We’re always looking for ways to keep things fresh & fun in the office. Exceeding your patient’s expectations will help keep them loyal to your office. Here are some fun idea’s for October – I know a lot of offices are focusing on Candy Buy Back’s & Breast Cancer Awareness so I will share some ideas for those events and some other ideas just in case you’re looking for something a little extra to exceed patient expectations. (some can simply be used for Facebook/Twitter/Blog Posts. ) 

Are you ready? Here are your ideas for October…

Breast Cancer Awareness Month ~

 You’ll want to work together as a team to decide how you will promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month and where your donations will be sent to (ie: Susan G. Komen).

 Here are some ideas to get you started…

 Website & Social Media sites –  post pictures of the team all wearing pink.

Collect Donations from your patients and/or Donate a portion of your production or product sales to breast cancer research – 

   There are so many ways to show your support for Breast Cancer Awareness – If you would like me to  create a Breast Cancer Awareness campaign for your office that includes: Ideas for special offers, patient giveaways/drawings, employee contests, community involvement, cross marketing with local businesses and recare/incomplete treatment scripting, please contact me today at bhaydenconsulting@gmail.com

For the Candy Buy Back:


  •   Collect candy in-office. Open to the public. 

Or you can do this,

  • Team up w/local school(s) and set up collection bins in each classroom where the kids can bring in their candy and the classroom with the most candy wins a cash/gift card  for the classroom and you can have drawings for prizes.    

Here are 3 More Ways to Help your Patients and Team Smile in October!

October is:
Apple Month ~ See Apple Month – Dental Marketing Ideas

National Chili Month Warm up Wednesday’s! Every Wednesday have a crock pot full of chili for your patients to enjoy. Be sure to include all the yummy topping and recipe cards.

National Orthodontic Health Month ~ Use this as an opportunity to promote Invisalign. This time of year people are thinking about gift ideas and want to get their smile camera-ready for the holiday parties.
