School Dental Health Presentations – Typically, during Dental Health Month visits are made to the schools by dental office teams or children visit the office for an in-office field trip. If the Pandemic prevents you from visiting the schools or from them visiting your office, what about offering them a Zoom field trip?
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. As well, they provide guidance for hosting GKAS during the Pandemic.
Advertising/Marketing your Event – Here are just a few ways to do this:
- Social Media Pages ~ Make good use of all your social media platforms to share information about GKAS day with posts and videos.
- TV News ~ Fax & Email a press release.
- Fliers ~ Create fliers for in-office use and to give out to those in your community.
It’s a fun day – exhausting yes, and a little heartbreaking but it feels good to volunteer your time and donate your services to help so many children in the community.
Special Offers during February – Consider having special pricing or promotions on Sealants, Ortho, Fluoride, Mouthguards, etc.
