DENTAL TRIBUNE The World’s Dental Newspaper · South African Edition March 2014 - Volume 2 no. 1 Page 4 DENTISTRY WORKING WITH THE INTERNET AND TECHNOLOGY Page 7 SYSTEM INITIATIVE RELEASES NEW FINDINGS Photo: Delta Dental Blog Page 9 CHANGES AT WRIGHT-MILLNERS Chris Jenkins Modern Dentistry Media (MDM) has gone live with an improved and revamped website that is more user friendly, aesthetically pleasing and interactive. With the advent of more platforms to access the internet and better internet connections with faster speeds now the norm across the globe, it was paramount for MDM to update their website. MDM owner and publisher, Ursula Jenkins, said, “As MDM has evolved over the years, it was important for our website to reflect our international expansion, as well as the high standard of our publications and services.” Key changes to the website also include allowing internet users access to MDM’s range of publications, archived issues and articles. Readers can now also participate in the CPD programme online. Having a website is pertinent to continually growing business in a world that is becoming more and more technologically developed. Jenkins sees that MDM’s website is key to keeping the doors open to the rest of the world, “We are continually forming new relationships and partnerships internationally - both with the dental profession and the dental industry. Our journals are read in Africa, Australasia, Asia, Europe, Middle East and the United States. The website is often used as a tool for internationals to interact with us.” The website also offers companies, MDM launches new look website institutions and associations the opportunity to advertise their products, services and activities. This is an important new addition to the website. A new feature that will be implemented is one which enables a dental professional who is reading the journal online to click on an advertisement that gets their interest and be automatically re-directed to that company’s website. This makes it easier and quicker for the reader to find out more about the product/s and even make online purchases from the specific company. The upgrading of the website reflects MDM’s commitment to a high level of dentistry. To view the website visit: DT
