Dental Education Ideas & Ways to Exceed Your Patients’ Expectations
February is American Heart Month –
Heart Health Talking Points: Dental Health and Heart Disease Are Related
Dental health and heart disease are intricately linked. Be good to your heart beginning with good oral health. Prioritizing dental health can only improve overall health and well-being.
Have fun with this heart theme! Decorate the office and give out little heart-themed gifts.
Patient Gift Idea – Individually wrapped heart-shaped cookies or chocolates with a label that says: “You’re the HEART of our practice. Thank you! “or “We HEART our Patients!”
Gift Basket – Put together a gift basket that your patients can enter for a chance to win during February. (Basket theme idea: Winter – coffee mugs, hot cocoa, teas, cookies, heart-shaped chocolates, candles, lip balm, cozy blanket, etc.)
National Snack Food Month –
All month long share posts and/or videos with smile healthy snack food ideas on your social media pages. Since we know that food is the way to the hearts of many, why not give away healthy snacks to your patients when they come in for their appointments? Or deliver healthy snacks to local businesses along with office imprinted toothbrushes.
