While we are still very much enjoying summer, as a mother of two school aged children I’m forced to start working on our Back to School to do list. The Back to School season is a great time to market to and educate the community on the importance of good dental health for their children as well as for the teachers.
Which brings me to:
Dental Marketing Ideas for August
What: Back to School With Healthy Smiles!
Target Audience: Teachers and School Aged Children
- Send out a Press Release to the local papers and news stations with Children’s Dental Health Tips for parents. (ie: healthy snack/beverage ideas, visiting the dentist, brushing/flossing tips, mouthguards, sealants, and more.)
- Facebook & Blog Posts with Dental Health Tips for Children.
- Send a Press Release and Social Media Posts focused just on Kindergarten aged children as August is “Get Ready for Kindergarten” month.
If you are interested in having me help your office create a custom “Back to School” campaign that includes ideas for special offers, patient give-aways/drawings, community involvement, cross marketing with local businesses and recare/incomplete treatment scripting, please contact me today at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are 3 More Ways to Help your Team and Patients Smile in August!
Happiness Happens Month ~ Find ways during the month to make your patients and team happier!!
August 8th – Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor’s Porch Night. (I’m serious, it’s a real day!) While you probably don’t want to visit your patient’s homes during the night you can easily have a basket of zucchini at the office for your patient’s to take. Wrap some ribbon and a business card with a zucchini recipe on it for your patients to sneak onto their neighbors porch during the night.
August 16th ~ Hug Your Boss Day! Or just take them to lunch… and if that’s too much simply give them a heartfelt thank you for being such a great boss. I’m confident they will truly appreciate it!
Wishing you all a Very Successful and Happy August!

*I have found that using Send Out Cards for these types of marketing campaigns works very well. If you haven’t yet checked them out, I urge to take a look. www.sendoutcards.com/59727 It is so easy to set up the card campaigns, the cards are impressive and it is inexpensive. Three very good things. 🙂
