Dental Ideas for National Ice Cream Month

Dental Ideas for National Ice Cream Month

Hello Friends,

“Eating Ice Cream Shouldn’t Hurt.” This is your slogan for the month of July. (For more tips and ideas for the month of July, see July Dental Marketing and Practice Management Tips and Ideas )

Why? July is National Ice Cream Month and Close to 50% of American’s suffers from or experiences tooth sensitivity from time to time. It’s safe to say that many of your patients may be suffering from tooth sensitivity or they know someone who does.

Your product/service feature for July is Desensitizing Agents to treat tooth sensitivity.

A marketing plan that requires little time, minimal to no extra cost and will boost production and exceed your patients (and potential patients) expectations!

summer dental ideas

This is what you do:

Offer free ice cream cones to your patients. How will offering free ice cream cones not incur any extra cost to you? Contact a local Ice Cream Shop for some cross-marketing. Ask if they would be willing to donate 4 or more FREE Ice Cream Cone Gift Certificates that you will use during the month of July for a weekly drawing that your patients will enter to win. What a fantastic way to exceed your patients’ expectations with no extra cost to you.

Promotion Ideas

Now you may not have many of your patients speaking up to say they’re suffering from tooth sensitivity when they eat cold treats or drink cold beverages.

Simple fix; team members wear buttons that say: Eating Ice Cream Shouldn’t Hurt

Your patients are sure to ask questions about the buttons. What an easy way to open up a discussion about tooth sensitivity.

Email & Social Media Platforms – Promote this service & educate your patients and potential patients via email and your office social media platforms with sharable content.

Dental Practice Management Tips and Ideas for June

Hello Friends,

Did you catch my dental marketing ideas for June? If not, here is the link  Dental Marketing Tips and Ideas for June.

Now that you have your marketing plans set for June…

Are you looking to boost team morale? Is your dental schedule looking weak? Are you in need of some blog/email topic ideas? I’m here to help!

Dental Practice Management Ideas and Reminders for June

Hygiene Continuing Care/Recare Reminders:

Postcard & Social Media Site Scripting Idea: Summertime is a great time of year and it can also be a busy time of year. We encourage you to remember to take the time to squeeze in your regular dental visit before the summer months fly by. Regular dental visits are so important to your overall health.

More ideas on how to fill the hygiene schedule are found here: Ideas to Fill Holes in the Dental Hygiene Schedule

Incomplete Treatment Reports:

Many insurance companies renewed their maximum on June 1st. Pull a report of any patients due in hygiene or with incomplete treatment that have a June renewal date. Make calls and send letter/text/email that their maximum renewed and encourage them to schedule an appointment.

Blog Topic Ideas:

National Smile Month

National Candy Month

National Dairy Month

National Headache Awareness Week: 3-9th

Men’s Health Week: 11-17th

Say Something Nice Day: 1st – This one is easy, look for opportunities to say something nice to your team. What did we do “right” yesterday? How did we go the extra mile for a patient? Did you notice any team member that did something nice for a patient or another team member?

National Thank God It’s Monday Day: 4th  (First Monday)

If you and your team struggle to “like” Mondays, this might help: How to Love Monday

Recess At Work Day: 21st   

Get outside for a few minutes with your team for some fresh air. If you can’t all get outside, open the windows and turn up the radio.  How about a sweet treat to enjoy during “recess”? (ex: ice cream, frozen drink, etc.)

~ Dental Marketing Ideas for April ~ 

April is National Garden Month –  So let’s think and talk about the month of April and how we can use gardening & spring flowers to market your practice and exceed your patient’s expectations.

 Here are some ideas for you:

Theme: Spring Flowers

Focus: Implants and/or Oral Cancer Screenings (See: April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month Tips and Ideas)

Fun Give Away: Flower Seed Packets w/a label and business card attached.

Flower seed packets can be purchased at most Dollar Stores for around .20 a packet. Great deal!

The labels you attach to the flower seed packets can say:

Your referrals help grow our practice, Thank you!

Our Office Blooms Because of you!

Please enjoy these flowers growing as much as we enjoy your referrals growing our practice.

 Your patients will love these little flower seed packets give-aways! Often times they ask if they can take one for a friend/family member. Of course, they can! This is why you want to make certain the office name & info is on the packet.

For awesome ideas for flower seed packaging/presentation visit my Pinterest board HERE

National Pet Month – People love to talk and brag about their pets. Use this week to ask your friends/patients on your social media sites to post pictures of their pets. Post pictures of your team members pets.

Turn it into a contest: the pet with the most likes wins a special treat. 

Give-away: hand out dog treats packaged with your office information. Even if a patient doesn’t have a dog surely they know someone who does…great way to get your office name out there!

No Housework Day: 7th

Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day: 12

National Garlic Day: 19th

Hygiene Continuing Care/ Recare Opportunity:

Cleaning For A Reason Week: 18-24 – Send out email & text reminders to your patients that are due/past-due for their hygiene visit. Time for their Spring Cleaning! The “reason”? For their health’s sake – or, consider donating a portion of the production to a local charity.

Community Involvement Opportunity:

Community Spirit Days (1-30) – What a great opportunity for your office to get involved in the community. Check your city’s event calendar for events and activities.

Are there any charity/sporting/community events that you and your team can participate in or sponsor?

Be sure to share a variety of local community events on your social media sites. This will encourage your patients to look to your office page to learn what’s going on in the community.

National Dental Hygienist Week (Canada): 11-17

Administrative Professionals Week: 22- 28

National Humor Month / Laugh at Work Week: 1-7 – Find ways to laugh each day at work all week long.

National Fun at Work Day: 5th – Have a silly theme for this day. (For example, Crazy hair, silly socks, decades day, etc.)

So there you have it, some fun & educational ways to help your patients and potential patients smile and exceed their expectations during the month of April. Not to mention, have more fun at work!
