We live in an age where websites, apps, and other digital technologies provide an avenue to communicate with millions of people—from right next door to across the globe. The power of social media and digital platforms can create effective ways to educate, inform, and persuade. These tools can also be used to advance the profession of dental hygiene.
Dental hygienists are hungry for the latest information on best practices and status of the profession. You can reach thousands of dental hygienists with just a single post. As sharing posts is incredibly easy, your expertise can reach a larger and larger audience through a simple click. This not only benefits clinicians who are learning about advancements in the field, but posting your work on social media can also increase your name recognition—creating more opportunities for speaking, writing, and lecturing.
