What do dippin’ dots, freshly baked cookies and free books have in common? You can get them all at our office this summer!
Read on to see how we connect the dots (see what we did there?):
If you’ve been a patient of ours for a while, you’ve smelled the scent of chocolate chip cookies wafting through the office at least a time or two. We offer these ooey, gooey treats to patients at their appointments because they are a soft, braces-safe food you can eat even if your mouth feels a bit tender from having your braces bonded to your teeth or your arch wires adjusted.
Now we’ve added dippin’ dots to our offerings for the same reason. Not only are these little frozen, flavored ice cream beads a cool treat in hot weather, the coldness probably will feel soothing to your teeth if you’ve just had your braces put on. Dippin’ dots also are a great summertime reward when you complete your treatment and those braces or other appliances come off.
Speaking of summertime, it’s almost here, and we’re sure you’re excited. We’re excited too, because we recently announced our Summer Reading Program. Reading is important, and we want to make sure you continue to read this summer. We’ve filled a bookshelf in our office with books, and we want you to choose a book and read it. If you love the book, keep it. Otherwise, bring it back and select another. We will give you three tokens for every book you read. You can collect tokens all summer long and cash them in for fun gifts, such as movie passes.
Why do we incorporate these fun elements into your orthodontic visits?
“Orthodontic treatment is necessary for our patients, but it also should be fun,” says Dr. Yan Razdolsky. “We’ve seen through the years that patients who look forward to coming to our office for their recheck appointments tend to follow their orthodontic instructions, and their treatment goes faster.”
The day you first get your braces is an exciting day, but we know the next milestone you look forward to is the day those braces come off and a beautiful smile is revealed. Incorporating tasty treats and fun contests and programs you can participate in as you progress through treatment are tools designed to make you feel like you’re part of our office family, and to keep you motivated about your treatment.
“An ideal orthodontic result is what our patients seek, but our patients also remember the little things we do along the way,” Dr. Razdolsky says. “They seem to truly appreciate those little things, and we’re happy to provide them.”
If you’re looking for a Buffalo Grove orthodontics provider for yourself or your children and you want to ensure the treatment experience is fun as well as effective, please call our office for a consultation. We look forward to seeing you soon!
