Making Sure Your Dental Marketing Accommodates All Demographics

Dental marketing for demographicsIt's important, for all the time and money that you put into your marketing, efforts need to pay off. If your dental marketing is only reaching a limited demographic, you may be missing out on bringing in a wide array of clients. You need to be using multiple formats (such as reviews, a dental website, and flyers or dental postcards) with different content on each format. The message you put on a direct mail campaign may not be the right content for your website, etc.

The reason for making sure you have variety in your dental marketing efforts is because you need to bring in all different types of patients. The different patients will respond differently to each format and the content it contains. In order to ensure that you’re reaching every demographic possible, you need to include variety in your dental marketing campaigns.


The first step in creating a successful marketing plan for a dental practice is to research and discover the different types of patients you want to attract to your dental office. Are you accepting Medicaid? Or, are you insurance based? What types of income levels live within your specific are? These are great questions to begin asking and getting answers to. This is especially important if you’re creating a dental practice from scratch, as you’ll need new patients to get your practice off the ground.

Below are some of the categories your potential patients will fall into. This is why you’ll need to make sure you know what appeals to each audience and how to reach them.


  • Adults (male or female)
  • Children (separated into age groups)
  • Income bracket
  • Where they live
  • Their occupations
  • How they’ll be able to pay your office (insurance providers, etc.)


  • Regular cleanings and exams
  • Mid-range dentistry such as crowns
  • Larger jobs such as complete smile makeovers
  • Dental emergencies
  • Type of specialties you may perform
