Engaging in community interaction demonstrates your ability to translate words into action. Claiming to be a community-minded business is only truly backed in the ways you show your support for your local community. Showing you care in this way models how you will care for your patients and will help establish your practice as an asset for the local community.
Not only will you show your goodwill, but there is also added value in the visibility you are creating for your business this is not only for future patients but also for business to business. In harder times, small businesses do the heavy lifting in supporting one another.
