We have put together some management tips for you to end the year off right.

We will be welcoming a new year soon.  How do you want to end this year? What do you want November and December to look like?

Are you working in harmony with your mission, vision, and goals for the practice? If not, what is holding you back? If you really want to reach your goals, you must be willing to get uncomfortable enough to implement change. I am here to help.

The management tips and ideas that I am sharing with you today for the month of November WILL help you attract more new patients, build relationships within the community, as well as exceed your current patients’ expectations.  As always, my goal is to also help you all stress less and have more fun at work!

Leadership Tips & Ideas

“A good objective of leadership is to help those who are doing poorly to do well and to help those who are doing well to do even better.”
Jim Rohn

Employee Appreciation:

Use it or Lose it Reminders:
Have you followed up with a call(s) to your patients that haven’t responded to your use it or lose it letters/emails?

Marketing and Management Tips & Ideas

Monthly Theme Idea: Gratitude (November is National Gratitude Month).

For your patients:
Invite your patients to share what they’re grateful for and turn it into fall decorations by having them fill out fall leaves that you hang on the wall.
Or put together a fall-themed gift basket that your patients can enter to win when they check-in on Facebook, follow the office on Instagram, Facebook, etc.

For the community:
Visit local businesses with a gift and a note of gratitude for what they do for the community. Or each week feature a local business on your FB/IG pages that you are grateful for.

Set a goal to get a certain number of reviews/recommendations to your Facebook and Google pages during the month of November.

November is Diabetes Month:
All month-long share posts on your social media platforms regarding the importance of regular preventive dental visits to the dentist. When you have diabetes, high blood sugar can take a toll on your entire body — including your teeth and gums.

Social Media Post Ideas to Improve Engagement during the month of November

3rd: Daylight Savings
8th: X-Ray Day Create a short video about why radiographs are necessary and their safety to share on your office social media pages. 
21st: Great American Smokeout:
