Social networks in the Orthodontic world

Social Networks…you can argue for or against them but we all agree that we are exposed to them on a daily basis.  Since it is summer vacation for most of our patients at Kruse Orthodontics, we thought we would take a break from the technical aspects of orthodontics to touch on how we are embracing Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to better stay in touch with our patients.

Kruse Orthodontics social networks presence started about two years ago when we opened a Facebook account.  Many of our patients have participated in contests and shared photos, comments and reviews with us via Facebook.  Our Facebook page can be found at Kruse Orthodontics.  We have recently opened Twitter and Instagram accounts also where photos can be viewed and shared.  Find us on Twitter at Kruse Orthodontics@kruseorthoMI and on Instagram at #kruseorthodontics.  Please check in periodically to follow and share with us.

Kruse Orthodontics is now happy to announce we have stepped up our social network presence again. Our office is participating in a program that encourages our patients to share their experiences here at the office with their friends and family.  We are able to take fun pictures of them in the office and then they are able to share these picture with their social network sites.  Photos taken of our patients are added almost daily to our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages so they are encouraged to visit frequently to see if there are any photos to comment on or share.

We are currently holding a contest through our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts.  Our patients are being asked to submit photos or videos of themselves enjoying the summer.  Please visit our Facebook page for more details if you are interested in entering.  Entries need to be submitted at #summerbracesatkruseorthodontics.  We are encouraging our patients to spend a minute letting us know the fun they are having between their orthodontic appointments.  One winner will be selected from all the entries to be awarded a $100 gift card to Target for back to school purchases.  This contest ends in August so please enter soon.

So, please follow us on the Social Networks and feel free to share your lives with us as we all learn to navigate and enjoy the experiences these networks can offer.
