Leadership Tips ~
February is International Boost Self Esteem Month. For your team: Negative people are the greatest destroyers of self-confidence and self-esteem. Avoid office negativity, it’s toxic and will infect your team – Rather, focus on and share positive experiences. See: How to Have a Happier Team
Practice Management Tips and Ideas ~
National Time Management Month: When was the last time you reviewed all of your office systems and protocols to ensure that you’re using your time efficiently and effectively?
“Either run the day or the day runs you.” – Jim Rohn
Dental Marketing Tips and Ideas ~
February is American Heart Month so Our focus this month is Heart Health.
Heart Health Talking Points:
Dental Health and Heart Disease Are Related -Dental health and heart disease are intricately linked and the cost for 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.
Women’s Heart Week: 1-7 – Focus this week on Women’s Heart Health. Have a special gift for your female patients. Hand out heart-healthy tips for your patients to share w/their friends and family.
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 treatment done.
Have fun with this heart theme!
