Marketing Programs

Looking for ways to attract new patients? Take a look at the below marketing ideas. Postcards like the samples shown below are an inexpensive way to attract new patients in your area with a special deal while also highlighting your commitment to a charitable cause. One shows an offer to attract new patients and the other a way to book appointments for additional services such as a whitening appointment. We hope these will spark your own creative ideas that not only spark new business but provide additional support for children in need.

Smile Drive

As a dental practice, you have the opportunity to take part in a national awareness-raising program called the America’s ToothFairy Smile Drive. The Smile Drive is a national campaign designed to collect oral care products (toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss and rinse) for at-risk children and teens. The oral care products you collect can be donated to vulnerable children and teens in YOUR community. Dental practices receive recognition on our National Smile Drive Directory and receive access to a Promotional Toolkit that includes a wide array of resources to promote your participation and commitment to children’s oral health. Please consider joining this fun campaign. Our major Smile Drive effort is in February for National Children’s Dental Health Month but you can hold one anytime throughout the year. Learn more here!
