Braces By Dr. Ruth

Amplifying an Orthodontic Practice’s One-of-a-Kind Brand

With the right online presence built by Scorpion, Braces by Dr. Ruth was able to draw more attention to its fun, community-focused practice, which increased patient volume.

An Established Practice Needing More Exposure

In 2000, Dr. Ruth Edmonds opened her own boutique orthodontic practice, Braces by Dr. Ruth, in Nashville, Tennessee. Knowing she wanted her office to stand out, she was intentional about building a strong culture and brand for her practice. To make patients feel welcome, Dr. Ruth set up her office with vibrant colors and artistic decor, and she made sure her staff knew everyone by name. She created a token system to incentivize teens visiting her office to engage in healthy oral care habits. She even held an annual T-shirt design contest in her community.

The result? Just about everyone who heard the name Braces by Dr. Ruth was left with a positive impression. The only problem was that not enough people in Nashville were aware of the practice. Realizing there was unmet potential for bringing more new patients through the door, Dr. Ruth partnered with Scorpion to make her brand more visible online.

Looking for a Reliable Marketing Partner

Prior to signing with Scorpion, Dr. Ruth worked with a number of different website companies. It seemed that every time she hired a company to build her a website, the site quickly became obsolete and she’d have to find someone else to take over. While Dr. Ruth liked the design or her most recent website, it wasn’t mobile-friendly, and it wasn’t as visible in search engines as she wanted it to be. When we brought Dr. Ruth onboard, we got straight to work to improve her website and her online visibility so her practice could benefit from the exposure it deserved.
“We are up by 15% in patient volume and revenue. We always thought we had busy days, but now we have busy full days, and it’s every day. The busyness factor for our practice really reared its head this year.”

More Patients & Constant Support

With an improved digital strategy, Braces by Dr. Ruth now consistently ranks higher in organic search, making it one of the more visible Nashville orthodontic practices online. And the result has been high-quality leads and new patients. 

However, business growth is only part of what keeps Dr. Ruth working with Scorpion. According to Dr. Ruth, “They’re always working behind the scenes and thinking of new strategies we can use to attract more patients from the Internet.”

Dr. Ruth, you have done such an amazing job creating a truly unique orthodontic practice, and we’re happy to help you grow!
