Case Study: Coyne Dentistry

A Dental Practice Partnership Built on Trust

Coyne Dentistry is a thriving family practice serving the communities of Dayton and Kettering, Ohio. With their practice in operation for more than forty years, Drs Jonathan Coyne, Ryan Platt and Abigail Platt wanted a strong marketing plan that showcased their family-first office culture. Primary goals were attracting new patients within their target demographics of young families, young professionals and retirees, and targeting their local community with strategic, authentic advertising. At the core of their marketing needs was a deep love for the Dayton and Kettering communities, a warm welcome for new and returning patients, and uncompromised professionalism and kindness.

Coyne Dentistry approached our Whiteboard Marketing team with a desire to work alongside us as a marketing partner. They currently utilize our website, SEO, local SEO, social media and reviews, paid advertising and Google Business Profile services. Here’s a closer look into our full-service approach to Coyne Dentistry’s community-focused, family-first practice and key digital marketing needs.



As a family-owned and operated practice, Coyne Dentistry wanted to distinguish their unique practice from corporate dental practices. They asked our team to build an easy-to-navigate site that would increase new patients, highlight the professional team photos, and showcase their friendly office culture. They wanted a clean, timeless site design featuring their brand colors of blue and white. Thanks to the trust built with our team, creating Coyne’s website was an excellent experience for the client and our web designers!

SEO, Google Business Profile, and Local SEO Services


Reviews and easy online recognition were priorities for Coyne Dentistry. Our team of search engine optimization (SEO) and local SEO specialists focused on building their online expertise, authority and trust. Together, we created a website that appealed both to users and search engines like Google and Bing.


  • Manually claiming and optimizing their Google Business Profile (GBP), Bing, Yelp and Healthgrades accounts to make sure all fields are completed correctly and all information matches

  • A massive jump in goal completions and goal conversion rate in the three months following the site relaunch on August 12, 2020

Social and Reviews


While Coyne Dentistry used social media and organic imagery, they were looking for a clear posting and content strategy from our team. The Coyne family is very active in the Dayton area and wanted to use their social media as a space to interact digitally with friends, patients and neighbors.

Our team crafted a strategy that easily demonstrated their family-friendly atmosphere and utilized organic images showing employees caring for patients. Part of our strategy included showcasing the consistent variety of five-star reviews Coyne Dentistry receives each month on their social media channels.


  • A strategic boosting schedule that emphasizes seasonal services and procedures, and demonstrates the family-friendly energy of the practice—To do this, we targeted patients within a defined radius of the practice and met specific demographic details matching their current patient base.
  • Professional photos of Dr Coyne and his staff in action with patients and other team members developing, cultivating and maintaining relationships with Coyne Dentistry’s office staff for easy and clear communication
  • A monthly post standard of strong calls-to-action, designed testimonials, service overviews, and dental tips and celebrations
  • An intentional, step-by-step strategy to build a strong online Facebook and Google reviews presence—To date, we have increased their patient reviews by 63.5%.
