Hi, I'm Dr. Randy Schmidt, here at Orthodontic Affiliates, and I thought I'd take a moment to explain to you a program we have here for all of our patients. It's called the Orthodontic Affiliates Smile Rewards Program.
With that program, every patient gets this smile rewards credit card with their own named account on it that they keep, so that each time they come in for their visits, they leave with a tally card that has a whole series of points that the patients earn at each of their orthodontic visits, like having clean teeth, wearing the rubber bands well, getting A's on the report cards, getting a good exam and note from their dentist, did well at their six month cleaning.
It's a whole host of different things that the patients can earn points with, and then when they check out at the front desk, they swipe their card in our credit card swiper, where then those points are logged into their own named account on the internet, where they earn dollars and retail points for different various retailers like Target, Starbucks, Best Buy, where they can get retail gift cards and then go make purchases with them.
Then, at the same time, when they check out at the front desk, they're also given a new promotion that we now offer at Orthodontic Affiliates, which is a Refer-A-Friend promotion, and we used to have the patients earn 200 points for the Refer-A-Friend program, we're now offering, from now, 1,000 points for the patients who refer other patients or friend, 1,000 points on their smile reward cards, so that they can earn big bucks with retail gift cards.
People love it, the patients love it, and the programs work real well.
