    I'm working on this site (one of my first few sites), and I'm looking for any suggestions on how I can make the pages look more visually appealing.

    Thanks in advance!

    Nice job. My only suggestions are to try a different font colour (I find the black a little heavy), for the block of text top right (PRIYU GUPTA D.D.S.Diplomate, American Board of Periodontology 354 Old Hook Road #201 . Westwood, NJ 07675 . (201) 664-3023), and maybe a different font style for the word Welcome to.

    I would also have a dedicated Contact Us page so if visitors enter via an internal page, they can easily make a booking.

    1. Add some interactive features like image slider.
    2. Change the font, I think it's too old school.
    3. Change the background color, I find it too dull or maybe mix it well with color blue.
    4. Change the layout
    Lastly, you can check these collections for design inspiration

    I agree with fancying up the background a little bit.. otherwise, I like the clean simplicity of the design. are you out of NJ as well?

    Thanks Eric and Squadron. The dentist wanted a simple clean design with this color scheme, but I gotta admit, I think it needs a little something to liven it up some. I'm gonna work on the background.

    BTW Eric, I'm from the Dallas, TX area.

    If you lose the grey in the content area, or at least lighten it up significantly, that would help. That shade of grey is a suicide color. Even if you added some blue to the grey, that could work.

    I'd also lose the stock photo of happy couple with teeth. I have no idea why dentists are so obsessed with stock photos...I get that they show white smiles, but they also look corporate and stuffy.

    That may be your biggest problem with it...you're dealing with dry, corporate, medical material.

    Anybody know how to stop that Google Earth plugin error message for Chrome?

    Could not load Google Earth Plugin

    It seems any page with a Google Map causes an error in Google Chrome (like on this dentist site).

    I tried Googling a solution but it doesn't seem fixable. You'd think Google Chrome would work with Google Maps

    Jimmy,

    Very clean page setup. Ideal for a dentist' website.

    You need to set a font for <ol> <ul> on Periodontal Therapy.

    The one thing I don't like is how dominant gray is. Smothers the website and makes it feel very dull. I think 2:1:1, white:gray:blue would be a better color ratio.

    Also, you might want to put a photo of doctor Priya on the front, on the side of her message. She is pretty and having her photo on the front page would be advantageous.

    -R

    Looks nice. How about reviews? Today, reviews are very important.

    Not really. They haven't been especially relevant since around 2005, when sites such as PayPerReview and the "reputation management" losers came about. Reviews are what testimonials were back in the day, except that a somewhat higher percentage are actually legitimate.

    That, and she's probably a new dentist. She may not even have any "reviews" yet.
