Dental Tips and Ideas for the Month of August 2018

Hello Friends,

While we are still very much enjoying summer, as a mother of two school-aged children (and as of last week a brand new puppy!) I’m forced to start preparing for the Back-to-School season.

However, for your dental practice, this is a great time to educate the community on the importance of good dental health for their children as well as for the teachers.

Here are some ideas to help make the back-to-school season fun for the community and profitable for your dental office.
