Christmas Marketing Ideas for Dental Practices

Christmas Marketing Ideas for Dental Practices


The holidays are here! While Christmas may be a festive time of the year, December is a busy month for many dental practices as patients try to make use of their benefits and get the most out of their insurance before the end of the calendar year. While you may have your hands full, this is also the time to do some creative promotion for your practice–Christmas marketing can be both fun and effective, letting you reach your patients in new ways, bring new patients into your funnel, and remind them all of how important oral health care is. Let’s look at some Christmas marketing ideas for dental practices, and how they can help you grow into the New Year and beyond!

Decorating your office

It can be a fun source of both holiday cheer and creative marketing. If your space allows, outdoor decorations can be especially effective this way–they get the attention of passers-by and may even get you a bit of media coverage if done correctly. In addition to their marketing prowess, holiday decorations also bring holiday cheer and the spirit of Christmas to your office, which is wonderful all on its own.

Decorate your social media and website

Spreading further holiday cheer online and refresh your digital presence with a bit of festive glamor. This gets your audience’s attention–especially if the approach is creative–lets you share visuals of your practice, and increases awareness and sharing of your content. And as with your office decor, it helps celebrate this special season!

Holiday giveaways

Another fun and festive marketing idea for the holiday season. Your giveaway item can be anything–a gift certificate to a local restaurant, or oral health supplies–just make sure it’s promoted and branded accordingly. By getting new folks involved, you can engage with potential patients, raise awareness of your practice and the services you offer, and continue to expand after the holidays are over. 

Reminders about the importance of oral health during the holidays

Both educational for your patients and the community at large while also a good marketing tool for this time of the year. These can range from social media and text message reminders with tips for maintaining oral health over the holidays, to fliers and mailers, to engagement with local media to help spread the message. These marketing techniques do a lot of good for both your current and potential patients and for the future of your practice.

Fundraisers, volunteering, and other ways of helping the less fortunate

Keeping with the spirit of the season and a good way to promote your practice. There are so many options here–you can collect supplies for a local food bank or homeless shelter, volunteer at a local clinic, or just donate to a good cause. It helps a lot right now with the demand for services being so high, and it spreads awareness and goodwill about your practice. 

We hope this list has given you some Christmas marketing ideas for your dental practice–they’re a great way to make the most out of this special time while spreading goodwill and holiday cheer. Your practice both needs and deserves the best possible marketing, and toward that end DentaMarketing is here to help.
