Chris Pistorius, CEO & Founder of KickStart Dental Marketing

Today’s dental world requires a different way of marketing for success. We call it Alchemy – the bringing together of best-in-class marketing strategies to create a whole better than the sum of its parts.


Managing leads for your practice is NOT easy. Our mind-blowing DENTAFLOW system tracks all of this and can even automatically follow-up with new patient leads for you!


With thousands of dental-related searches per day on Google, we can use Google Ads to make sure potential patients notice your brand, consider your offerings, and take action.

next-gen website design

You’re spending money sending traffic to your site. A great website reduces the cost of acquiring patients. We build stunning dental websites that convert and are lightning-fast.

social media & content strategy

We help you produce compelling content that your target demographic will be interested in. This content should not be all about you, but a strategic mix of content.

linkedin advertising

Imagine being able to target people that work for specific local companies. Companies that you know offer particular types of dental insurance to their employees. Lots of opportunities here!


Get personal with one of the world’s most significant communities of 1.6 billion users. No matter what kind of practice you are, you can find your patients here.

seo that does more

Everybody seems to do SEO these days. We have a unique method of doing SEO that increases your practices online exposure, builds your credibility, gets you in the news, and helps show your community pride.

reactivation campaigns

Patient attrition rate is often not given enough attention by many dental practices. It’s easier and more cost effective to put a strategy in place to bring back your existing patient base.

Warning! This is the side effect of us fixing your marketing.

A MODERN dental marketing company FOR TODAY’S WORLD

dental marketing experts

We only work with Dentists & Orthodontists and have been since 2009. We know the lingo, the frustrations, how your competition is growing and we know what works, and what doesn’t.

HIPAA Compliant

Did you know that a dental practice has to protect the information of people even before they become a patient? Even basic info like name, phone, and email has to be protected.


Our services are month-to-month with no long term contracts. We provide the flexibility to add or remove channels as necessary on a monthly basis, so you’ll never have to be locked into a long-term contract.


You can view us as your dedicated marketing department. We only work with one dental practice in each market. We believe that doing otherwise would be a conflict of interest.

big enough to get great results, small enough to provide great service

We are a boutique agency, which means that quality work and driving results are our utmost priority. We were named a Top Dental Marketing Agency in 2020, 2019, and 2018!


A dedicated Client Success Manager who knows you and your project intimately will be ready to answer calls, emails, and you’ll have regularly scheduled meetings depending on your specific needs.
