Let's take a look at five great gift ideas for National Dentist Day!
Dentist (and their dedicated, caring staff members!) work hard to ensure that your teeth stay healthy, clean, and free from pain. So while it's always a good idea to show appreciation for their work, National Dentist Day is the perfect time to give a gift that shows you appreciate all that they do for those pearly whites.
When is National Dentist Day?
National Dentist Day is celebrated annually on March 6th.
How do you observe National Dentist Day?
One of the best (and easiest) ways to observe National Dentist Day is to post a glowing review of your dentist. This can be on Google, on third-party review sites (think Yelp), or on social media (most places have a Facebook page).
You can also send a card, a tray of goodies for the whole office, or a special gift. Whatever you do for your dentist, they'll appreciate it!
For dental office workers:
You probably already have some sort of tradition to honor and celebrate your dentist boss, but if you don't, here are some ideas:
- Go in on a gift card to a classy restaurant
- Have everyone sign an appreciative card
- Give a plaque or special photo frame for their office
- Commission artwork (from a professional artist, like this one)
- Make a special donation in the dentist's name
- Pitch in together on a thoughtful gift (see below)
National Dentist Day is about you, but you know that you wouldn't be where you are without your stellar staff. Plus, National Dental Assistant Week/Day is also often celebrated at the same time.
So give your staff some gifts!
We recommend something that can be shared among the whole staff, like a tray of bakery items, or a small gift personalized for each staff member. Our personalized tumblers are perfect for this, we can engrave each one with their name and "BEST. DENTAL ASSISTANT. EVER." or something similar - and you still get bulk discounts, even with individually personalized mugs.
