HOOVER, AL – Perrigo Dental Care, a leading provider in cosmetic dentistry, recently began distributing a monthly newsletter filled with oral health tips and news about the practice.
Dr. Lucas Perrigo, owner of Perrigo Dental Care, said the office plans to create and distribute the newsletter every month as a direct mailer to its patients. He said the newsletter will include the most recent news about the practice, thank you sections for referrals, humorous stories from the staff and articles from Dr. Perrigo.
“This is the first newsletter we have put together, and we’re very excited to share the news about our practice and better inform our patients about our events and upcoming patient specials,” Dr. Perrigo said. “With a website and now the monthly newsletter, we feel we can reach patients better than ever before.”
The first newsletter was distributed this month, and Dr. Perrigo said he hopes to use the newsletter to connect with more of his patients who do not have regular access to a computer or the Internet.
“Patients comment all the time how they would like to see a newsletter from our office,” Dr. Perrigo said. “We’re excited about this new opportunity for us to communicate more effectively with our existing patients.”
