Oaklands Dental is a reputable dental practice located in the UK, committed to providing high-quality dental care and a positive patient experience. However, their existing website suffered from various issues, including being outdated, slow, malfunctioning, and lacking support. This hindered Oaklands Dental’s online presence and their ability to effectively communicate with current and potential patients.
Oaklands Dental approached us with several pressing challenges that needed to be addressed:
Outdated Website: The existing website’s design and functionality no longer reflected Oaklands Dental’s commitment to modern dental practices, resulting in a disconnect with their target audience.
Poor Performance: Slow loading times and technical issues hindered the website’s user experience, leading to high bounce rates and potential patient loss.
Lack of Support: The absence of ongoing support meant that Oaklands Dental was unable to promptly address issues, update content, or implement necessary changes.
We implemented a comprehensive strategy to transform Oaklands Dental’s online presence and address their specific challenges. The following key solutions were implemented:
New WordPress Website Design: We crafted a modern, visually appealing, and user-friendly WordPress website to align with Oaklands Dental’s branding and improve user engagement. The new design showcased their services, team, and patient testimonials effectively.
Responsive Design: The website was optimised for responsiveness, ensuring a seamless browsing experience across various devices, including desktops, tablets, and mobile phones. This feature allowed potential patients to access information easily, regardless of the device they were using.
Live Chat Integration: We added a live chat feature to the website, enabling real-time communication between Oaklands Dental and their website visitors. This feature facilitated prompt responses to patient enquiries, improving customer satisfaction and conversion rates.
Ongoing Support and Maintenance: We provided Oaklands Dental with dedicated ongoing support, including regular website maintenance, content updates, and technical assistance. This support ensured the website remained up-to-date, secure, and fully functional at all times.
In addition to the website transformation, we implemented a comprehensive SEO strategy to enhance Oaklands Dental’s online visibility and organic search rankings. Notable SEO successes achieved include:
Keyword Research and Optimisation: We conducted extensive keyword research to identify relevant and high-value keywords in the dental industry. These keywords were strategically incorporated into website content, meta tags, and headings to improve search engine visibility.
On-Page Optimisation: The website’s structure, content, and metadata were optimized according to SEO best practices. This included optimising title tags, meta descriptions, and alt attributes to improve search engine indexing and ranking.
