Chances are you may have become a dental copywriter because you just love to write. Many dental copywriters come from a wide range of academic backgrounds. So, if you’re new to the industry and feel like you don’t know enough about dentistry; we are here to help! Below are a few helpful tips from your dental writing friends at Words for Dentists. If you’re writing a dental website or a dental blog, properly understanding dentistry is paramount to building your clients’ reputation as a local expert on the Internet.
Purchase Dental Textbooks
We recommend ordering textbooks for dental hygienists and dentists. Textbooks help broaden your understanding of all facets of dentistry. Dental textbooks also provide diagrams, illustrations, and indexes. With a dental textbook, you can read it cover to cover or simply study one topic at a time. By gaining an insider’s perspective about clinical dentistry, you can better understand the needs of your clients and compartmentalize information that your readers need to know.
Subscribe to Dental Blogs
Spend an hour or two and search for dental blogs on the Internet. One of our favorites, Dental Junkie, offers the latest information on research, Internet marketing, and events in the dental industry. When you find an informative blog that presents factual information, we recommend that you subscribe to it to stay up to date with dental news.
Read Studies Published by Organizations and Government Agencies
The American Dental Association’s website along with the National Institutes of Health’s website, offer public access to the latest research and publications on dental and medical topics. We recommend bookmarking these pages in your web browser and routinely checking these websites for new information.
