Content Elf Takes Professional Responsibility Seriously.
Many dentists and other healthcare professionals use a website to outline their expertise, and to introduce their staff members. A website can describe a provider’s research, successes, and practice philosophies. It can be a knowledge base for the public.
To raise their profile, dentists and healthcare providers will wisely hire a writer familiar with search engine optimization (SEO). A wise writer, in turn, knows the provider’s ethical duty to ensure their professional announcements always present information in a truthful and accurate form.
For example, SEO techniques employed in content writing for a dentist’s website must adhere to the American Dental Association’s Principles of Ethics and Code of Professional Conduct, 5.F.6. Web Sites and Search Engine Optimization.
Also important to understand is the HIPAA Privacy Rule, how its standards interact with website and social media content.
Content Elf comports with the standards of your profession when writing social media pieces for your project or practice.
Content Elf has a knack for bringing interesting experiences together to offer exceptional and unique website content. The sample below shows Content Elf in action in a dental blog. This reader-friendly piece includes an easy and fun recipe for a sweet but tooth-friendly snack.

Sweet Snacks That Won’t Promote Tooth Decay
It’s hard to pass up that sweet “impulse buy” in the grocery store. But with a few tips in mind, you can confidently get a little something sweet that won’t sabotage your dental care mission. Let’s look at some delicious options, plus a recipe that contains beneficial—yet delightfully sweet—ingredients.
Did you know that dark chocolate’s bitter taste is associated with theobromine, which can strengthen the teeth’s surface enamel? Naturally, this also prevents staining.
The effect does not apply for milk chocolate, so be sure to pick up the dark bar.
Nuts and Seeds
Trek mix, oatmeal, and dark chocolate bars are sweet snacks that get even better with nuts and seeds. That’s because they are slightly abrasive, and the minerals and vitamins your teeth need are in them. Sesame seeds are high in calcium. So are almonds.
Calcium and vitamin D come naturally in peanuts. Cashews stimulate a saliva flow that supports your mouth’s cleanliness. Walnuts have healthful zinc and magnesium. They’re packed with iron, folic acid, thiamine and niacin, vitamins B6 and E, and potassium too.
Apples and Pears
Now’s the season to sink your teeth into those crunchy apples and juicy pears. The firmer the fruit, the better it is at naturally scrubbing unwanted substances from the teeth.
A crisp apple will also help strengthen gums. A juicy pear will stimulate saliva flow, which has an anti-bacterial effect.
Dates and Raisins
Dates can help strengthen tooth enamel and can ward off biofilm, also known as plaque. The component that does this is fluorine. Raisins too can support dental health. These luscious, little morsels contain phytochemicals that can keep some bacteria off your teeth.
A Recipe That Celebrates Dates and Satisfies Any Sweet Tooth: Pecan Date Bars
These delicious energy snacks are full of nutrients. The whole family will enjoy them, and they’re a breeze to make.
Just place 4 cups of whole, pitted dates and 1 cup of whole pecans into a food processor to chop them up. Add 1/2 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut. Process to combine them, then press the mixture into a baking pan and cut them into squares. Enjoy!
Shredded coconut contains anti-bacterial oils, and iodine to support thyroid health. Pecans contain monounsaturated fats which lower LDL (bad) cholesterol. Pecans have the calcium you’re looking for, plus phosphorus, potassium, vitamin A, several of the B-complex vitamins, and vitamin E. They also offer an excellent source of zinc.
Dates offer magnesium for bone health, and more potassium per ounce than bananas! Potassium supports the nervous system and muscle function. If you’re concerned about calories, be assured that the potassium in dates also promotes efficient metabolism, so adding dates to your diet is an overall win.
