San Mateo County Dental Society (CA)

Marketing Opportunities

Exhibit Space and/or Speaker Sponsorship at 7 general membership meetings typically attended by 75-90 member dentists throughout the year – except our joint fall meeting with MPDS with 250-300 dental professionals in attendance.  See Exhibitor Information for annual schedule, logistics, declining fee structure, and other details.

Display and Classified Advertising in our quarterly newsletter, The Mouthpiece.  We’ve completely revamped The Mouthpiece to be uniquely directed to SMCDS member dentist interests:  with articles and news by, for, and about members, and vendor advertising geared specifically toward their needs and interests.  It’s not the same-old-same-old boring / annoying repeat of articles in every other journal to cross their desks.  Member response to our new format and content directive has been both positive and vocal – hallelujah!

It’s a mountain of local, state, and national dental news arriving daily via email whittled down to manageable bite-size chunks to keep members up-to-date with important issues concerning dentists, staff, their practices, the patients of San Mateo County:  legislative / regulatory updates, emergency calls for action, continuing education opportunities, safety alerts, community outreach opportunities. Details and placement rates

Display Advertising & Professional Services Directory Listing

Business Memberships provide exposure across all venues and media at 50-60% cost savings. The Silver level membership is designed specifically for folks just getting to know us.  For $1,500, strategic use of exhibit tables at general membership meetings, newsletter ads, membership mailing lists, and reduced-cost website listing in our Professional Service Directory as a preferred supplier – gets you / your product / your name in front of our membership - in a very favorable light as a recognized supporter - regularly throughout the year.  The name of the game in our market is hand-to-hand, face-to-face relationships supported by exposure, exposure, exposure.
