Dental PR establishes media profile for leading Scottish group

Dental PR agency celebrates a host of coverage for client, Clyde Munro Dental Group

RAPIDLY-growing Scottish dental group, Clyde Munro, is set to double its practices within the year and needed a media presence to match its footprint in the dental industry.

Unearthing a wealth of stories within its patients, staff and head office, we’ve been sharing Clyde Munro’s latest news with the media over the past few months – with some impressive results.

Resident dentist at Clyde Munro’s Torwood Dental practice in Inverness, Jane Patterson was crowned Scottish Dentist of the Year at this year’s Scottish Dental Awards.

Jane’s outstanding credentials – particularly her patient and kind manner with young autistic children – saw her take home the accolade at a glittering ceremony in Glasgow earlier this year.

Outside of work Jane has a pretty jam-packed schedule, finding time to volunteer as part of RNLI’s Kessosk Lifeboat crew, as well as training for and competing in grueiling Iron Man events.

We shared the news of Jane’s well-deserved win with the media and scored a host of coverage, with highlights including:

  • A double page spread in the Belfast Telegraph – perfectly timed for Clyde Munro’s recruitment push in Northern Ireland
  • An article in one of Scotland’s most-read titles, the Daily Record
  • Print and online coverage The Press and Journal
  • A feature in Jane’s local paper back home, the Down Recorder

In total, the story reached over 770, 000 people – placing Clyde Munro’s key messages in front of potential patients and practices.

  • Industry coverage in the Scottish Dental Magazine, Dentistry Review, and
  • An article on top business site, High Growth Scotland
  • A host of shares across Facebook and Twitter

All of this – and more – amounted to over 610,000 opportunities to see the news – putting Clyde Munro’s move firmly on the map.
