The dental clinic, just like any other clinics around, is all white walls, desks, chair, and—exclusive only to the dental clinics—dentist’s chairs. However, the dentist’s chair aside, every clinic is pretty much the same. There are no extra fun services or interesting activities to get your mind of the agony of waiting in line for your turn. So, as a suggestion, here is a list of possible activities that can help a dental clinic deliver something more to its customers.
Available dental products
This is good. You do not only provide dental services. You also help promote a good dental lifestyle. You can provide everything—from toothbrushes and toothpastes to dental floss and mouthwashes. You also have the choice to give these products away for free or sell them for more profit. Personally, I would choose the latter. That will be extra money for your clinic. However, if it is already a big shot dental clinic, they can just give away this stuff for free and count them as part of their marketing strategies. This is a good method, you know. People love free stuff all the time.
Documentaries about dental care
This is a cool and idea. Your dental clinic can be informational and at the same time fun. You can even help educate your customers with dental care and a healthy dental lifestyle. You can do this in different styles. You can have informational graphics pasted on the walls of your clinic. Or, if you have a bigger budget, you can buy television and play documentaries of proper dental care and of perfect teeth. This can either inspire your customers or make them feel insecure enough to take advantage of your services.
What kills boredom more than games? I know that there is technology to ease that boredom. But because technology has been ubiquitous these days, people get bored with them as well. In that note, why not give your customers that old-fashioned excitement of board games? They can enjoy chess, monopoly, and operation. And I know this is not really a board game because there are really no boards included in the actual game, but you can even offer the thrilling game of jenga! This will make you customers feel more comfortable. And the better thing is that this will endear you more to them. They will have a hard time giving up your dental clinic for something else.
I tell you. Nobody can resist ice cream—unless he or she is lactose intolerant of course. But generally, ice is irresistible to the human race. It is like puppies or cute cats on the Internet. You give that ice cream for free and your clinic is on the roll. Of course, you have to give it to appropriate customers—like kids who just had one of their teeth pulled out and need ice cream to numb their gums. When you give it to people with cavity and tartar problems, your clinic will defeat its purpose.
