It's important to remember your dentist during the Christmas season of giving and goodwill, especially if he works hard all year to keep your smile sparkling. A wide variety of gift choices are available for that special dentist in your life. Bestow your dentist with pearls in homage to your pearly teeth, or, if you are on a budget, a set of novelty teeth or a dentist-themed toothpick holder will still elicit a festive smile. If you want to be really quirky and creative, give her jewellery made from human teeth or, if you have a bent for craft, turn your own extracted molars into a work of art.
Pearls are a perfect choice for a dentist who goes that extra mile to keep your teeth pearly white. If your dentist is a woman, she may appreciate a pair of pearl earrings, a mother-of-pearl jewellery box or, if you are feeling particularly extravagant, a pearl necklace. Give your male dentist pearl cufflinks. Cultured pearls are relatively affordable but, if you are on a budget, mother-of-pearl jewellery is an attractive and affordable alternative.
Novelty gifts are affordable, but will still bring a smile to your hardworking dentist's face. Give him a set of deluxe chattering teeth, a tooth-shaped toothpick holder, personalised dentist coffee mug or a smiley-face toothbrush holder. She might also appreciate a dental keyring shaped like a tooth or a dental floss gift set in enticing chocolate and cupcake flavours. Such gifts usually cost under £6 but will still make your dentist feel appreciated at Christmas.
Spoil your dentist with a personalised sterling silver toothbrush which, as of 2011, retails for about £82, or help her to stay organised with a dentist business card holder, made from pieces of metal sculpted in the shape of a dentist's chair, retailing for about £50. If your dentist likes to unwind with a glass of wine after a hard day's work, he will appreciate a handcrafted dentist-patient wine bottle holder, made from copper and steel, retailing for about £5 as of 2011.
Personalised pens make a practical and thoughtful gift. A humorous toobrush-shaped broach pin will help put nervous patients at ease during that dreaded root-canal work, while children will enjoy playing with a dentist's bear, complete with white lab coat and toothbrush, in your dentist's waiting room. If your dentist likes to unwind with a relaxing book, he will enjoy James Wynbrandt's entertaining and informative book, "The Excruciating History of Dentistry: Toothsome Tales & Oral Oddities from Babylon to Braces."
