My favorite top 10 dental websites.

My top 10 Dental Websites

I’m sure I sound like an old geezer by reminiscing about the old days.  I remember dentistry WITHOUT dental websites.  Do you remember those days? For a few hours each year we would meet with our local phone book representative, pick the size of ad that we wanted to run in the Yellow Pages. We would pick some colors, look at some stock photos, go over a few dental phrases, and within a few minutes our dental office marketing would be done for the year. We would then wait for the phone book to come out, and when it did we would pass it around the office for all to see, and compare it to all the other dental offices in the area.  Life was so simple … Continue reading →


The Truther Girls

DENTISTS HATE THIS VIDEO! I don’t hate the video but I must admit, I am a bit envious. 2,272,819 views and counting?!?! 2 million and change. Are you kidding me? That is one popular video. Those are great numbers!  I don’t know who the Truther Girls are, but I’m curious, what’s their magic? Hmmm, how to create video content that is creative, interesting and informative?  And better yet get millions of hits?  Do you have any ideas?

This little Invisalign smile of mine . . .

Chantel Woitko - This little Invisalign smile of mine . . .

Does Chantel Woitko have the prettiest smile ever? Today as she walked in, I knew this was going to be a fun day because Chantel has reached a milestone in her Invisalign journey. This is the day we are scheduled to take her Invisalign buttons off! She no longer has to wear her aligners 24×7 and  will now be transitioning to Vivera Retainers by Invisalign to maintain her beautiful smile! I was so taken by the moment I composed a song for her on the spot.  Good thing there where no recorders preset to record. Are you familiar to the tune of This Little Light of Mine? Same melody, different words. This little smile of mine . . . I’m gonna let it … Continue reading →

John gets his smile ready for Florida!

John Dimier getting his smile ready for Florida

Dental websites can be interesting and informative or simple with minimal information. We at Seasons of Smiles Dental are very proud of our website because it’s so much more than just a yellow page ad with our phone number. It’s a working website. We  have it full of educational material that we can share with our patients. For example, depending on our patients’ situation we can show them how crowns work, or examples of what zirconium crowns look like. Or information regarding Invisalign. Lots of informative stuff. One day while John was in the dental chair, something caught his eye on the computer screen. “Bill Curtis has a smile makeover”. When I walked in John asked me about the smile makeover that was … Continue reading →

Is there really such a thing as a tooth tattoo?

Sunflower Tooth Tattoo

A few years back my wife and I took some time off to walk up and down Atlantic Avenue for the Camden ME Arts and Crafts show.  My wife who is always on the lookout for making a new friend, overheard a conversation that a “tourist” was having with one of the artisans, and she overheard the “tourist” verbalize that he was a tooth artist. My dear wife then came over to me, and suggested that I should go over and talk to the “tourist”, that mostly likely he was a dentist too. Ok, that’s not going to happen.  I remember thinking, “Leave him alone Lanita, he is on vacation.” While later on in the same day Lanita happened to run into the … Continue reading →

Seth Godin at the dental office.

Seth Godin has beautiful Teeth!

I’m not exactly sure when or how I got on Seth Godin’s blog mailing list. Nevertheless, I did subscribe.  So every morning I get a morsel, a tidbit, a thought.  More often than not, I have to read it two times, three times, and I must admit there are times I’m not 100% sure that I understand what he is trying to say. May 2nd of this year Seth had a blog post about hygiene.  When I started reading it, it piqued my interest. Can we take what he has to say about hygiene in gereral, and apply what he says to dental hygiene? “Way better than getting hit in the face with a 2 x 4.” – Seth Godin Instead of … Continue reading →
