SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 20, 2013) - Dentalcompare, the leading online product information resource for the dental industry and business unit of CompareNetworks, Inc., today announced they have reached a major milestone in their product directory overhaul and have expanded their editorial content.
"After surveying over 2,000 US Dentists, we now know what information Dentists look for when making purchasing decisions," said Eric McGovern, Product Manager for Dentalcompare. "By focusing our initiatives on meeting these needs we have created a more trusted, comprehensive and unbiased resource for dental professionals worldwide."
With over 8,000 dental products in the product directory, Dentalcompare focused on the major categories first. Large equipment, small equipment, materials and software categories have been overhauled and are now:
- Comprehensive & Unbiased - All equipment, products and materials are listed regardless of the manufacturer advertising with Dentalcompare.
- Include Complete Specifications - Dentalcompare's clinical experts have determined which specifications are important for each product, and all product specs are normalized so they may be compared.
- Include Pricing Information - Dentalcompare added an average price for each product taken from at least three sources.
Last August, Dentalcompare also hired Noah Levine, a long-time editor for the dental industry. Levine has expanded Dentalcompare's editorial content to provide deeper and unique product education including Buyer's Guides, case studies and product reviews.
"We are very excited about these changes on Dentalcompare and have already seen a 49% increase in unique visitors to the site," said Dennis O'Neill, Publisher for Dentalcompare. "By focusing on the needs of dentists we're able to provide an exceptional user experience and ultimately deliver more value to our advertising partners."
