For the past 18 years the Patterson Dental Branch in Connecticut has held their customer apprecation day for all of their Patterson Advantage customers. The day is filled with free CEU's covering all topics from clinical exellence, office management, practice growth, and even equipment maintenence. In addition to the courses, Patterson offers a trade show showcasing their most trusted partners, fantastic food, and team building fun. Each year the attendance has grown, with this year topping over 600 clinicians and office staff.
The theme for this year's customer apprecation day was "Patterson and their Clients, Superheroes saving Lives!" Patterson salespeople and staff dressed up like their favorite superhero with yours truly pictured below.
Besides creating fun and conversation for our customers, the idea was that Patterson and our clients could be superheroes in our everyday lives. By helping patients achieve optimal health through their oral hygiene. But to add to the life saving feats, Patterson added a charitable contribution for the day.
Patterson Dental's Grins for a Goods Cause, Baystate Health's Rays of Hope, and Lisa's Light of Hope were the biggest winners of the day. A portion of all proceeds made at the show were donated these causes.
But, even more exciting than that, our Patterson clients filled the raffle jars to the overflowing in hopes of winning a prize. Better yet, in they may have saved a life. Our customers gave to have their pictures taken with their superhero Patterson sales representative. That photo booth was filled all day. Every dollar spent went directly to the causes.
All in all the charities gained over $4000.00 and Patterson and our customers had a fun educational day.
