Tell a Friend About the Dentist

You can choose to include an optional “Tell-A-Friend” button on your web portal that will allow your patients to recommend your services to their friends by sending an email.

For best results, IDA recommends that you provide an incentive or special offer to be included in this email.

Either use our pre-written suggestions, or write an offer of your own.

The “Tell a Friend” area in the “Customize Portals” section of the Control Panel lets you optionally display a page on your dentist website where patients can recommend you and your site to their friends. The patient’s friend gets an email recommending the dentist that also includes a special introductory offer. The patient who made the recommendation also gets an email confirmation.

If you want to include this feature on your web portal, go to the “Tell a Friend” area of the Control Panel and make sure the “Display on Portal” box in the top right corner is checked. If you do not want a “Tell a Friend” page on your web portal, uncheck this box.

What you see on this page is the content of the email that will be sent to the patient’s friend. It includes merge fields in curly brackets where your information will automatically appear. You can customize the email’s subject line and the message text. IDA also recommends including a special offer. You can choose one of our pre-written suggestions by selecting it from the drop-down list. Edit it however you like, or write your own. Click save when you’re finished. If you don’t like your changes, you can always hit “Reset” to return to the default text.
