Patient Incentives and Rewards

Through the years, we've had all sorts of prizes, games, contests and incentives that add a little more to our awesome patient's visits.  With some of them we have the kids in mind, some we're thinking about the parents, and some are for whole families!  It's gotten so that we have SO MUCH to remember every time you come to our office, it's hard for our team to go over all of them.  Here is a quick run down of everything we offer every day at CVPD.  This list doesn't include special contests or prizes we have periodically, just the things we do every day.:)

Gold Tokens:      These are given to every patient at every visit to our office.  It can be stressful and hard (for little ones especially) to allow us to do what we need to at our office.  We believe in rewarding them for a job well done! These coins can be used at the large bank of prizes right by our front door.  Our machines don't take anything but our gold coins.   

Wooden Nickels:     We like to hand these out at special functions and parades.  They are also given to every patient at every visit, and I think they mostly end up on the floor of your car and in your junk drawer at home.  If parents understood the worth that these have they would be collected and guarded much more carefully!  If you'll look on our rewards page you will find a list of our favorite family-friendly businesses in the valley that offer something for FREE in exchange for your Wooden Nickel. There's a huge variety of possibilities!  If you saved your wooden nickels for a few visits, you could have a whole family night out for nearly free!  Let's look at what a day could look like with a bunch of wooden nickels, shall we?? 

We'll start out with ice skating at the Eccles Ice Center for buy one get one free ice skating and skate rentals.  After skating around for an hour or so, who's hungry?? Let's stop by Lee's and get a free banana! Then head over to the Fun Park where one Wooden Nickel gets you one free activity.  Next, stop by Old Grist Mill for a free cookie! While you're out, why not stop at Joyride Bikes and get your FREE bike reflector?! Sounds like a fun-filled afternoon to me using 5 Wooden Nickels, and that's only a small sampling of the offers that are listed!  Save those nickels!  They're worth it!

Social Media:     Where do you go for a dentist recommendation?  Gone are the days when we opened the yellow pages and just started calling down the list when we needed a new dentist or doctor.  Today, asking for referrals on social media is so easy, and boy, do people looove to share their opinions on the internet!  We recognize that the best referrals come from a friend or loved one.  That's why when you are in our office, if you have a social media account and would like to check in or share your visit with your friends, we would love to reward you!  If your kid totally rocked his visit and is cavity-free, share it on Instagram!  Your kids are crying because they have to LEAVE our office? When does that happen?  That's Chatbook worthy! Tell your friends! Your usually squirmy 4 year old let us take xrays and you still can't believe it, tell the Facebook world!  The only thing that we ask is that you include only pictures of YOUR CHILDREN in your photos.  We respect those who choose not to put their kids on social media. We love what we do and we are proud of the fact that we do it well, so we are honored when you show us a little love in the social media world.  Our office has several social media accounts:  Instagram (@cachevalleypediatricdentistry #cvpdkids), Facebook (Cache Valley Pediatric Dentistry) and Pinterest (Cache Valley Pediatric Dentistry) that are updated regularly.  Connect with us! Here's what we offer in return: for each share on the platform of your choice, we offer either one $5 movie gift card per family OR one Aggie Ice Cream card per child which you can pick up from Melissa at check-out.  Pretty great, right?  Add that to your Wooden Nickel Day and you're golden.

Referrals:   WE LOVE REFERRALS!  As I mentioned before, a referral from a loved one or friend goes a long way.  If you know someone you think could benefit from what we do here at Cache Valley Pediatric Dentistry, send them our way!  Make sure they tell us they were referred by you and you will receive a $10 cash card!  It's just our way of saying 'Thanks' for trusting us to care for your loved ones.

We love you and your kids here at Cache Valley Pediatric Dentistry!  We love the relationships we form and being able to watch families grow.  Thanks for being so great.
