    About Pain Free Dental Marketing







    Our Digital Marketing Agency For Dentists began with one question from a curious dentist: “What are you working on?” While waiting in a chair for his annual exam, Eric was on his laptop, wrapping up a digital marketing strategy for a Fortune 300 company. A conversation ensued, resulting in the dentist asking Eric another question; “How can I get this for my practice?”

    Eric, Andre, and their team successfully applied the same methodologies they used for large marketing companies to quickly grow the practice. The dentist was ecstatic and happily referred us to all of his dentist friends. We knew we had something special and began to grow the team in order to make sure all of our clients achieved similar results through a high level of service. Our dental marketing agency was born.
