Lincoln, ME -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/15/2015 -- DDSRank, a dental-practice SEO and marketing company, announced that Claudia Jean VanOpdorp has won the company's 2015 dental scholarship. VanOpdorp's essay about how dental work gave her confidence in her smile and made her want to help others particularly impressed the scholarship judges, as did her strong record of academic achievement. The company is now also accepting entries for the 2016 DDSRank dental scholarship, with entries being due by Sept. 30 of next year.
"We had an incredible field of entrants for our dental scholarship this year," DDSRank representative Grace Ruh said, "We were truly impressed by how much passion for dentistry, learning, and giving back to their communities these young people showed. Even compared to these talented and devoted peers, though, Claudia Jean VanOpdorp really impressed us. We're proud to be able to support her as she begins her dental studies, and we look forward to seeing the entries for our 2016 scholarship."
Although clinics that employ many individual dentists are more common today than in the past, the vast majority of dentists in the United States either maintain their own private practices or work in relatively small partnerships. Nearly 70% of all dentists are sole practitioners, according to the American Dental Association, with another 16% or more being partners in joint practices.
That leaves most dentists responsible for either drumming up business for themselves or seeking effective help with this duty. Focusing on dental marketing, DDSRank is a leading partner for dentists looking for more visibility and more patients, providing an array of effective services that specifically target the needs of dentists and their offices.
DDSRank experts take on only one client in any particular dental market, ensuring that the work the company does will produce the greatest possible effect. By conducting a thorough website analysis, as well as taking into account off-site factors like back links and the strengths and weaknesses of competitors, the company's skilled marketers produce real results for dental practice clients. Over time, that translates into more prominent placement in search engine results for valuable, dentistry related terms that deliver potential patients directly to each customer's site.
The DDSRank scholarship for dental students is an outgrowth of the company's determined commitment to the dental industry. High school seniors, college students, and graduate students in the United States who plan to study dentistry or to become dental technicians can find more information about applying for the 2016 scholarship at www.ddsrank.com
