Every year, Jan 22nd, is observed as the “Prosthodontist Day”, a proud day for Prosthodontists all around the globe.
What can you expect to do on a day-to-day basis as a prosthodontist?
A typical day for a prosthodontist passes by taking impressions, preparing crowns, fitting the prosthesis, making adjustments, basically designing and fabricating the dental prosthesis. Today is the day we celebrate and proud to be a prosthodontist.
Today gives patients the chance to express gratitude to the prosthodontists who help maintain their oral health.
For Prosthodontists, this Day is an opportunity to drive more appointments. Here, we share several dental marketing ideas to bring prospective and current patients into your practice.
Here are 10 great ideas for your celebration of Prosthodontists Day:
1. Thank your patients
On Prosthodontist Day, You should thank your patients for their trust in you by using this opportunity to strengthen your reputation with them and get to know them better. You will improve retention of your existing patients if you show up for work ready to treat.
2. Share what inspired you to become a Prosthodontist
It’s not every day you get to talk with patients about your career choice. For patients in need of orthodontic treatment, you’ll have a chance to show them that the orthodontist profession is truly more than just braces. In anticipation of Prosthodontists Day, film a video describing your experience as a Prosthodontist. Show them what motivated you to become an orthodontist and why this is your passion. Showcase your personality and how your professional background allows you to better connect with patients and make a lasting impression. According to Statista, 80 percent of internet users watch online video content, making video a great medium to reach new patients.

Encourage your current patients to share their experiences at your dental practice. Patients find positive online reviews of a dental practice highly valuable. If you get a few reviews, you’ll attract more patients to your practice. From my experience, patients are more than twice as likely to post a review for you when you ask them to, so don't let this great opportunity to build a positive online reputation pass you by.
6. Invite your friends to read a book.
A prosthodontist has done a lot of research and hard work to develop the latest technology in dentistry. You can encourage your friends to read a book that tells them about it.
