ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ormco Corporation, a leading manufacturer and provider of advanced orthodontic technology and services, today announced the launch of an enhanced Damon Doctor Locator that now allows orthodontic treatment seeking adults and teens to easily search for and locate a Damon® System provider in their area via the web, web-enabled devices and Facebook. With a clean, simple and intuitive design—complete with location detection technology, social sharing capabilities and access to driving directions—the easy-to-use search tool is powered by cutting-edge web technologies for a fast user experience.
The Damon Doctor Locator, with advanced location detection technology, presents precise search results without the need to input an address or postal zip code. To further ease the process of finding an orthodontist, the Damon Doctor Locator now allows consumers to conveniently share search results and doctor contact information via email, Twitter or Facebook using social sharing buttons. The sharing features embedded within the Damon Doctor Locator are ideal for family members and friends searching on behalf of an individual in need of braces.
"With integration across web, mobile and Facebook platforms, the Damon Doctor Locator is an invaluable tool to help those interested in orthodontic treatment or debating investing in braces better explore the available options and connect directly with a leading, local orthodontist," said Dr. John Graham, D.D.S., M.D. "With a visually appealing interface, the user-friendly tool offers potential patients unmatched ease of use in finding a Damon System provider."
With today's ever-growing e-commerce trends and use of mobile devices for daily activities beyond making phone calls, Ormco has optimized the Damon Doctor Locator for use with smartphones and web-enabled devices. Similarly, the location tool has been updated to seamlessly function within Facebook. Accessible via the Damon System Braces Facebook page, the application gives patients seeking orthodontic treatment an opportunity to search for a Damon System orthodontist without exiting Facebook. The same user-friendly features and share capabilities are accessible via the Damon Doctor Locator mobile site and Facebook application.
"We have an ongoing commitment to help better every patient and potential patients' Damon System treatment experience—from the moment they search for a Damon Doctor, to the day treatment is complete," said Vicente Reynal, president of Ormco. "We've invested in the Damon Doctor Locator to make it easier for both adults and teens to locate a nearby Damon Doctor that fits their orthodontic requirements, even when that information is needed on-the-go."
