Yonge Eglinton Dental


A warm and professional dental practice, they were driven from their needs to create a website that could reflect the same to their clients online. Stepping into the practice, the gracious greetings by the sociable staff and the contemporary yet comfortable interior design all contribute to the welcoming feeling that Yonge Eglinton represents.

To help show how Yonge Eglinton Dental is indeed a different dental practice, Kobayashi Online really wanted to take a further and brought in documentary photographer Mike from Day of the Art Weddings to provide authentic documentary style photography. A sharp counterpoint to the standard stock photography found on most dental websites. Some of his photos are featured in the large sliding banner, greeting visitors who land on the home page with a strong focal point.

At Kobayashi Online, we understand what it means to be Online Friendly, so to improve user experience and facilitate content management, we brushed off the spotty small elements of the old site and implemented the WordPress platform as a basis for the redesign. By using WordPress, Yonge Eglinton Dental will be able to update content to both their blog and news pages easily and pain-free.

With emphasis on creating an inviting and professional interface, the Kobayashi Online creative team designed a custom theme with focus on warmth, professionalism and convenience while keeping a classy, modern, and welcoming tone. The design features a large sliding banner on the homepage, highlighting some of the bright and exultant experiences that a prospective patient might have. The new site is also entirely responsive (meaning it adapts to changing browser sizes).

For people interested in contacting Yonge Eglinton Dental for more information, they can reach the team easily via a form on the Contact Us page made with the Formidable plugin. Furthermore, to ensure the website will be indexed by search engines such as Google, Search Engine Optimization was provided by using the Yoast WordPress SEO plugin.
