How important are dental practice reviews?
Dental practice reviews matter! I would say that dental practice reviews are pretty important, providing that, they are genuine. Previously, choosing a good dental practice involved an element of luck. However, now with, the advent of technology, you can research the practice you are interested in.
Dental practice reviews – The TripAdvisor culture
I don’t book any holiday without checking out the reviews of the hotel on TripAdvisor, or a similar site. To me this is important.
As a result, I try to read the real holiday maker reviews, as opposed to the hotel sales pitch. Therefore, I feel more comfortable when making the booking; knowing that other people have enjoyed their stay.
With this in mind, choosing a dental practice is no different. It’s important that patients are aware of what other patients think. Positive and negative experiences count! Nobody wants to attend a dental practice with faulty equipment, unfriendly receptionists or dentists. Even more importantly, the practice’s own website is unlikely to say this about themselves. I believe what real people say, and it’s nice that our patients have this opportunity to do so too.
Google Street View
Our practice is in Tettenhall, Wolverhampton. It’s a lovely part of the world. A lovely village, tree lined streets and a beautiful high street.
However, don’t take my word for it. You can use google street view to check out our practice surroundings. I often use google street view when looking at businesses I wish to use to get an idea of their locality.
Google reviews cannot be easily removed; therefore, they are pretty representative. Read our google reviews, or the reviews of any dental practice you are considering. This will help you to get a feel for the levels of service provision.
Incidentally, we’re really proud to say that we have over 100 reviews of our practice!
Google Business Images
Often you will find images uploaded by patients or the owners of dental practice in the google places page. Take a look, see if the content is relevant and current. Click the link to see our business images.
The google star rating is a total of all the google reviews.
If the business has a Facebook page, the likelihood will be that there are Facebook Reviews. Check them out. Click to see our Facebook page
Yell.com, Yelp and Trustpilot
These are other business directories that offer the chance to review businesses. Search for the business you are looking for in these sites, to give you more opportunities to look for reviews. Click to see our yell.co.uk listing, or click to see our yelp.co.uk listing.
Check to see if the practice you are considering has a YouTube page. Consequently, you may find patient testimonial videos, or even videos of the practice. With this in mind, you can find our YouTube page by searching for Rock House Dental practice, or clicking here.
