In real estate, it's location, location, location. 90210 is the most valuable real estate around. So what does the world's most famous zip code have to do with our office? Even though Dr. Wilderman is renowned for the Hollywood smiles he creates, he isn't moving to Hollywood, at least not yet!
In text messaging jargon, the 5 or 6 digit number that you send a text to is called a short code. It's sort of like a phone number to which you send your message. At Artistic Expressions Dentistry, we've adopted the short code 90210 for our use. So what? Why does a dental office need a short code? Why would I text my dental office?
The answers to those questions are simple. Today almost everyone carries a smart phone with them. We don't just use our phones for phone calls any more. We keep track of our emails, take photos and movies, surf the internet, and send and receive text messages, That is where our short code becomes handy. We have new technology in place that allows us to send text messages to our patients who opt-in to our messaging system. A good example of practical use of this technology is sending a confirming text to you reminding you of your upcoming appointment. Our software allows us to schedule a text message to be sent to you, at a time predetermined by you, when you schedule your appointment. It could be sent the day before, an hour before or anytime before the appointment time. How cool is that? A custom reminder to your upcoming visit! Now unfortunately you have no excuse! You can't say the dog ate your appointment card.
To Opt-in to our new messaging system, Simply text TopDentist (not case sensitive) to 90210.
