Be part of Denplan’s selfie campaign on Stand M25 at the BDIA Dental Showcase!

Be part of Denplan’s selfie campaign on Stand M25 at the BDIA Dental Showcase!

Denplan has been at the heart of dental care for nearly 30 years and this October we have launched our largest ever national TV campaign, with a TV ad that is being aired for three weeks on a host of popular channels.  You’ll be able to find out lots more about this campaign at Denplan’s Stand (M25) at the BDIA Showcase this week.

In nutshell, the ad plays on todays’ selfie-obsessed culture by using humour to dramatise what happens when people lack confidence about their teeth whilst taking a selfie. Denplan believes it’s a concept that many of us can relate to as Denplan’s research with YouGov revealed just how popular selfies are today… a staggering 5.6 million selfies are taken in an average day by adults online.  Furthermore, nearly three quarters (74%) of adults have worried about how their teeth look in photographs.*

There is a fun interactive element to the ad with the incorporation of a hashtag (#doitforyourselfie) encouraging people to generate and post their own selfie via Twitter, Instagram, or via www.doitforyourselfie.co.uk.  Visitors to the Denplan stand will have the opportunity to take their own selfie and upload it there and then to the doitforyourselfie.co.uk gallery, as there will be an interactive selfie wall on the stand. By uploading a selfie, participants will automatically enter the #doitforyourselfie competition to win £2,000 of UK holiday park gift vouchers and an Iphone 6s**

Richard Ward, Head of marketing at Denplan says: “The ad has moved away from the typical clinical or educational advertisements that could be for any number of dental products. Instead, viewers will see a memorable, impactful ad using humour to engage them. The aim of the ad is to make everyone feel proud of their smile, and to highlight the importance of preventive care and regular dental visits and it encourages patients to seek advice from a Denplan dentist.

“Our intention with the ad is that it will also capitalise on the unique strength of the Denplan consumer brand which will work in partnership with Denplan’s member practices own brands to help them stand out in a competitive market. We believe the ad will provide dentists with the ideal opportunity to talk to their patients about the benefits of joining Denplan and drive more patients into their practices.”

As an example of the marketing support Denplan provides for its member practices, every practice has been sent a #doitforyourselfie pack which contains a range of marketing tools to help practices make the most of the campaign, including some eye catching background posters and a selfie stick so that practice teams can encourage patients to take a “post check-up selfie” and enter the #doitforyourselfie competition.

If you haven’t seen the ad yet, don’t worry as you won’t be able to miss it at the BDIA Showcase!  You can come and view the ad on our stand, where our friendly Denplan consultants will also be available to talk to you about the wide range of services we offer. There will be a private seating area where you can have an in-depth chat with a Denplan consultant.  Please do come along and learn more about our wide range of dental plans for adults and children, which enables patients to spread the cost of their private dental care through a fixed monthly fee. Denplan supports regular attendance and preventive care, reducing the need for clinical intervention and helping patients to maintain healthy teeth and gums for life.

 

*Source: YouGov survey for Denplan. Survey was carried out online with 2077 adults, September 2015. The figures have been weighted and are representative of all UK adults (aged 18+)

** Competition open to Denplan patients and non-Denplan patients aged 18+. Closing date, midnight on the 4th November 2015. Full terms and conditions apply and can be found at denplan.co.uk/selfieterms

Rest your feet on the GDPUK stand! F215

Rest your feet on the GDPUK stand! F215

 

We are proud to say that we will be exhibiting at Dental Showcase next week from Thursday 22nd to Saturday 24th.

The decision to attend was made at short notice so because of that we will be using the space as a meeting point for the GDPUK community. There will be plenty of seats for people to meet, talk and chat all things dentistry, so we look forward to seeing you there. All are welcome on F215.

GDPUK has thrived over the years because it has let dentists from all around the UK discuss issues or problems in a secure environment, without the public looking in. Many lifetime friendships have been formed, plus of course plenty of healthy debate, outrage and mischief created. By not exhibiting in the traditional sense, we think our exhibition stand, will be perfect for members of the dental community to catch up, reminisce or do some business…. Hopefully one or two new friendships will also be formed as well :)

We Look forward to seeing the whole dental community at Showcase, it is always a great event, one that is worthy of everyone's support. See you all next week.

PerioChip® experts at the BDIA Dental Showcase 2015

PerioChip® experts at the BDIA Dental Showcase 2015

The on-stand experts will be at this year’s BDIA Dental Showcase 2015, showing delegates why PerioChip® is a first line treatment for periodontal disease.

 

PerioChip® provides unique adjunctive treatment for periodontitis. After root surface debridement (RSD), PerioChip® is a reliable product to supplement your hard work by controlling bacteria and preventing infection without using antibiotics.

Designed for treating periodontal pockets >5mm, PerioChip® takes only 30 seconds to apply. Once placed, the chip immediately releases a high local concentration of chlorhexidine diglucontate, killing 99% of subgingival pathogenic bacteria over a seven to ten day period.[i] For further peace of mind the antimicrobial effects of PerioChip® continue to suppress bacterial flora for up to 11 weeks enabling the periodontium to stabilise and heal.[ii]

The BDIA Showcase is ideal opportunity to have a practical hands-on demonstration from the PerioChip® team and grab some valuable information to help your patients. Come and see us on stand D115.

The Association of Dental Implantology will be presenting taster sessions of their highly regarded Introduction to Implantology course, and on Friday 23 October, the BSDHT will be hosting a day of special lectures, awards and CPD for their members.

As the UK’s best attended dental trade show, Dental Showcase gives ample opportunity to meet up with friends and colleagues.  Many associations will be holding special events and many more will be exhibiting, so you can discuss the latest developments in your particular field.  Among the associations in attendance will be the Association of Dental Administrators and Managers, the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the British Association of Dental Nurses, Dental Fusion, the National Examining Board for Dental Nurses and the Orthodontic Technicians Association.
