San Antonio Dentist Enhances Patients' Experience Through Facebook Page

SAN ANTONIO, TX--(Marketwire - Feb 15, 2012) - San Antonio dentist Dr. Tom Watkins has developed a Facebook page which contains information about the practice as well as links to articles and videos, and can also be used to request appointments. Dr. Watkins, Dr. Alejandro Cavazos and the professional dental team at the W Dental Group are using the practice's Facebook page to further communicate and connect with their patients and other members of the community. The doctors hope to use it to provide information on dentistry topics so that patients and non-patients alike will have a better understanding of the importance of proper dental care.

Educational information provided through the page includes a recent link to an article on children's dental month. Members of the Facebook community will also receive links to the practice's newsletter and blog which cover such dental topics as invisible braces, women's dental health issues, teeth whitening, oral surgery and dental implants. The page also provides interesting bits of information on topics in dental history, updates on the practice and its community involvement, which includes participation in such events as the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition Walk/Run 5K Guests and giving back to charities such as Smiles for Hope in San Antonio. Facebook users are invited to provide reviews or recommendations on their experience with oral surgery, teeth whitening, or dental implants at the W Dental Group. The practice also includes information on referral contests and patient promotions, including the current New Patient Special which offers a free exam and x-rays.

The San Antonio dentist and staff frequently updates the page and hopes that patients and those with an interest in dental care will feel free to use it to ask questions, make comments and be kept informed on W Dental Group news. Dr. Watkins said, "We believe very strongly in educating patients as well as treating them. There are many topics patients ask us about in the office, such as teeth whitening and dental implants, and we know that others would be interested in similar information. We're hoping to use this page to spread reliable oral health information to the greatest number of people possible and connect with our community outside of our dental office doors."

The W Dental Group provides a full range of dentistry services. In addition to cleaning and examinations, the doctors also provide oral surgery, cosmetic dentistry, veneers and orthodontics. Dr. Watkins is involved in many professional and charitable organizations and also travels to third world countries to provide dental care. Dr. Cavazos graduated from dental school in 2010 and then participated in a one year Advanced Education residency program at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio before joining the practice.
