental video. This can […]

Sometimes they ask for very personal information and before you know it, you are being bombarded with emails, newsletters and junk mail.

Invest In Your Website – Step 3

  WHY INVEST IN YOUR WEBSITE? It is true to say that a professional website is an essential marketing tool for any business today. It is now proving to be worthwhile to seriously invest in your website. Many dentists are now seeing a major contribution to their monthly income from patients who make contact through their websites. The surprising fact is, many of these dentists are unaware of this as they do not regularly monitor its activity. One must understand that the secret to a successful website does not lie in being listed number one on Google.
