If you are a dental professional, March is shaping up to be a great month! March 6 is designated as National Dentist’s Day, the week of March 5 is Dental Assistant Recognition Week and March 20 is World Oral Health Day.

If you’re looking to get in on the excitement, here are some ways you can celebrate all things dental in the month of March.


Show your appreciation for the team

Your team helps create plenty of healthy smiles, so why not give them something to smile about, too? You can never go wrong with something heartfelt and personal: try collecting thank you notes from patients and presenting them to your teammates in a book or binder. You can also express your gratitude by bringing in lunch or buying them presents like flowers or a gift card to their favorite store.


Celebrate your patients at the office

Since there are several dental observances March, why not turn your office into dental celebration central? For adult patients, you can give away special goodie bags that include fun items like toothbrushes, floss and magnets with your practice’s contact information. For the kids, toss in some fun toys like bubbles or stickers. You can even host a raffle for prizes like a gift basket or a free cleaning.


Spotlight teammates on social media

Your dental team works hard to keep your patients healthy, so show them some love on social media! If your practice has a social media presence, showcase your teammates in fun, light-hearted profiles. Not only will it allow you show your appreciation publicly, it will also help make your practice more approachable for current and potential patients.
