Given the huge role that the internet plays in our lives, every dentist should hopefully have realised by now that their dental practice needs to have its own website. Now assuming that your skills and experience relate to dental matters rather than web design, it is a safe bet that you are going to have to hire someone to build you that website.
That then brings us to the question of where to find a reputable web designer, and it is a process that needs to be done with care. Bear in mind your website is the first thing people who find you online are going to see, so you want that first impression to be a good one.
The first place many people start their search for a website designer and developer is to ask those that they know such as friends, family, and business associates. As a dentist, you could even ask those patients whom you know have websites themselves.
Word of mouth recommendations are a great way to discover the experience the person who tells you about a website designer had when they hired them. However, do not just rely on their word. Check out the website that was built for them, and if you have can, ascertain the name of the web designer’s own website, and visit it to see if there are reviews and references.
