Sherman Oaks-based Dental Anywhere Mobile Apps is planning to debut its new social media module which will allow subscribers to promote and grow their social media efforts.

The Dental Anywhere program provides users immediate access to social media programs used by dentists. By downloading the application, users can post reviews at their leisure using a smart phone.

“Social media has become a vital part of marketing any business, and dentistry is no different.” said founder Michael Stein in a prepared statement. “With this module, offices can encourage followings and collect patient testimonials/reviews faster and more frequently than before,”

Dental Anywhere’s line of patient care mobile apps includes Pediatric, Periodontic, Oral Surgery, General, and Orthodontic apps, company officials said. Some of the other modules unique to Dental Anywhere are the interactive Dental Emergency Center, the One-Touch Referral System and the Treatment Planner module which comes complete with pre and post procedural appointment notes.

The application will be unveiled next month at the 2012 CDA Presents Anaheim.
