August 2023 – Dental Marketing, Social Media Content, and Practice Growth Tips & Ideas
For many parents with school-aged children, August and September can be hectic months preparing for and getting back into the school routine. Help to make the back-to-school season fun (& healthy) for the community and profitable for your dental office.
Theme: Back-to-School with Healthy Smiles!
In-Office & On your Social Media Platforms share Dental Health Tips for Parents,” such as healthy snack and beverage ideas, when to visit the dentist, what to do in a dental emergency, brushing and flossing tips, mouthguard information, sealants information, and more.
Promote special offers just for teachers and students during August.
August is Get Ready for Kindergarten Month – encourage parents to schedule their child’s dental visit before school starts.
Community Engagement Ideas:

Patient Education and Treatment Ideas

Ortho– If you provide orthodontic services to your patients there is a special day in August just for you! National Align Your Teeth Day: August 11th – Great opportunity to showcase the ortho treatment you offer!
Patient Appreciation Idea – Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor’s Porch Night: August 8th –
Give away a zucchini with an attached tag/label with your office name/contact info and a zucchini recipe for patients to take home or share with their neighbors. By the way, this is a super easy way to get your patients talking about you – especially if you give them one to share with their neighbor(s).
