One of the best ways to improve your dental practice is consistently seeking out new trends and ideas. Fortunately, there are several places online that provide content to dentists looking for innovative insights in the dentistry space.

Several dental practitioners and experts produce blogs that allow professionals to stay current in best practices while offering suggestions that help enhance dental services. Here are a few you should check out:

1. The Daily Grind

This site features a collection of blogs from members of the Academy of General Dentistry. Their mission is to provide readers with topics focused on not only effectively managing a dental practice, but also how to balance that with life outside of work.

Aside from blogs, the site also features social media links, online resources and contact information. It is also easy to look through blog posts from the past (2008 to present).

2. The Queen of Dental Hygiene

Dental hygiene has royalty? Who knew?

The queen in question is Barbara Tritz, RDH, BS, MSB, and her blog covers everything from tooth decay to myofunctional therapy. It has been online since 2014, and you can easily contact Tritz or sign up for her newsletter.

3. Inspired Hygiene

Ready to be inspired? This blog comes from a group of professionals who want to help dentists and their practices. Their team consists dental professionals with more than 110 years of combined experience.

This blog site features coaching, training, video content, events, products and more.

4. Go Ask Fred

It's one thing to read a blog about procedure strategies and best practices, but what about marketing your services? Fred Joyal's blog is all about that. He was one of the founders and the CEO (for 20 years) of 1-800-Dentist, and his combination of big agency knowledge and dental industry experience fuel his advice for dentists and their staff.

Joyal has been sharing his knowledge through blogs, videos, speeches and books. He believes there is a marketing element in everything you do as a dental practice, and it either increases or decreases acceptance.

5. New Dentist Now

Yes, there is a resource for new dentists that are entering the field right out of college. In fact, this blog is also a great resource for aspiring dentists that are still working to finish school. It comes from the American Dental Association's New Dentist Community.

This blog provides a comprehensive selection of topics and resources on social media, patient advice, sales, office environments, marketing, science, policy and more.

6. Seasons of Smiles

Sometimes you don't need a blog to give you direct advice. Instead, you may want to look at how other practices share content and engage their patients online.

Seasons of Smiles is a dental practice in Maine, and their blog not only posts about dental practice strategies, but it also shares dental advice for patients.

There are obviously many more blogs and dental content available online. These are just some examples to help inspire you to take advantage of them.

With some simple searches and research, you'll find dental podcasts, videos and blogs that can provide you with plenty of meaningful ideas. Plus, you can also follow many of the content producers and experts on social media. Even the smallest piece of advice could make a major impact on your dental practice.
