It is very important that as a SASO member you have a full, rich listing in the Orthodontist directory.
Why is this so important?
SASO is investing in SEO for the SASO website. This means that in time, searches in Google for keywords associated with orthodontics will result in the SASO website being regularly listed on the 1st page of google. We can expect a sharp increase in traffic to the SASO website of potential patients looking for an orthodontist. If your listing is full and rich it will be a great way to attract new patients to your practice.
How do I create a password to be able to login to the website?
You will notice that there is likely already a listing for you on the new SASO website. This is because all the members on the old website were transferred over to the new site. The old site did not require much information so your listing on the new site will be quite sparse.

Orthodontist Profile Photo
Your profile photo is extremely important. People are extremely visual and will often make a decision based on appearance alone. Please take time to take a professional profile photograph. Please have a read through of this guide on how to take a professional profile picture.
To upload, or change your profile picture, start by removing the current image, if there is one. To do that click the red X on the right side of the image.
Then click where it says add image. This will open a media library. Click on Upload files. This will open up a file manager on your computer where you will be able to browse to your profile pic, select it and upload it to the media library.
Once your profile pic has been uploaded to the media library you need to insert it into the listing. To do this select the profile pic. The selected image will be be marked with a blue tick.
Once selected look to the bottom right of your screen and click “insert into post”.
This will add the new profile picture to your listing.
This is also a super important section. This is where you can share with site visitors key information that you would like them to know. Perhaps you specialise in a particular technique, or you focus on adults, or you have had additional training and education that you would like to highlight. We suggest listing a basic CV and how long you have been practising. You need to provide the information a potential patient needs in order to decide to book an initial consultation with you.
There is allowance for you to list up to 4 practices if you have multiple practices. Please complete all the fields. You will be able to add a practice logo in the same way as you added a profile pic. As long as the practice address is a valid and accepted by google, your practice address will appear as a pin on the google map. This will allow visitors to simply click your address to launch the google maps app with directions to your practice.
Please select the facilities and services that you offer by simply clicking the check box next to the facility that you offer.
Please configure the days and hours that your practice is typically open. Use the “add more” button to load additional days of the week. You have several options where you can either set particular hours or choose an option such as by appointment only.
This is an exciting feature that will add tremendous value to your listing. If you have authored any of the articles posted to the website, you will be able to choose them here. Being the author of a piece of great content on the site is wonderful way to show expertise and build trust with your prospective patients.
