Traditional marketing is the term used when a business uses the old tried-and-true methods of media to advertise. This form of marketing falls under these mediums: broadcast, print, direct mail, outdoor, and on-site/event marketing. Traditional marketing has stayed around because it has proven to be a successful form of advertising. Rather than a potential patient searching for a dentist, you are bringing your practice to the prospective patient.

It is just as important as traditional and online marketing are for acquiring new patients. Marketing does not stop once a new patient sets up their first appointment. You want them to be a loyal patient for a long time.
