It’s important to address the best option first. Responsive design is the concept that a website fits, or responds, to the device that’s accessing the website. If a user is viewing your dental website on an iPhone, the user experience should be different than when viewing on a desktop.
When visiting a website on a mobile device, users are looking for specific information: office hours, directions, services provided. On the other hand, when visiting a website on a desktop, users are researching and looking for more general information. Non-mobile users view more pages and read more thoroughly.
Your website should display the prioritized information easily for mobile viewers. In simple terms, phone numbers and navigation should be easy to access and have big buttons since mobile devices have touch screens.
A major factor in responsive design is how fast your website loads, commonly known as pageload speed. Too often dental websites have large pictures that take too long to download on mobile devices.
Remember, most mobile devices are not on WiFi, but are on cellular networks. Image file size is often ignored and slows the loading of webpages on the device.
When we design websites, responsive design is our top priority. We’ll make sure your website loads fast and displays properly for ALL devices, mobile and non-mobile.
