Coming up with the perfect gift idea is not always the easiest thing to do, especially when the recipient is someone as unconventional as your friendly neighbourhood dentist. You can smile, however, because there are actually many unique, dental-themed gifts in the marketplace that provide a classy, fun way to show your appreciation for everything your dentist does for you.
An anatomical tooth clock is a good way to show your dentist that you acknowledge how valuable his time is. The clock makes a fun wall item for either the waiting room or the operating room, with a hardwood back and a raised glass front over the face. The clock's Quartz movement operates off of one AA battery. This gift can be found online at Practicon Gifts.
If your dentist caters more to children, a clock with a cartoon illustration of a healthy, happy tooth or toothbrush might be more appropriate. Other great gift clocks like this can be found online at The Find.
Taking up the game of golf seems to be prevalent among older dentists who are getting a bit long in the tooth. For those, "cavi-tees" make the perfect gift item. They are made from high-impact white plastic with a head shaped like a molar. They are 2 inches tall, with 20 tees to a bag, and they are guaranteed not to harm woods or affect performance. This gift can be found online at Practicon Gifts.
Perhaps the only time you can show up to your dentist's office with a giant hole in your tooth and not get a lecture is when that tooth is actually a glazed ceramic molar vase. This versatile gift is approximately 6 inches tall and can be used for a whole range of things, from storing pencils and pens to holding flowers and plants. It makes a great front desk accessory. This gift can also be found at Practicon Gifts online.
What do you get for the dentist who has a sweet tooth of his own? Try a hefty 2.27kg. or smaller 0.454kg. bag of gummi teeth. This fun and unique alternative to gummi bears is just what the dentist ordered and can be a great reward for kids who have solid checkups. They would also fit nicely in the molar vase listed above. These candies can be found online at Best Bulk Products and Candy Warehouse.
Dental -Themed T-shirts
For the dentist who has everything and needs nothing, you can always go with the safe bet: a comical T-shirt. They come in dozens of styles, sizes, pictures and prices, and you are almost sure to find one your dentist can flaunt to his friends. Many feature clever lines like "Got Implants?" or "Dentists: Paid to get on your nerve!" A few examples of such shirts can be found at Dentalgiggles.com, Cafepress.com, and Cartoon stock.com
