Local SEO For Dentists & Surgeons


For those seeking standalone Dental SEO services including reports & analysis please visit us at The Dental SEO Guys™.

“I believe every dental practice and surgery practice can be given the chance to prosper by establishing & following SEO best practices for their website and implementing Cutting Edge marketing tools into their practice. I’m passionate about each client’s overall success and have years of SEO marketing experience including dental SEO and SEO for surgeons. I’m a Certified Google Marketing Professional and my marketing company, Cutting Edge, is a Certified Google Ads Manager after years of proven results, marketing performance and practice growth for our clients.


Local SEO for dentists and surgeons.

I’m often referred to as relentless in my local SEO pursuits and strive for better each day in order to keep my dentist and surgeon clients happy & their practice growing and thriving. Customer service and satisfaction are very important to me. You won’t find that level of commitment with a larger SEO firm.

Cutting Edge works with only a few select clients. Keeping clients to a minimum allows us the time required to truly work full time for each client every single day. That is what it takes to improve your search rankings and to beat the competition. True SEO for medical practices that lasts and positions your practice for long term growth takes ongoing and consistent daily work for months and years.

We can deliver.


“SEO is like a continuous horse race”

SEO for dentists and SEO for surgeons is a lot like a continuous horse race. You need to establish momentum and keep it. Who is your jockey? How healthy is your horse? Are you even on the track at all? If you don’t maintain momentum your competition will catch you and surpass you.

SEO absolutely must be part of your marketing budget in order to grow your practice. Investing in your medical practice SEO is prudent. The benefits from great SEO will last years and even decades.

At this time we have a small opening in our schedule to add 1 or 2 additional clients. We offer proven SEO services as part of our All-In-One marketing packages for dentists and surgeons. Plus we offer Monthly SEO Campaigns as a standalone service (6 month minimum commitment), One-Time SEO Upgrades and SEO Audits.

I love my work. I have 20 years experience as an SEO specialist and love to share and implement what I have learned with others and see the excitement and smiles on their faces as their local SEO and practice volume jumps to an entirely new level of success. My small team and I are very proud and passionate about each client’s success.”

For the majority of dental & surgery practice websites, this is the rut in which they get caught:

  • Target patients do not easily find your website.
  • Your important specialty procedure pages are lost in millions of search results.
  • Before & after galleries are stale and not updated fast enough.
  • SEO results are not improving (if you know at all).
  • Lack of dedicated experts who improve your website and seo marketing every single day.
  • Many have been with the same web team or marketing person for several years with very little if any transparency, reporting or verifiable progress.
  • One or two competitors are dominating online.
  • You may tinker with the website and marketing yourself but that takes too much time.
  • Organic and referral traffic is not growing.
  • Consults and patients per month are not increasing.
  • Online reviews for your practice are minimal and stagnant.
  • Wasteful feelings about ad spending.
  • Website is not secure (HIPAA Compliant) to ensure privacy and safekeeping of patient communications.

  • Submission of optimized  practice info and links to 60+ popular online directories including Amazon Alexa and Apple. Citation Signals (IYP/aggregator NAP consistency, citation volume, etc.) make up 10.82% of Google’s ranking factors for local map results.
  • Push the correct, consistent location information for your dental or surgery practice to all of these data sources.

Online Reviews & SEO

72% of patients say their first step in finding a new doctor is checking online reviews. Cutting Edge packs dozens of customizable features into one solution to easily aquire patient feedback and online reviews.

Review Signals (Review quantity, review velocity, review diversity, etc.) make up 15.44% of Google’s ranking factors for local map results. Online reviews are more important than ever for boosting your practice.

Cutting Edge Practice Review is an automated platform that starts with just your patient’s first name and email address and does the rest for you. You can also use kiosk mode and pass an iPad to a patient in your office.


Cutting Edge Practice Review Platform for SEO

The patient is asked to rate how likely they are to refer your practice to a friend and to comment on their experience.  This rating process helps form your Net Promoter Score, a key indicator and data point to your practice and patient relationship.

Patients that rate you highly (you set the rating criteria) will then be asked to consider reviewing your practice on one of the important review sites you have selected for your account. Poor patient experiences are captured privately so you can follow-up with the patient to resolve their issue.

Long-term, consistent use of our platform will gain you testimonials, online reviews and better SEO visibility. We also monitor online review sites and alert you to new reviews posted on your practice so you can respond.


Example of star rating in Google results.

Using our review platform sends backend info to Google about your ratings that may display stars in the organic search results. Review ratings with stars in results entice more clicks from targeted patients.

SEO and the Cutting Edge Review Platform are included features in our All-In-One New Website, SEO, Digital Marketing & Cutting Edge Tools for 1 Monthly Price packages.

One-Time SEO

Download Pricing

One-time SEO, as the name suggests, is a one-off service which is comprised of an on-site optimization, and is generally accompanied by several hours of follow-up consulting to explain the work, and provide guidance for the client moving forward. The pricing for this service is highly dependent on the size and complexity of the site. The competitiveness of the market for a business does not come into play, as the work is meant to address any deficiencies in regards to technical, organizational, and contextual nature.

Note: the difference between a one-time SEO service and an SEO audit is that the one-time SEO offering includes hands on work on the website; whereas an SEO site audit is a comprehensive document which details our findings, with directions about how to implement changes and undertake fixes.

When results count, quality doesn’t cost…it pays

Reputable SEO companies have years of experience, trust established with Google, clients that you can call as a reference and modern tools of the SEO trade.

SEO Site Audits

Download Pricing

An SEO audit is similar to one-time SEO; however, it does not include hands-on work on the client’s website; instead, the audit document details the deficiencies of a website, identifies opportunities, and provides a roadmap of how to implement changes and exploit the uncovered opportunities.

Beware of Cheap SEO

There can be a high price for low cost SEO. Cheap SEO can easily get your site banned. We’ve worked with clients in the past whose websites were under Google penalties because they hired a cheap SEO company 5-10 years ago who slapped links all over the world onto questionable sites in an effort to “game Google results”. Problems like this can take many hours to cleanup and weeks or months to disavow the toxic links with a file sent to Google.

If you’ve been the victim of cheap SEO in the past we can help clean it up and get your practice back on the right track. Not sure? We can tell you.
