Dental Office Marketing, Practice Growth, Social Media Content Tips and Ideas February 2024

Hello Friends,

February is a great month, full of opportunities to help educate your patients and the community about the importance of healthy smiles.

Here you’ll find several different ways to promote better dental health awareness, exceed your patient’s expectations, and engage with your patients, potential patients, and the community via your social media platforms.

If you’re looking for ideas specifically for Children’s Dental Health Month, you’ll find the link at the end of this post.

Dental Education Ideas & Ways to Exceed Your Patients’ Expectations

February is American Heart Month –

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

Dental health and heart disease are intricately linked. Be good to your heart beginning with good oral health. Prioritizing dental health can only improve overall health and well-being.

Have fun with this heart theme!  Decorate the office and give out little heart-themed gifts.

Patient Gift Idea – Individually wrapped heart-shaped cookies or chocolates with a label that says: “You’re the HEART of our practice. Thank you! “or “We HEART our Patients!”

OR

Gift Basket – Put together a gift basket that your patients can enter for a chance to win during February.  (Basket theme idea: Winter – coffee mugs, hot cocoa, teas, cookies, heart-shaped chocolates, candles, lip balm, cozy blanket, etc.)

National Snack Food Month –

All month long share posts and/or videos with smile healthy snack food ideas on your social media pages. Since we know that food is the way to the hearts of many, why not give away healthy snacks to your patients when they come in for their appointments? Or deliver healthy snacks to local businesses along with office imprinted toothbrushes.

Community & Online Engagement Ideas

Pet Dental Health Month – Share pet dental health tips on your social media sites, and ask people to share pictures of their pets in the comments. Hand out dog treats packaged with your office information. Even if a patient doesn’t have a dog surely, they know someone who does…a great way to get your office name out there!

Toothache Day: 9th – Share on your social media pages why ignoring a toothache is a bad idea.

Through With The Chew: 18-24 / The Great American Spit Out: 22

December 2023 Dental Practice Growth, Marketing, and Social Media Content Ideas

December 2023 Dental Practice Growth, Marketing, and Social Media Content Ideas

Hello Friends,

December is the last month of office opportunities to end 2023 productive and happy! Thankfully. there are plenty of opportunities to plan for a great month.

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!

Practice Owners, 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.

Here are a few dental practice growth, marketing, and social media content tips & ideas…

Patient Appreciation

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.

Referral Thank you – All month long you can give away xylitol fresh breath mints and gum. Most likely many of your patients will be attending holiday/end-of-year parties and this will help them enjoy fresh breath during those
events. “Your Referrals are the Nicest Compli-MINT! – Thank you!”

Cookie Cutter Week: 1-7 – Purchase a variety of cookie cutters to individually package and seal with an office label that says: “Our Patients Are a CUT Above the Rest!”

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.

Appointment Retention – 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.

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.

Dental Leadership, Team Building, and Practice Management Tips and Ideas for November 2023

Dental Leadership, Team Building, and Practice Management Tips and Ideas for November 2023

Hello friends,

Here are the Leadership, Team Building, and Practice Management Reminders and Ideas to help you benefit from a great and productive month!

Leadership Ideas

Accountability – Hold each employee accountable to uphold the same high standards of performance and attitudes.  It’s been said that “what you allow you encourage.” Once you make the decision to no longer tolerate or allow poor behavior and attitudes in your practice, you’ll breathe a huge sigh of relief and the rest of your employees will know just how much you care and appreciate them.

November is Gratitude Month – Gratitude helps to strengthen and motivate your team, encouraging employee loyalty and engagement. Don’t assume they know that you appreciate them just because you give them a paycheck every week. Show them by your words and actions that you value and appreciate their contributions to the success of the practice. For several ways to do this, visit here: Why Gratitude Matters

Team Appreciation Ideas

World Kindness Week: 12th – 18th AND Random Acts of Kindness Friday: 24th – Time to spread some kindness! – Surprise your team with a random act of kindness.

Practice Management Ideas & Reminders

Small Business Saturday: 25th – Use this day (or all month long) to showcase or spotlight a few small local businesses on your Instagram & Facebook pages. Be sure to TAG the business in your post. It would be great if you could get pictures of the business to share with the post. This is an excellent way for you and your team to engage with local businesses and build (or strengthen) relationships.

Daylight Saving Time Ends: 5th (First Sunday) (Turn Back 1 Hour  @2:00 AM)

Treatment Plans and Financial Arrangements – Every patient that has an appt. scheduled with the doctor for treatment must have a copy of their treatment plan AND a financial agreement before the appt. DON’T ASSUME that the patient is OK with their financial responsibility simply because you gave them a copy of their treatment plan and they didn’t question the cost.  What often happens is they say OK and schedule and then will no-show or cancel at the last minute.

End-of-Year Dental Insurance Benefits (or HSA/FSA) Use it or Lose it Reminders – There is still time to schedule more appointments. Have you followed up with a call(s), texts, and letters to your patients who haven’t responded to your reminder emails?

Practice Owners – 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 discover areas of opportunity for your practice … please feel free to reach out to me to schedule a complimentary, no-obligation coaching call at bhaydenconsulting@gmail.com. (Plan now to smile more in 2024)
