We Did It!

January 5th, 2012

At TNT Dental, we know how essential a happening social media presence can be for your business. That’s why when we noticed our Facebook page had fewer than 500 fans, we decided to get it in gear and make a big push with a campaign to raise awareness of TNT Dental. We think our company, its people, and its products are pretty great, but we needed to get the word out!

In just two months, we went from 430-something likes to over 1,000 — 1,015 at the time of this writing, to be exact. How did we accomplish this amazing feat? We combined the efforts of our employees with the goals of ChariTNT to accomplish multiple goals at once. Not only did our campaign help more people get to know TNT Dental, but we spread the word about our ChariTNT beneficiary for the holiday season, the North Texas Food Bank — and we managed to gather A LOT of food to contribute to the North Texas Food Bank, too!

The challenge? If we got to 1,000 likes by the end of December, our founding fathers The Tims would double the donations brought in by TNT Dental employees for the North Texas Food Bank. We put the word out, with every TNT Dental employee spreading the word and donating food. As you can see, the boxes filled up…

Once we hit our 1,000 likes, The Tims doubled what was in the boxes! Thanks to the generosity of our employees who brought in a lot of non-perishable food items, our food drive was a success! And, of course, we couldn’t have done it without all of our raving Facebook fans!

So thank you to everyone who liked us, to all of our employees for getting the word out and bringing in canned goods for the North Texas Food Bank, and, of course, The Tims for their generosity this holiday season. And our new year’s resolution? To keep coming up with fun and exciting ways to let more people know about TNT Dental and help our community through ChariTNT!

TNT Dental is Proud to Help Halloween Candy Buy Back!

November 1st, 2011

Tonight, kids around the country will go trick-or-treating, coming home at the end of the evening with bags and pales full of candy. Dentists find Halloween scary for this very reason: more candy means more cavities. If you’re looking for a way to cut down on how much candy your kids eat this Halloween and want to help brighten the lives of troops serving overseas, TNT Dental wants you to know about the Halloween Candy Buy Back program.

The program is simple. Participating dentists buy back candy from kids in a variety of ways–cash, coupons, toothbrushes, partnerships with local businesses for giveaways…the list goes on. Your kid still gets a Halloween treat in the form of whatever payment your dentist has chosen, and you get to rest assured know that they aren’t eating all that candy! And the candy? The candy is then sent to Operation Gratitude or other military support programs.

So this Halloween, don’t scare your dentist–help him or her help troops enjoy some sweet treats with the Halloween Candy Buy Back Program!

Introducing ChariTNT!

October 18th, 2011

TNT Dental is excited to announce our new social responsibility program, ChariTNT!

We’re starting off with a bang with two separate projects: the ChariTNT Food Drive benefiting North Texas Food Bank and ChariTNT Volunteer Day at Minnie’s Pantry in Plano.

And you can help no matter where you are!

The food drive is off to a great start, but you can help us double the impact we’ll have on hunger this holiday season. If we get 1,000 Facebook likes by Christmas, The Tims–our fearless leaders and the founders of TNT Dental–will double the number of cans we donate! All you have to do is like our Facebook page to help feed hungry people in North Texas! Visit the North Texas Food Bank’s website to learn more about all the wonderful work this organization does for families in North Texas.

While we steadily gather food for our food drive, we’re also having our first ChariTNT Volunteer Day! We’ve joined forces with Minnie’s Food Pantry right here in Plano. On November 11, 2011, we will be heading over to Minnie’s to lend an extra hand–or sixty of them!–to help with heavy lifting and handing out supplies.

These two projects are only the beginning–we’re looking forward to more volunteering opportunities and finding ways to give back to our community. Our ChariTNT motto? We can’t do everything, but we can do something.

So…Why Is a Reskin So Important Anyway?

September 29th, 2011

If your dental practice has been online for a while, you may feel like you can sit back, relax, and get back to the business of caring for your patients. But did you know that one of the thing search engines look for when assessing your ranking in results is how recently you’ve updated? That’s right. It makes sense that relevance is associated with how current you are. Otherwise, people would be stumbling upon now defunct practices, and their searches would be yielding less than stellar results.

What does this mean in non-geek speak? It means that if your site is more than a couple of years old, it’s probably time for an update.

On the Verge of a Big Announcement, TNT Dental Looks Back

September 23rd, 2011

TNT Dental recognizes that staying relevant in the fast-paced internet world requires change. New and exciting things are happening around here at TNT Dental, and we’re gearing up for a big surprise announcement. And while we’re moving forward and growing like crazy, we’d like to take a look back at the very beginning of TNT Dental.

So how did TNT Dental all begin in the first place?

Tim Kelley and Tim Healy (affectionately known around here as The Tims) met while working for a dental lab management company. They were given the task of finding someone to create a website for their employer. A simple enough task, right? Well, they quickly discovered that no one they interviewed understood their business well enough to create the right online brand presence. As they say, necessity is the mother of invention, and it was this difficulty that was the spark that eventually blew up into TNT Dental.

The Tims set out to create the website themselves. Once they finished, they decided to fill a need: they started TNT Dental to create websites for dental practices made by people who actually understood dentistry. That was 11 years ago, and TNT Dental hasn’t stopped growing since.

Now stay tuned for our big surprise…

We’re Gearing Up for Halloween at TNT Dental!

September 14th, 2011

Did you know that one of our copywriters is a published author? Michele Bardsley is the mind behind the Broken Hearts series, which follows the romances of vampires. So who better to craft a little Halloween fun for TNT Dental? She’s going to be writing a series of posts about the dental care of paranormal creatures as we lead up to the big day, and the first in the series is all about proper dental care for werewolves.

Happy Halloween from TNT Dental!

Proper Dental Care for Werewolves

Werewolves are people, too.

Sorta.

We at TNT Dental know that werewolves have special oral healthcare needs. After all, what kind of toothbrush is really the best for … well, canines? And regular floss isn’t going to do the trick, especially after those all-you-can-chase-and-eat buffets on full-moon nights. Read More…

You know that a website is important to attracting patients online. You know that a blog and fresh, incoming content are important to your website rankings. You’ve signed up for a blog with TNT Dental. Now what?

For a dentist or a member of a dental team, an office blog can seem intimidating. How do you know what tone to take? How much do you need to write? How do you cater to search engines?

What should I post on my blog?

If your ultimate goal is to attract new patients, then you can follow these simple steps to master your blog and entice not only new patients, but also search engines. (Skip to Ghost Posting)

1. Create Compelling Content – What’s the MOST IMPORTANT aspect of your blog? That people actually read it! And maybe they’ll even find it so interesting that they’ll pass it along to their friends via incoming links. The tricky part here is the “compelling” part. What will appeal to your patients? The answer will be different for every practice, but here are a few ideas:

  • Answers to questions patients frequently ask.
  • The latest dental news, technology, or equipment.
  • New services or continuing-education courses.
  • Patient profiles (photos or videos).
  • Local/office events.

Chances are, if YOU find it interesting, your patients will too, and don’t be afraid to have a little fun every now and then. Read the rest of this entry »
