    What Practices Should Be Doing For More Visibility and Credibility with Dr. Len Tau

    What Practices Should Be Doing For More Visibility and Credibility with Dr. Len Tau

    Dr. Len is back with us today to talk about what dental practices should be doing for more visibility and credibility. Dr. Len shares advice on why you should stop your marketing spend until you have a steady flow of reviews for your practice. This is one of the biggest mistakes that Dr. Len sees with practices, that practice owners are spending tons on marketing without the reviews to back it up.
    Chosen as one of the top leaders in dental consulting by Dentistry Today, Len Tau, DMD, has dedicated his professional life to improving dentistry for both patients and other dentists. 
    After purchasing his practice, the Pennsylvania Center for Dental Excellence
    in Philadelphia in 2007, Len practiced full-time while consulting to other dental practices, training thousands of dentists about reputation marketing, leading the dental division of BirdEye, a reputation marketing platform, and hosting the popular, Raving Patients podcast. He recently authored the book Raving Patients and the soon to be released 100 Tips to 100 Reviews in 100 Days 
    In 2018, Len cut down to practicing dentistry two days per week to focus additional time and attention to helping other dentists build broad and compelling online footprints that attract hundreds of new patients to their practices.  In October 2021 he sold his dental practice but continues to provide his patients dental care 2 days per week while commuting from Parkland , Florida where he has resided since October 2020.  
    Len lectures nationally and internationally on using internet marketing, social media, and reputation marketing to make dental offices more visible and credible as well as how to increase their case acceptance.
