You’ve setup your dental practice in your city and now you’re looking for a dental WordPress theme to get online so people can find you when they search for a dentist in their area. Follow these five steps to can get your dental practice online quickly and painlessly in no time.

1. Setup Hosting

First, you’ll need to setup web hosting for your website. A web hosting company takes care of setting up the servers where all your website files and images are stored. You can choose from several different hosting providers out there. We have also partnered with several providers who do a great job hosting WordPress sites.

2. Pick a Domain Name

If you don’t already have a domain name, now is the time to get one. You want to stick to shorter names that are related to your dentistry practice if you can. It can be difficult to get a domain name since many of the common worded domains are already taken, but just keep playing with the spelling to find one that works for you.

To get your domain, you have to go through a registrar like Godaddy or Network Solutions. This service is a yearly fee that ranges between $7-35/year. Since you’re setting up your practice for the long haul, we recommend that register your domain for multiple years.

3. Install WordPress

After you get your hosting provider you need to install WordPress on your site. This can be a quick process, but if you are a beginner with WordPress, it can still be a little confusing to do. We’ve made this process easy though.

In fact, if you want to get setup quickly and without any headaches, we’ll provide you with Free WordPress setup when you buy our Bite dental WordPress theme and after you choose from one of the providers on that list. Setup your hosting plan with them and then email us the information and we’ll do all the hard work for you.

Setup your contact page with your phone number, a contact form, and a map to your dentistry and how to get there. Don’t worry, the map adding the map is easy with the Bite theme. Use the About page to set you and your staff apart by sharing your medical credentials.

Add all the current testimonials you’ve received from your current patients under the Testimonials section. When you do that, they can be shown throughout your site to give new visitors an idea of how great your practice is.

After you setup all the pages, consider creating a blog where you can share monthly or weekly updates about the dentistry field. Use commonly asked questions as a source to talk about things. This will help you rank high in the search engines and it will help you answer questions to prospective patients and prove your expertise in dentistry.
