Heart Health Talking Points: Dental Health and Heart Disease Are Related

Dental health and heart disease are intricately linked and the cost of avoiding advanced periodontal disease or even something as mild as gingivitis may very well prove to be the cause of serious medical problems in the future. Be good to your heart beginning with good oral health.

Tip: If you’re not currently taking your patients’ blood pressure at their appointments… make it a goal to start during the month of February. Many people see their dentist more regularly than a physician and could get an early warning about high blood pressure when getting their teeth cleaned or having other dental treatments done.

Here are a few tips and ideas for February’s Children’s Dental Health Month

Dental Education Via Social Media Platforms – Take advantage of your office’s social media platforms and website to share a variety of fun and educational posts and short videos related to children’s dental health.  This is so easy, and free! Hint: If you get some unexpected open chair time, make a few short dental health videos. Don’t overthink it just have fun.

School Dental Health Presentations – Typically, during Dental Health Month visits are made to the schools by dental office teams, or the children can visit the office for an in-office field trip with their classroom. Also, local libraries are often open to the idea of offering dental health presentations there.

Give Kids a Smile Day – Here are some ideas and tips to help you host a successful Give Kids a Smile Day in your office.

The ADA website has an excellent Give Kids A Smile Toolbox https://www.ada.org/en/public-programs/give-kids-a-smile  It’s loaded with information such as Planning, Promotion, Forms, etc.

January 2023 Dental Practice Management and Leadership Ideas

January 2023 Dental Practice Management and Leadership Ideas

Hello Friends,

Are you looking to make this a great year? If you want different or better results than last year you’ll need to do something different this year. Start now – make your action plan for any wanted and needed improvements to your office including setting your production, collection, treatment, continuing education, new patient, administrative time, and happiness goals for 2023.

Here you’ll find some office management, leadership, and team-building ideas for January.

If you’re looking for dental marketing and additional practice growth ideas for January visit here: Marketing Ideas for January 2023

Leadership and Team Building

“Outstanding leaders go out of the way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.” – Sam Walton

Training – Are you investing in your team by making sure they have proper training and retraining? For example, are you utilizing your practice management software to its full potential? Have you all been “properly” trained on how to use it?

January is Get Organized Month – This is a great time to get rid of any office clutter! Check the closets, cabinets, drawers, and desks for any clutter that can be organized, put away, or tossed. Clutter equals chaos. There is no room for chaos or clutter.

National Bagel Day: 15th – Bring in bagels for breakfast for the team to enjoy during your morning huddle.  

Fun at Work Day: Jan. 27th – Schedule a fun team-building activity, games, or contest for the team. Be sure to share the fun on your social media platforms.

Office Management Ideas

CDT Codes – Have you reviewed the 2023 CDT Code changes, additions, and deletions? If not, I strongly encourage you to make sure you’re up to date with coding and billing correctly.

Insurance Renewals: Many of your patients’ dental insurance maximums renewed on January 1. Phone, text, and/or email your patients with a friendly reminder of their renewed benefits and encourage them to make a reservation to come in for their hygiene wellness visit or to get started on their unscheduled treatment needs with the doctor. Include reminders on your social media pages.

Credit Report – Run your credit report. Check for any errors. Unless your patients have requested that you leave a credit on their account for future treatment – you shouldn’t have credits just sitting there.

What are your practice goals for 2023? I would love the opportunity to work along with you and your team to help you set and exceed your practice goals. If you would like to schedule a no-obligation, complimentary consultation to learn how our coaching program works, please email me at bhaydenconsulting@gmail.com.

Dental Office Marketing and Practice Growth Ideas for January 2023

Dental Office Marketing and Practice Growth Ideas for January 2023

Hello Friends,

What are you doing this month to exceed your patients’ expectations, attract more new patients, have more fun at work, and build relationships within your community?

You’ll never plow a field by turning it over in your mind. ~ Irish Proverb

Doctors, if you would like to grow and improve your dental practice and have wondered what it might be like to work with me and what coaching is all about, or would like to learn what opportunities for improvement exist in your practice... please feel free to reach out to me to schedule a complimentary, no-obligation coaching call at bhaydenconsulting@gmail.com.

Here are some practice growth & marketing ideas that you can easily implement in your office

January is National Hot Tea Month. Once again, I am sharing this idea because it is always appreciated by your patients and a little something extra that doesn’t cost a lot. (Remember, you want to exceed expectations, and doing these extra things on top of delivering excellent care and experiences is what gets your patients talking about you to others.)

Gift idea for your Patients: Give away packets of green tea that have a label on them saying “Our Patients are TEA-riffic!”

Service/Treatment Feature: Desensitizing Agents. Many people experience tooth sensitivity while drinking hot beverages. This is a good idea to offer treatments to help reduce or eliminate that sensitivity.

Educational IdeaI’m Not Going to Take It Anymore Day: Jan. 7th – Help your patients to see that they don’t have to take their Crowded Teeth, Yellow Teeth, Bad Breath, Sensitive Teeth, Loose Dentures, Snoring, or Headaches, anymore!  You can help them!

Referring Doctors or Local Business Appreciation Gift Idea

Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day: 30th- Deliver Stress Relief Kits (i.e.: Squares of bubble wrap and chocolates) to local “high stress” businesses/offices. Such as police stations, doctors’ offices, schools, any business that caters to kids (haha), etc.  – most people enjoy some bubble wrap popping. 

Social Media Content Ideas to Boost Engagement During the month of January

International Quality of Life Month

National Soup Month

Sugar Awareness Week: 15-21

Cigarettes Are Hazardous To Your Health Day: 11th

National Bagel Day: 15th

National Cheese Lovers Day: 20th

Penguin Awareness Day: 20th

Dental Drill Appreciation Day: 26th
