MARKETING PRACTICES

ABOUT MARKETING PRACTICES

At Marketing Practices, we love helping Practice Principals and Practice Managers plan and implement effective marketing strategies to attract new patients and retain existing ones.

Having coached many practices over the years we understand that marketing a practice is challenging yet rewarding at best, overwhelming at worst:

  • You lack the time, so your approach is a little ad hoc and doesn't seem to get much traction.
  • You realise the value of a strong online presence, but find it nearly impossible to keep up to date with the rapid developments in digital and social media marketing. You have a sense that there is a great opportunity... if only you knew how.
  • No matter what you do, you just don't seem to be attracting your ideal patients, the ones that are profitable and you enjoy treating.
  • You know you offer great patient service but you need to increase awareness and build the reputation of your practice in order for it to grow. How do you encourage your patients to authentically refer your practice without feeling like a salesperson?

We also understand that marketing is just a small element of all the things that you are juggling with the heavy demands of running your practice

This is where we come in...

Marketing Practices is a marketing help desk for Australian Practice Principals and Practice Managers of dental, medical, chiropractic and physiotherapy practices, to gain knowledge, training, expert advice and support

Roslyn Franklin | Owner & Director

Amalgamate

Amalgamate is an industry leader in dental infection prevention and control and was founded on a thorough knowledge of all aspects of dentistry practice. Infection control is a constantly evolving topic, and this pandemic has certainly brought it to the forefront.

All dental practices operate within legal guidelines and standards, which provide a minimum level of operational protection. But it is easy to get overwhelmed by the explosion of infection control information available online and through social media.

While all of this can feel overwhelming, and the situation is challenging from both a practice and business perspective, this is an opportunity to proactively look at your infection control program, training, manuals, and documentation. This will have value in both the short and longer term.

At Amalgamate, we understand the daily constraints and requirements that dental practitioners, practice managers, dental assistants and staff operate under.

Amalgamate can provide the following tailored to your dental practice:

  • Infection control training workshops (on-site and virtual)
  • Infection control manual (new or review/edit your existing manual)
  • Infection control management plans
  • Infection control audits & reports

We work with your dental practice to achieve realistic and practical infection control by simplifying the whole process. We’ll help you work out where you now are and the best way to move forward.

ABOUT DR ROSLYN FRANKLIN

Dr Roslyn Franklin founded Amalgamate in 2015. Roslyn is a dentist and Infection Prevention & Control Professional committed to supporting dental practices. Roslyn’s early clinical practice included working in government and private dental practices. Roslyn then stepped back from the dental profession and worked as a trainer and assessor for dental assistants and then as a compliance coordinator in the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector. On re-entering the dental industry in 2015, Roslyn wanted to make a difference without necessarily going back ‘on-the-tools’. Combining her experience in dentistry, training and compliance (not to mention her love of regulations, order and paperwork), Amalgamate was created.

Roslyn has continuously maintained her Dental Board of Australia and Australian Dental Association registrations to keep her skills current. Her passion is infection control, and in 2018 she completed a Graduate Certificate in Infection Prevention & Control at Griffith University. She is an active member of the Australasian College of Infection Prevention and Control.

Roslyn believes in providing a high level of personal service with attention to detail relevant to your practice.

Dental Stock Photos

Dental Stock Photos is the first and only dental-specific stock photo site that supplies high resolution, unique, realistic and accurate dental images. Our photos assist you in showcasing, elevating and promoting your dental industry business.

Our stock photos are not just for textbooks and training. They are also suitable for social media, websites, advertising, magazines, marketing, banners, and presentations.

All our images are arranged in collections, saving you time when on the hunt for a photo.

Our collections include:

  • SMILES (great for marketing, social media and websites)
  • BITE SPLINTS
  • CHILDREN'S DENTAL
  • GENERAL DENTISTRY
  • DENTAL TREATMENT
  • DENTURES
  • FLAY LAYS
  • ROOT CANALS
  • ORTHODONTICS
  • And many more…..

It is challenging to find accurate and authentic dental images on general stock image sites. Many dental photos are taken by photographers who have very little understanding of dentistry, the tools and equipment and the proper use of PPE.

Dr Roslyn Franklin, an experienced dentist, teacher of dental assistants, writer of dental education materials, and passionate prevention and infection control consultant, oversees all images on Dental Stock Photos. Dr Franklin ensures all photos show the correct use of tools and equipment and are relevant to industry standards.

Our images are unique so that you will stand out from your competitors.

ABOUT DR ROSLYN FRANKLIN

I am Dr Roslyn Franklin, owner and Director of Dental Stock Photos. I have been working in the dental industry for more than 25 years.

I am a dentist, a teacher of dental assistants, a writer of dental educational materials, and a passionate infection prevention and control consultant.

Dental Stock Photos was born out of the frustration of not being able to access accurate and authentic dental images on general stock image sites. And, from seeing so many inaccurate, poor-quality and 'cheesy' images that did not reflect the dental industry's professionalism.

It was time for the dental industry to have quick and easy access to quality and accurate images that showcase, promote and champion our dental industry.
