The month of May brings many wonderful opportunities to reach out to more people in the community. Here is why:
Teacher Appreciation Week: May 6-12
National Nurses Week: May 6-12
National Hospital Week: May 6-12
National Police Week: May 13-19
This is a great opportunity for dental offices to reach out to the teachers, nurses, and police officers in their community.
How can you reach out to them? Here are a few ideas for you:
First, let’s start with any of your patients that are teachers, nurses, or police officers.
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 patients that are teachers/nurses/police officers when they come in for their dental appointment during the month of May.
See my Pinterest Board for a ton of ideas: Appreciation Gift Ideas
Second, reach out to the teachers, nurses, and officers in the community that are not “yet” patients at your office.
Host a Favorite Teacher/Nurse/Police Officer Contest. Invite the community to nominate their favorites. The winner receives FREE teeth whitening and a certificate stating they won for the favorite teacher/nurse/officer contest.
You could easily ask for donations from local businesses to add to the winning prize.
Within the medical community, a few special weeks are coming up: National Nurses Week – May 6th -12th/ National Hospital Week: May 6-12 / National Nursing Home Week: 13-20 Use this opportunity to reach out to the nurses at local doctors offices, clinics, hospitals, and nursing homes, etc. using the appreciation ideas as listed above.
