New Year, New Outlook on Dental Health

January 1st, 2017

With the holiday season under wraps, it’s time for a fresh start. New Year’s resolutions kick into high gear this month, so why not encourage your patients to make theirs about dental health? Here are a few tips for getting off to a great start!

Brush, Brush, Brush!
As you know, patients often overlook proper brushing. Working with your patients to ensure they are keeping their teeth in great shape is invaluable. Try challenging patients to a New Year’s Brushing Resolution. Get kids excited to build healthy habits and reward those that keep track of their daily brushing with small prizes the next time they visit!

Knowledge is Power
A great smile begins with patient education. Offering convenient and easy to digest information is key. If your office has an online presence, you can include valuable tips and tricks within your website, in blog posts, and on any social media pages you may have. Office bulletins and simple informational brochures work great, and of course, nothing beats having a conversation with your patients.

Don’t Forget to Floss
While proper brushing is important, a lot of people fail to include regular flossing in their daily routine. Encouraging your patients by showing them the proper technique on friendly characters or in an education station is a great way to make patients feel comfortable! Providing kids with some yummy flavoured floss like mint or cinnamon doesn’t hurt either.

Everyone is Welcome
Regular dental visits are incredibly important to our overall health. Unfortunately, over 100 million Americans fail to see a dentist each year. From basic education and maintenance to problem detection, every visit to the dental office counts. So why not make your patient’s trip an enjoyable experience? Friendly and helpful staff, as well as a themed office environment can help make your patients’ appointments a breeze. With a practice themed by IDS, your patients will be excited for what the New Year brings!

From all of us at IDS, we wish you all the best in the New Year!
