3 Giveaway Ideas for Dental Offices That Get Results


Favorite Emoji

The team at Hulsey Dentistry got a ton of interaction on this giveaway post by having patients and fans comment with their favorite emoji for a chance to win.

Try to spark conversation with your giveaway, because getting a lot of comments signals Facebook to give the post greater reach. Just asking a simple question about your patients’ and fans’ favorite things is an easy way to get people participating, especially when the topic appeals to young patients!


2 Truths and a Lie

Smile Spot Children’s Dentistry helped followers get to know their team with this trivia game giveaway. It was a huge hit and strengthened relationships. They listed three statements about this team member, two of which were true, and challenged fans to spot the lie for a chance to win!

Getting your team involved will make your giveaway more effective. Train your front desk team member to mention the giveaway to everyone that comes in. Including team members in all of your giveaway photos is also proven to boost engagement.


Win It Wednesday

MT West Dentist does a small giveaway every week. They call it “Win It Wednesday.” It keeps patients and fans coming back to their page and sharing their posts with family and friends.

Choose small prizes that allow you to do more giveaways more often. My Social Practice has helped thousands of dental offices run great giveaways, and we’ve found that even a $10 gift card is enough to catch attention and get people to participate.

When you have fun giveaways on  your page more often, it keeps you top-of-mind with patients and fans. Their regular participation will build your reach with the people most likely to become your new patients.
