Running a business in the modern marketplace without a website is like operating without a storefront, and that’s as true for pediatric dentistry websites as it is for a local computer shop. Designing websites for pediatric dentistry can be a challenging endeavor, requiring a broad set of skills across multiple disciplines to accomplish. From making choices for the site’s color palette to designing a striking and memorable logo, there’s a lot to be decided before you even get started. The best pediatric dentistry websites combine beautiful design with functionality and security. For any business in the medical industry, it’s absolutely necessary that HIPAA security is integrated into its design.
Today’s patients are seeking features that meet their on-the-go lifestyles, such as click-to-dial and direct-to-map functionality that gets them in touch with your office with a single click. Mobile responsiveness is also key so the site can be easily viewed on desktops and mobile devices alike. Combine these elements with downloadable patient forms, online patient registration, and HIPAA secure contact points to schedule appointments without a phone call, and you’ve got a site that will meet expectations.
Below we’ve included a collection of websites that accomplish these goals while retaining their own unique character.
