I must apologize again for posting the marketing ideas so close to the new month. I promise to have October’s ideas to you early as there are many! I have been so busy spending time enjoying these summer months with our kids. I can’t believe they start back to school in two weeks as second & fourth graders! 😦
Speaking of Back-to School …
Dental Marketing Ideas for September
Sports Safety & Healthy Smiles
Feature Mouthguards ~ With football season starting, remind your team to ask parents about getting athletic mouthguards for their children who play sports. You could do promotional pricing for the month on mouthguards.
Another idea: Consider putting up a promo board in your reception area or a flyer on the table about tips for moms & dads when packing school lunches… Most kids don’t brush their teeth after lunch when they’re at school. Parents need to ensure that the foods in their kids’ lunch boxes aren’t promoting tooth decay. List for them healthy school snack/lunch foods & beverages. Also, list foods & beverages that they should avoid. This would also make a great board on your office Pinterest account.
Both the information about mouthguards and healthy school snacks/food make for great social media posts.
Here are 4 more ways to Help your Team and Patients

September 13th – International Chocolate Day. Um, anything chocolate will do on this day. 🙂
