Hope you all are having a fantastic start to 2019!
As always, my wish is for you to have the best months ever, all year-long!
To help you do just that, I’m sharing some Marketing and Practice Management tips & ideas that you can use during the month of February.
(Note: If you’re looking for ideas to promote February’s Children’s Dental Health Month and Give Kids A Smile Day please look to this post: Children’s Dental Health Month & GKAS Day)
February is American Heart Month so Our focus this month is Heart Health.
Heart Health Talking Points:
Dental Health and Heart Disease Are Related -Dental health and heart disease are intricately linked and the cost for 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.
Women’s Heart Week: 1-7 – Focus this week on Women’s Heart Health. Have a special gift for your female patients. Hand out heart-healthy tips for your patients to share w/their friends and family.
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 treatment done.
Have fun with this heart theme!
Here are 3 More Ways To Help Your Team and Patients Smile in February!
Pet Dental Health Month – Share pet dental health tips on your social media sites, ask people to share pictures of their pets on social media, hand out dog treats packaged with your office information. Even if the patient doesn’t have a dog surely they know someone who does…great way to get your office name out there!
National Eating Disorders Awareness Week: 25-3/3 – Educational Opportunity – share on your blog and on your social media pages the impact eating disorders have on your oral health.

For your team: Negative people are the greatest destroyers of self-confidence and self-esteem. Avoid office negativity, it’s toxic and will infect your team – Rather, focus on and share positive experiences. See: How to Have a Happier Team
