Is your Find-a-Dentist profile up to date?

In July, the ADA launched a new national ad campaign to help make it easier for patients to find ADA dentists. With the ad campaign, potential patients are seeing new digital ads that share amazing teeth facts and urge them to schedule a dental checkup with an ADA dentist. The ad campaign is the latest phase of a three-year initiative to drive new patients to ADA members.

Screen Shot 2016-11-02 at 10.10.46 AMThe ADA encourages members to fill out their Find-a-Dentist profiles, complete with a photo, practice information, office hours and payment options.

The online tool allows prospective patients to easily find an ADA member dentist using a ZIP code or address. They can refine their search using distance, specialty, gender, and payment options.

Participating ADA member dentists are prioritized in the search results starting with the most complete profiles. So, the more complete the profile, the higher in the search results page.

To update your Find-a-Dentist profile, log in to your MyADA page, ADA.org/MyADA, using your member ID number and password. For more information or assistance, contact the ADA Member Service Center. For more information on the campaign and for resources to help market a practice, visit ADA.org/findadentist.

  • Yeah, it’s important for a dentist to have a profile on this website

  • This is a great way for new dentists to get the word out. I will tell my dental assistant students.

  • This is a great reminder and resource for a couple of reasons. Most folks forget to fill out their professional profiles. When I’m looking to hire a professional service, for example a electrician or computer guy, a lot of times I find their listing on some directory, I click on the profile and all it is, is a name and a business name.

    I usually skip the empty profile and go with the guy that has a picture and a filled out profile. Plus it just makes sense to fill out your ADA profile because the ADA is the most trusted association for dentist.

    Thanks for posting this.

  • As a dental patient at Sonrisa Dental Care in Houston, I have to agree that updating your Find-a-Dentist profile is important. That is how me and my whole family found Dr. Tutu of Sonrisa Dental Care and we couldn’t be happier!

  • I’ve been looking for a new dentist for my family. I’m glad you talked about how the ada encourages dentists to fill out profiles. I’m going to have to check out a few of these dentists and see who we think would be good for our family!

  • I loved when you mentioned how you should take the time to use online tools when looking for a good dentist. It is important to understand that doing some research can help you find the best dentists in your area. Personally, I would also want to take the time to read online reviews in order to find someone that can help with my dental needs.
