Hello Friends,

October is the start of your fourth quarter for the year. It’s your opportunity to make it your best fourth quarter ever. To help you plan for that, today I’m sharing several ideas with you. Ideas that when implemented will keep things fresh and fun in your office. More importantly, they will exceed your patients and potential patients expectations which will allow you to focus on doing what you do best, helping your patients achieve healthy and beautiful smiles. Why? Because exceeding your patients expectations will help keep them loyal to your office.

Here are some fun ideas for October – I know a lot of offices are focusing on Candy Buy Back events 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. 

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 gift card or get a local pizzeria to donate pizza for a classroom pizza party for the winning classroom.

If you desire more help with a candy buy back event for your office, please contact me at bhaydenconsulting@gmail.com for a consultation. I have had the privilege of creating & implementing candy buy back events from start to finish. 

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

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

National Book Month ~ Host a book drive for the local library, schools or families in need.

National Friends of Libraries Week:16-22 See Marketing to your local library – Part 1 and Part 2

National Face Your Fears Day: 11 ~ Opportunity to share what you do to help make dental visits more comfortable for the fearful patient.

I hope you enjoyed these ideas. If you would like additional help to implement any of the ideas that I shared with you today or would like more ideas,  please contact me today.

It is my wish that you all have a wonderful October!
