Keurig's Perk Up Your Practice contest slated

Feb. 2, 2010
The DentistryIQ Community will have the chance to vote on the grand prize winner.

Keurig understands that positive staff morale and a pleasant patient experience are keys to a successful dental practice.

Thus Keurig, a leader in gourmet coffee brewing at home and the office, asks: "Could your practice use a perk up?"

You can enter today for the company's "Perk Up Your Practice" Contest!

Just share in 200 words or less how your practice boosts staff morale and the patient experience and why you could benefit from a "perk up." You can also submit up to two photos with your entry. The entry period is from Feb. 2, 2010, until March 31, 2010.

The 10 finalists will be announced on April 5, 2010, and the DentistryIQ Community will have the chance to vote on the grand prize winner. The grand prize winner will be announced the week of May 3, 2010.

Ten finalists will receive a new Keurig B155 Commercial Brewing System for their respective practice. The Keurig B155 is designed for use in dental offices, and includes a new interactive touchscreen interface that allows users to walk through a variety of functions.

The system has an easy-to-fill, removable water reservoir--90 ounces-- and can make up to 18 cups of coffee before needing a refill. A dental practice and its patients can enjoy fresh, gourmet coffee at the touch of a button.

In addition, the 10 finalists will receive free registrations for the dentist and three guests for a 2010 Levin Group Total Practice Seminar of their choice.* The seminars are presented by Dr. Roger Levin, CEO and chairman of Levin Group--a leading international dental consulting company with 25 years of experience.

The B155 uses Keurig's patented K-Cup portion packs that eliminate the grinding of beans, measuring coffee, handling filters, and messy clean-up while brewing a gourmet cup of coffee or tea in less than one minute.

The brewer has more than 200 different coffee, tea, and hot cocoa options from which to choose.

The DentistryIQ community will vote for the Grand Prize Winner, who in addition to receiving a new Keurig B155 Commercial Brewer for the practice, will receive a one-day, inoffice workshop from Levin Group.

The 1Day New Patient Experience workshop is conducted at dental practices by an experienced Levin Group trainer who will show how to roll out the "red carpet" for new patients. The workshop helps teams create and deliver the customer service patients want. Staff members will also receive six continuing education credits from the training.
