Dental Office Marketing and Practice Growth Ideas for January 2023

Hello Friends,

What are you doing this month to exceed your patients’ expectations, attract more new patients, have more fun at work, and build relationships within your community?

You’ll never plow a field by turning it over in your mind. ~ Irish Proverb

Doctors, if you 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.

Here are some practice growth & marketing ideas that you can easily implement in your office

January is National Hot Tea Month. Once again, I am sharing this idea because it is always appreciated by your patients and a little something extra that doesn’t cost a lot. (Remember, you want to exceed expectations, and doing these extra things on top of delivering excellent care and experiences is what gets your patients talking about you to others.)

Gift idea for your Patients: Give away packets of green tea that have a label on them saying “Our Patients are TEA-riffic!”

Service/Treatment Feature: Desensitizing Agents. Many people experience tooth sensitivity while drinking hot beverages. This is a good idea to offer treatments to help reduce or eliminate that sensitivity.

Educational IdeaI’m Not Going to Take It Anymore Day: Jan. 7th – Help your patients to see that they don’t have to take their Crowded Teeth, Yellow Teeth, Bad Breath, Sensitive Teeth, Loose Dentures, Snoring, or Headaches, anymore!  You can help them!

Referring Doctors or Local Business Appreciation Gift Idea

Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day: 30th- Deliver Stress Relief Kits (i.e.: Squares of bubble wrap and chocolates) to local “high stress” businesses/offices. Such as police stations, doctors’ offices, schools, any business that caters to kids (haha), etc.  – most people enjoy some bubble wrap popping. 

Social Media Content Ideas to Boost Engagement During the month of January

International Quality of Life Month

National Soup Month

Sugar Awareness Week: 15-21

Cigarettes Are Hazardous To Your Health Day: 11th

National Bagel Day: 15th

Hello Friends,

The New Year is just around the corner! Where are you at with your practice growth goals for this year?

How do you want to end this year? What do you want November and December to look like? These ideas that I am sharing for November WILL (when implemented) help you attract more new patients, build relationships within the community, as well as exceed your current patients’ expectations. 

November 2022, Practice Growth (Marketing) Tips & Ideas

Patient & Community Educational Ideas:

National Alzheimer’s Disease Month – The bacteria that cause gum disease are associated with the development of Alzheimer’s.

November is Diabetes Month – All month-long share posts on your social media platforms regarding the importance of regular preventive dental visits to the dentist. When you have diabetes, high blood sugar can take a toll on your entire body — including your teeth and gums.

Great American Smokeout: 17th (Dangers of smoking, chewing, and vaping)

Marketing Tips & Ideas

Monthly Theme Idea: Gratitude (November is National Gratitude Month)

For your patients: Invite your patients to share what they’re grateful for (turn it into fall decorations by having them fill out fall leaves that you hang on the wall.)

For the community: Visit local businesses with a gift and a note of gratitude for what they do for the community. Or each week feature a local business on your FB/IG pages that you are grateful for.

Reviews/Recommendations – Set a goal to get a certain number of reviews/recommendations to your Facebook and Google pages during the month of November.

Doctors, if you 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.

Dental Marketing and Practice Growth Ideas September 2022

Dental Marketing and Practice Growth Ideas September 2022

Hello Friends,

For many dental offices, September can be a slower month. Even for some of the offices that start the month with a full schedule report that as the month progresses the schedule tends to fall apart. There could be many different reasons why this happens every September. Perhaps for some, it is because families are still adjusting to the back-to-school schedules and don’t want to bother adding a visit to the dentist to their already too-hectic days or it could be because you and your team expect September to be a slow month and that there isn’t anything you can do about it. Whatever the reason, it hurts to have holes in the schedule. Yet, I have some offices that tell me September is always a great month for the schedules and production. I want you all to have that experience – full, healthy, and productive schedules.

The marketing (growth) ideas that I am sharing with you for September will help you reactivate and reappoint patients, attract more new patients, build relationships within the community, as well as exceed your current patients’ expectations. With the ultimate goal of helping you to have more fun and less stress at work.

September 2022 Dental Marketing and Practice Growth Tips & Ideas

Theme: Fall in Love with a Beautiful & Healthy Smile

Focus: Preventive & Cosmetic Services

Giving-Away – Drawing for a Fall-Themed Gift Basket / Patients can enter the drawing by leaving a review on Google and/or Facebook, referring their friends & family, and for coming in for their appts in September.

For offices that offer Clear Aligners/ Invisalign: September is Self-Improvement Month – “If you’re an adult who has been putting off having your teeth straightened because you don’t want to endure the discomfort and the unsightly metal construction of traditional braces, we’re pleased to offer clear aligners – an “invisible” orthodontic alternative.”

Local Business Marketing (Relationship Building) Opportunity: 

September is National Honey Month: Give away little jars of honey with a label or tag that says, for example, “Thank you for Bee-ing an Awesome Neighbor!” or “Our Neighbors are Sweet as Honey!”

Here are a couple of examples… (From King Dental and Dr. Bruyere’s office)

Doctors, if you 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… please feel free to reach out to me to schedule a complimentary, no-obligation coaching call at bhaydenconsulting@gmail.com.

September is National Fruit & Veggie Month – You could do a quick Facebook live video and/or post content to your social media platforms all about Nutritious School Snack Options. Perhaps, you could even create a cute, simple hand-out for your patients with a list of nutritious snack options and surprisingly unhealthy snacks.

Social Media Post Ideas to Improve Engagement during the month of September – what do your Facebook, Instagram, and Google pages look like? If you’re not keeping them up to date with fresh photos and content you’re missing out on some great opportunities to engage with your active patients, your inactive patients, and your potential patients in the community.

Dental Office Appreciation Ideas for Teachers, Nurses, and Police Officers during May 2022

Dental Office Appreciation Ideas for Teachers, Nurses, and Police Officers during May 2022

Hello Friends,

The month of May brings many wonderful opportunities to reach out to and build relationships and show our appreciation to more people in the community. Here is why:

During the month of May you have:

Teacher Appreciation Week: 2nd – 6th

National Nurses Day and Week: 6th -12th  

National Hospital Week: 8th – 14th

National Nursing Home Week8th -14th

National Police Week:  15th -21st

We don’t need a “reason” to celebrate and aknowledge our hard-working and awesome teachers, nurses, and police officers however the month of May gives us that extra boost to do so. Don’t let this great opportunity and privilege to reach out to the teachers, nurses, and police officers in your community pass you by.

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.

Run a report with any patients that are school teachers, nurses, and police officers 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 and promote it via your social media platforms. Invite the community to nominate (TAG) their favorites. The winner receives FREE teeth whitening (or another special offer), a gift card to a local business, and a certificate stating they won (your office name) for the favorite teacher/nurse/police officer contest in your community.

You could easily ask for donations of prizes or gift cards from local businesses to add to the winning prize.

Deliver treats and/or toothbrush bags to your local schools, hospitals, doctors’ offices, fire station, and/or police stations.

At the very least you can use your social media platforms to show your love and appreciation for these special and hard-working folks in the community.

There are so many ways to celebrate teacher appreciation, police officers, and nurses’ week in your dental office.  

If you appreciated these complimentary ideas – I would love for you to please leave me a review/recommendation here on GOOGLE and/or FACEBOOK.

Wishing you all a very happy, healthy, and productive Spring!
