If you’re confident a templated design is the best choice for your practice, the next step is picking a template. This is typically the hardest part for dentists — there are so many templates to choose from.
We can bring a bit of clarity and simplicity to the process. Below are the 4 most important things to consider when choosing a template for your dental website.
1. Content Management System (CMS) — We always recommend building your website in WordPress, but many dental website templates are found in Squarespace and Wix. Always double-check that the CMS and template you choose is mobile friendly and can integrate with your practice management system.
2. Content — Is there important information that must be included on the homepage (for example, a section on insurance and financing)? If so, make sure your chosen template offers space in the design for these details.
3. Number of pages — Our dental website templates do not have a page limit, but keep in mind that many other template options do!
4. Non-proprietary — Make sure you will own your website and that the website code is nonproprietary. You should be able to make edits to the site yourself. Plus, even if you’re working with an agency or designer to create your website, you should be able to take it with you/keep it if you ever choose to leave that partnership.
At Delmain, we offer a variety of modern dental website templates and will ask a series of questions to combine our templated page designs into a website that’s uniquely yours.
