Dentists: Negative Online Reviews That Will Make You Smile

Dentists: Negative Online Reviews That Will Make You SmileJoe Plummer might be the unwitting hero to dentists and dental practices everywhere with his viral video series Real Actors Read Yelp.

The videos are the creation of the former TV producer and creator, who claims the idea came to him when he read some Yelp restaurant reviews out loud to his wife while she was driving on their way to dinner.

Plummer told Fast Company, “I am not kidding when I say we had to pull the car over because we were laughing so hard. Something about an angry lobster set us off. For the rest of the trip I continued to find restaurants and read the reviews out loud. By the time we arrived where we were going the idea was born.”

Dentists are no strangers to negative online reviews and what Joe Plummer is producing may put all online reviews in to the right perspective.

Here’s the first 3 videos so far —

It may put the review in a whole new light.

If you think it’s worth a parody by Joe Plummer . . . he is taking suggestions.

Friday Random Video: # 2 Viral Video of 2011 Denver the Guilty DogLooking back on the top viral videos of 2011 on YouTube, the top pet video was “Denver, the guilty dog.”

“Denver” is a golden lab, who was filmed by his owner after eating all the cat treats.

Mali Vujacnic, the owner of Denver, never expected to get such an enormous viral response to the video when he posted it on YouTube, but with the video surpassing 15 million views, he started selling t-shirts and created a Facebook page for Denver.

Imagine if Denver was the mascot for a dental practice when this video was filmed.  Talk about a dental marketing dream-come-true!  Instead, we are left with enjoying his guilty dog face. SIGH.

Dental Humor: Tim Conway as the Dentist (video)

tim conway the dentistTim Conway is probably best known for his appearances on The Carol Burnett Show where he was known to use unexpected humorous tricks in an attempt to make his fellow actors fall out of character and burst into laughter.

One example, is the following sketch where Tim Conway and Harvey Korman are at the dentist office, and Conway is the dentist.

Conway sticks his hand with Novocaine and realizes his hand has gone completely numb. He then attempts to hang forceps from his fingers, which causes Korman to begin to break character.

From this point on all Harvey Korman is trying to do is stop his own laughter.

Such incidents were so prevalent on the show that whenever Tim Conway did a sketch with Harvey Korman, the rest of the cast members would place bets on how long it would take for Korman to start laughing uncontrollably.

Racy Dental Marketing Video: UK Uses Sex, Blood and Vampires

dental marketing vampire video postIn the UK, the National Health Service has released a racy — even somewhat shocking — new dental marketing campaign designed to encourage more young people to visit their dentist.

The video campaign is inspired by the popular vampire franchise Twilight in the hopes of motivating young people (mostly young men) to make an appointment with their dentist.

The video titled, Want a Dentist after Dark is directed at young men in NHS Portsmouth, an area which has poor record of dental care.

Now we want to warn you it gets a little steamy, but stay with the video until the end –

What do you think? Will this get the message across to young men to visit the dentist? Leave a comment and let us know your thoughts!
