May 1st – 7th is Teacher Appreciation Week. (Some sources say it’s the May 5th thru 12th, however, it’s usually the first full week of May – Suggestion, check with your local school district to see which week they are celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week.)
This is a great opportunity for dental offices to reach out to the teachers in their community.
How can you do that? Here are a few ideas for you:
First, let’s start with any of your patients that are teachers.
Pull a report with any patients that are school teachers and send “We Appreciate You” cards to them. Unexpected and very much welcomed.
Put together some little thank you gifts to give your teacher patients when they come in for their dental appointment during the month of May. See my Pinterest Board for a ton of ideas: Gift Ideas for School Teachers
Second, reach out to the teachers in the community that are not “yet” patients at your office.
Host a Favorite Teacher Contest. Invite local students to nominate their favorite teacher. Winning teacher gets FREE teeth whitening and a certificate stating they won for the favorite teacher contest. The classroom with the winning teacher gets a gift card for school supplies or pizza/ice cream lunch.
You could easily ask for donations from local businesses to add to the winning teacher’s prize or for their classroom.
National Nurses Day and Week – May 6th -12th. Instead of the teachers and schools, you’ll be reaching out to the nurses at local doctors offices, clinics, and hospitals using the ideas as listed above.
