PatientSmart: ADA patient education for your website

With just a click from your homepage, patients have access to up to 26 different topics related to dental health and treatment. (You’ll be able to tailor the list to meet the specific needs of your practice.)

For each topic, the patient education information will be available in a video format as well as text and images drawn from the ADA’s most important brochures. That way, your patient can digest the information in the manner he or she prefers.

Each page of PatientSmart has your contact information at the top, so patients always have your practice in mind. You can email links to specific topics with ease—either to prepare your patient for a visit or to reinforce messages you convey chairside.

Sample Menu Page

When one of the six main categories such as “Kids and Babies” is clicked, a menu of topics appears. You have the option to hide topics or entire categories if you wish.
