Dental Digital Marketing Agency – Rated Industry’s Best SEO & Marketing Agency by SEO for Growth
As the #1 rated SEO and marketing company for dentists, Kickstart Dental Marketing takes brand exposure and recognition to a whole new level for long-term results. Utilizing industry-leading knowledge and expertise, Kickstart transforms client landing pages into lead generation machines.
Any dental practice can boast about educational degrees and occupational licenses, but the dental world requires a particular approach to truly stand out to prospective patients. See the Kickstart difference and the ways its unique approach helps clients reach their goals.
Seizing Control of Core Brand and Voice
For clients who have yet to solidify a core brand identity, Kickstart will assemble a uniform and consistent strategy so all landing pages speak in complementary ways. Reinforcing uniformity across all pages has several important benefits:
- Increased credibility. Prospective clients will do extensive research to make sure their money goes toward a reliable business that produces good results. By keeping the same aesthetic and message across different pages, Kickstart clients not only show themselves as real companies but also as professionals with savvy communication skills.
- Focused results. Keeping client pages consistent helps to ensure patients end up in the same place: calling or visiting the client for dental care. As a result, you avoid the possibility of patients getting confused and failing to connect to the client.
- A clear sense of identity. Seeing the same colors, visual assets, and written messages reinforces a prospective patient’s perception of the client. This practice also helps patients feel a sense of understanding of the client’s business.
Call it alchemy—Kickstart’s method works. Having delivered impactful results for countless clients, Kickstart is the dental marketing company that makes a difference.
Widespread use of cellphones, computers, and tablets means that patients can find and reach a dental clinic in many ways. This fact also means that a successful marketing plan must encompass every way a patient could find and contact a dentist.
One of the key points of Kickstart’s success lies in its holistic approach to generate leads for clients from several outlets. Other dental SEO companies may talk about boosting search engine rankings, while this represents just one of the things Kickstart does for their clients.
Kickstart clients get to work with personalized teams of marketing experts who will work to build and optimize dental websites, search engine rankings, and social media pages. All of this takes place according to unique marketing plans that target and home in on client goals.
For More Information
Successful marketing campaigns keep existing patients around while attracting new ones, which is exactly what Kickstart Dental Marketing does for its clients. Kickstart earns its place according to this philosophy as the top-rated dental marketing company.
The difference between the #1 marketing company for dentists and others is Kickstart’s ability to create and harness online word of mouth. Clients looking to maximize the potential of their online presence can reach Kickstart Dental Marketing in Denver at (303) 872-6067.

KickStart Dental Marketing Achieves HIPAA Compliance
KickStart Dental Marketing has demonstrated compliance with federal HIPAA regulation by completing Compliancy Group’s proprietary 6-Stage HIPAA Risk Analysis and remediation process.
KickStart Dental Marketing is pleased to announce that it has achieved compliance with the federally mandated standards of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) through the use of Compliancy Group’s proprietary HIPAA methodology, The Guard® compliance tracking software, and HIPAA Seal of Compliance®.
HIPAA is made up of a set of regulatory standards governing the security, privacy, and integrity of sensitive health care data called protected health information (PHI). PHI is any demographic healthcare-related information that can be used to identify a patient. If vendors who service health care clients come into contact with PHI in any way, those vendors must be HIPAA compliant.
“We are extremely excited to be one of the few dental marketing agencies in the country to achieve HIPAA compliance. Our clients and their patient’s security is at the forefront of everything that we do,” says Chris Pistorius, the CEO & Founder of KickStart Dental Marketing.
KickStart Dental Marketing has completed Compliancy Group’s Six Stage Implementation Program, adhering to the necessary regulatory standards outlined in the HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule, HIPAA Breach Notification Rule, HIPAA Omnibus Rule, and HITECH. These standards have been heavily vetted against the letter of the law and meet federal NIST requirements. KickStart Dental Marketing’s good faith effort toward HIPAA compliance through the use of The Guard has been verified by the HIPAA subject matter experts and Compliance Coaches® at Compliancy Group.
The HIPAA Seal of Compliance is issued to organizations that have implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program through the use of The Guard, Compliancy Group’s proprietary compliance tracking solution.
By law, we are literally all in this together
With HIPAA violation fine enforcement up 400% in recent years and series of high-profile breaches and multi-million dollar settlements that drew national attention, the importance of HIPAA compliance for both dental marketing providers (BAs) and their dental clients (CEs) has never been more urgent. To further complicate the matter, a “HIPAA Omnibus Rule” update in 2013 significantly extended the potential liability of non-compliance to business associates. No longer is the case where one can simply argue “we are good to go as long as it’s the other party who’s responsible for compliance”.
The intention of the government is very clear: all parties must be HIPAA compliant in a business relationship that involves the exchange or handling of ePHI. One party’s mishap can bring devastating consequences to the other. It is therefore in a HIPAA-bound healthcare provider’s best interest to choose an IT service provider who is also HIPAA compliant, and vice versa.
Clients and patients are becoming more aware of the requirements of HIPAA compliance and how the regulation protects their personal information. Forward-thinking providers like KickStart Dental Marketing choose the HIPAA Seal of Compliance to differentiate their services.
