Hello Dental Friends,
Today I will be sharing with you:
Can you believe it? Soon we will be closing out 2013 and welcoming in 2014! As you contemplate your goals for 2014, keep these quotes in mind:
“Don’t be afraid of the space between your dreams and reality. If you can dream it, you can make it so.” – Belva Davis
Wonder what opportunities you pass, unwittingly, because your hands are so busy clasping what you think you have always known. – Mary Anne Radmacher
How does your schedule look for December? Do you have any patients with incomplete treatment or ones that are due/past due in hygiene with remaining insurance benefits that are going to run out at the end of this year? Do what you can to help them see the need and value in scheduling an appointment this month. Some offices invite their patients to take advantage of “today only” special offers. Have fun with it.
.Dental Education & Referral Opportunity:
December is a great month to give your current patients Gift Of Health Certificates to share with their family, friends, neighbors and co-workers.
Print them out on seasonal paper and matching colored envelopes.
Customize your dental health/service message and special offer/invitation.

Here are 3 More Ways to Help Your Patients & Team
Smile in December!
National Write a Business Plan Month – Plan now to make 2014 your Best Year Yet! Meet together as a team to discuss marketing ideas, production & collection goals, new patient goals, continuing education needs/wants, office maintenance/repair/remodel needs. Put your plans down on paper! Be sure to include a plan of action: The Who, What, Where, When & How’s!
National Cookie Day: 4th – Package up a cookie with your office label and a packet of hot chocolate to hand out to your patients on this day or do it for the entire week or month. Your patients will love this sweet treat. A Great way to exceed their expectations.
It’s About Time Week – 25th – 31st: What is it time for? Employee Reviews?, A Team meeting?, To finally let that team member go that has been bringing everyone down?, Stronger Hygiene Continuing Care Protocol?, New Office Equipment?, New Office Uniforms?…. you get the idea 😉
