On Giving Tuesday we sent our clients two versions of this artwork (see inset image). The first version was for their Facebook page and Instagram account. The second version was designed to be printed and to write down a way the practice “gives back”—then, we suggested taking a photo for posting on their Facebook pages.

I’ve spoken with some dentists who for years have donated time and tens of thousands of dollars to their community, and they have not said a word about it. I think very highly of dentists like this. BUT, there is a way to talk about the philanthropic efforts of your practice without bragging.

With the dental social marketing idea I mentioned above, here are just a few examples of the things many of our clients posted:
