Social Media and Legal Considerations for Dentistry



After spending a good amount of time considering a large number of prominent dentists and industry professionals who’ve proven to be effective in all things social media, we’ve narrowed our list down to ten. By no means was this an easy task, as we consistently observe and interact with many dental pros who do a wonderful job of producing great content and nurturing relationships on various social media platforms.

  1. I’d like to mention myself as a new person on the scene. My name is Dr. David Wank and I’m a practicing general dentist, and I wrote “The Web Design Workbook for Dentists”. I maintain a internet marketing blog for dentists that keeps people informed about what you need to know about the world of dental web development and social media,.
