Dental Experts

The Big Buzz team is a tight-knit group of dental marketing experts who have the science of delivering marketing down to a tee. Big Buzz’s Marketing Account Lead will schedule an initial phone call with dentists interested in working with Big Buzz to be sure they are a good match, and will then guide each dentist through a discovery phase until an agreement is made. Once a dentist becomes a client, the Account Management Lead will take them through the full Big Buzz process, beginning with a dedicated project kickoff call to align all expectations, carrying them through all of the major milestones of project delivery. Throughout that process, the Project Management Lead will track measurable goals and coordinate all of the resources needed to deliver only the marketing solutions that meet those goals. The Big Buzz development team – comprised of online marketing strategists, website and graphic designers, and content developers – will create those solutions within the budget and timeframe set from the start. In this way, the experts at Big Buzz deliver the marketing solutions that propel dentists forward.
