NPAW PR Tip: A Picture (With Your Patient) is Worth a 1,000 Words!

SelfieFast, Free, and Fun Social Media Idea for Private Practitioners

A ‘Selfie’ is a type of self-portrait photograph typically taken with a hand-held digital camera or camera phone. Selfies are often associated with social networking. (Wikipedia)

The ACP encourages you to promote your practice by taking a picture or selfie with your patients.

What You Need:

  1. ACP Lab Coat (Order today at Prosthodontics.org)
  2. ACP Media Release Form (Download NPAW PR Toolkit, form on pg. 40)
  3. A smartphone
  4. A smiling patient
  5. Yourself

What to Do:

  1. Identify a patient who wants to pose for a selfie or picture with their prosthodontist.
  2. Most important step: Ask your patient to sign the ACP Media Release Form and note: Patient of Dr. ______ (your name); practice website; address; phone number
  3. Put on your ACP lab coat
  4. Smile with your patient and take the photo
  5. Email the patient approved photo with signed form to media@prosthodontics.org and CC your patient. Make sure to keep a copy of the form in the patient’s file along with the photo for your records.
  6. Ask your patient to share on social media and tag you as their #Prosthodontist. Then you can do the same. Keep it fun!
  7. Upload photo to your website, practice Facebook page, LinkedIn page, Instagram, etc.. Use the #prosthodontist hashtag and tag your patient.

Make it a best practice year-round…now through NPAW and beyond.
