Perfectly blended dental marketing from Milkshake

What’s behind Milkshake dental marketing?

Milkshake is an award-winning, full-service marketing agency that enables dental practices and laboratories to grow and flourish. We started life as part of Manan Ltd, a leading marketing agency for global dental suppliers (NSK, Straumann and Henry Schein, to name a few) – and though we continue to work closely together, we’re now a standalone operation, forging our own unique path in dental marketing.

Our joint offices are a hub for creative minds who collaborate with some of the most experienced marketers in dentistry. It’s that combination of industry expertise and hungry talent that provides us with a unique understanding of the dental world – so we can communicate as effectively with dental professionals as with prospective patients.

Whatever you require, be it a helping hand with your website, tackling the elusive world of social media and digital advertising, creating an engaging newsletter or simply printing up a new brochure, our in-house team has the experience and flair to make clients filter out the noise and tune in to your message. Best of all, our industry know-how means we can do all this with minimal input from you, freeing you up to focus on what you do best – teeth!
