LEVERAGE THE POWER OF TOP COLLEGE BRANDS TO

Power Your Brand!

Mascot Braces® is not just about the brackets; it’s also about the power of a brand.  Mascot Braces offers geographic exclusivity and branded marketing resources around each college program.  Through this unique opportunity, our teams of non-competing doctors set their practices apart in the communities they serve and gain recognition as the provider of their patients’ favorite Mascot Braces brand.

The Braces:

Mascot Braces are collegiately licensed DesignerBraces with pad shapes that represent the logos of top colleges and universities.  They are manufactured in America to the highest standards of quality for bracket manufacturing in .018 and .022 slots sizes for the upper central teeth only.  As an exclusive provider of a Mascot brand, doctors receive an included allotment of (U1-1) Mascot Braces for their team annually and can access any of the out of state teams with an individual order.

The Marketing:

Patients easily identify with university brands.  Mascot Braces offers accelerated consumer driven marketing leading to profitable new revenue in your practice.  Mascot teams have a dedicated consumer-focused web page that lists and links each of the participating orthodontists, hosts a doctor locator, and boasts an interactive and sharable ‘Design Your Smile’ feature.  Within brand guidelines, partners have full use of Mascot brand logos to easily integrate the team brand with their own brand and current marketing strategies.  Team focused social media and web content are updated seasonally to provide fresh marketing opportunities.

The Exclusivity:

Each Mascot Braces program is developed with a team of non-competing doctors throughout the state in which the college is located.  A five mile exclusivity radius is given to providers around each of their practice locations.  Our ‘no-overlap’ structure guarantees the nearest possible provider is no closer than ten miles away.  Exclusivity and participation for multi-location and out of state practices may vary due to factors including: population densities, geographic locations, and reach of the team brand.

The Profit:

Created as an enhancement for the patient experience, Mascot Braces is a proven revenue generator for our doctors.  This exciting and industry-first program is an opportunity to increase per patient revenue, allowing the brand to work as a catalyst for heightened referrals and annual starts.  The Mascot Braces investment is an all-inclusive two year commitment providing The Braces, The Marketing, and The Exclusivity.
