Heart Health Talking Points: Dental Health and Heart Disease Are Related

Dental health and heart disease are intricately linked and the cost of avoiding advanced periodontal disease or even something as mild as gingivitis may very well prove to be the cause of serious medical problems in the future. Be good to your heart beginning with good oral health.

Tip: If you’re not currently taking your patients’ blood pressure at their appointments… make it a goal to start during the month of February. Many people see their dentist more regularly than a physician and could get an early warning about high blood pressure when getting their teeth cleaned or having other dental treatments done.

Pet Dental Health Month – Share pet dental health tips on your social media sites, ask people to share pictures of their pets on social media, and hand out dog treats packaged with your office information.

Here are a few tips and ideas for February’s Children’s Dental Health Month

Dental Education Via Social Media Platforms – Take advantage of your office’s social media platforms and website to share a variety of fun and educational posts and short videos related to children’s dental health.  This is so easy, and free! Hint: If you get some unexpected open chair time, make a few short dental health videos. Don’t overthink it just have fun.

  • Healthy Lunch/Snack Ideas
  • How much sugar is in your drink or favorite snacks?
  • What to do in a Dental Emergency?
  • Ortho Care While at School
  • Dental Hygiene with Braces
  • Daily Toothbrushing Chart
  • Dental Health Tips (Importance of sealants, fluoride, mouthguards, regular dental visits.)
  • What kind of toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and mouth rinse is best?

Special Offers on Treatment during February – Consider having special pricing or promotions on Sealants, Ortho, Fluoride, Mouthguards, etc.

(Big Ticket) Gift Give Away Ideas – Have a drawing during the month of February for a cool gift basket, gift cards, theme park tickets, etc. that all the kids can enter for a chance to win.

Make their Day – Kids love free stuff! Be sure to do something extra special during February. Upgrade the toy treasure chest with better toys. Additional giveaway ideas, Toothbrushing chart, Imprinted toothpaste squeezers, hand sanitizer, balloons, stickers, etc.

School Dental Health Presentations – Typically, during Dental Health Month visits are made to the schools by dental office teams, or the children can visit the office for an in-office field trip with their classroom. Also, local libraries are often open to the idea of offering dental health presentations there.

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.

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.

Dental Practice Growth and Marketing Ideas for December 2022

Dental Practice Growth and Marketing Ideas for December 2022

Hello Friends,

Wow, I can’t believe we’re already at the end of the year! It doesn’t feel like that long ago that I was sharing practice growth tips and ideas for the start of this year. Where are you at with your practice growth goals for this year?

Doctors, if you are not happy with where your practice is at and would like to grow and improve your dental practice and have wondered what it might be like to work with me and what coaching is all about, or would like to learn what opportunities for improvement exist in your practice... please feel free to reach out to me to schedule a complimentary, no-obligation coaching call at bhaydenconsulting@gmail.com.

The ideas that I am sharing for the month of December when implemented, WILL help you attract more new patients, build relationships within the community, as well as exceed your current patients’ expectations. Get people talking about you! As always, my goal is to also help you all stress-less and have more fun at work!

To encourage patients to keep their scheduled appointments during December, consider having a drawing for a gift basket (ie: filled with cozy winter items & hot cocoa supplies) or a gift card to a local business/restaurant that your patients can enter to win when they come in for their dental appointment before December 23rd.

Patient Appreciation Gift Ideas – Cookie Day: 4th and Hot Cocoa Day: 12th – All month long you can give away individually wrapped cookies with a packet of hot cocoa mix and a tag/label attached that says “Warm Wishes for a Sweet Winter“.

National Hand Washing Awareness Week: 4th-10th

Purchase small bottles of hand sanitizer with your office information on the label.  Give away to your patients during this week or throughout the month.  “Hands down we have the best patients around.”

Travel Toothbrush Bags – Many of your patients travel during the holidays – Surprise them with a small gift for their travels. Put together toothbrush bags that include a toothbrush, floss, toothpaste, and a “what to do in a dental emergency” handout. You could also include other travel-sized items such as lotion, Advil, lip balm, etc.

Gift Certificates: Remember, Gift Certificates/Cards for Teeth Whitening or Dental Treatment should always be available for your patients to purchase as gifts for their loved ones.

Community Involvement: Donations – Open your office as a Drop-Off Location for donations of non-perishable food items or winter gear for families/individuals in need.
