March Madness Ideas for Dental & Orthodontic Offices


The NCAA men’s basketball tournament is an exciting time of the year! It’s also an awesome opportunity to do some marketing to both dental offices and to your patients! Check out some awesome March Madness ideas below!


Online Bracket Contest

This one is pretty straightforward – start a bracket pool online and invite all of your patients to join in. You can also do a separate bracket pool for referring dental offices and staff. This is a fun and free way to get A LOT of people involved! You will need to make sure you give out the password to participants to join your online bracket pool (if needed). Bonus: have a great prize giveaway at the end like this one from 21st Century Dental & Sleep Center!


On Paper Bracket Contest

Same contest as above, but have the participants write down their picks. Collect all of the brackets and display in your office!
