Perfectly blended dental marketing from Milkshake

What’s behind Milkshake dental marketing?

Milkshake started life as part of Manan Ltd, a specialist dental marketing agency that works primarily with leading dental suppliers such as NSK, Straumann, Henry Schein and many more. Although we still work closely together, we broke away as a separate agency so that Milkshake can focus on helping patient-focused clients, such as dental practices and laboratories. Our continued association is mutually beneficial, as it provides us with a unique perspective and understanding of the dental world, from factories to fillings.

Milkshake may be a young agency, but individual members of the team have over 25 years’ experience in UK dentistry and dental marketing. Combining this with some of the best young talent in the business means we can bring a whole new dimension to dental marketing for your practice.

Whatever you require, be it a helping hand with your website, tackling the elusive world of social media and digital advertising, creating a regular newsletter or simply printing up a new brochure, our team has the knowledge and expertise to guide you through the process … best of all our experience means we require minimum input from you, freeing you up to focus on what you do best – teeth!
