What is a great website? What features or functions come to mind when you think of an effective website. Our team of results-driven, creative minds thrive on helping dentists and dental professionals showcase their skills and attract new patients through effective website design. This month we’re highlighting Upper Valley Pediatric Dentistry’s website (http://uvpediatricdentistry.com/).
Scrolling Is In
We love that this website features a vibrant homepage that builds as you scroll. Have you noticed the trend in web design emphasizing up and down scrolling? Mobile devices have quickly gained prominence as the way people access websites and information. People are fast becoming used to scrolling to see more. Not only does scrolling work great for mobile websites, but it can translate over to the desktop as well.
Your Website Should Feature Your Skills and Expertise
The goal of any professional website should be two-fold: showcase yourself and explain what you can do for prospective patients. We chose to highlight the groups and organizations that Dr. Saunders is a member of in the footer of her website. When you visit the about page, you will see an actual photo of the doctor with a short biography. Patients want to put a face to the name. Every website should include a doctor and team photo.
Use Real Photos
The goal of your website is to welcome new patients to your office. An effective way to create an inviting atmosphere is to set expectations with real office photos. Show off your reception area and treatment room. We love that this website features a few real office photos on the homepage.
Your website should attract patients, not drive them away. If you are ready to modernize your existing website or start fresh with a brand new one, we can help. Contact us for a free consultation.
