Finding a good gift for the dentist in your life can be hard. It’s almost like pulling teeth, right? Don’t worry though, we did all the legwork for you to “fill-in” your dental gift box. No one will assume you have a cavity in your heart.
Okay, we’re done with the puns now… because they’re bad for your teeth. We hope you enjoy our list of dental gifts you can buy today!
Dentistry Gift Ideas
1. Dentistry T-Shirt
Dentists are just like the rest of us and have a sense of humor. Getting them a t-shirt inspired by their industry is one thing, but it needs to be funny. Otherwise, what’s the point right? We feel that these shirts do just that.
2. Dentist Mug
You know a dentist at home is going to drink coffee even if they tell you it’s bad for you. They might also drink several other things bad for their teeth. Why not remind them of their profession each time they take another drink with one of these great dentist mugs?
3. Ceramic Tooth Pots
Potted plants can often be kind of boring unless you’re growing something interesting. Why not spice it up with ceramic tooth plant pots? These gifts would be an excellent addition to any dental office.
4. Tooth Necktie
When a dentist isn’t ripping out teeth or filling cavities, they too like to dress up. Now with a tooth-inspired necktie they can take their love of teeth with them at any formal event. This will tell everyone, “Hey, dentist here, ask me your dental questions.” Will it cause your dental friend problems? Potentially. Yet that’s part of the fun!
5. Cacao Nibs
Dentists will often advise against several different types of foods or snacks. This is usually due to how bad they are for your teeth. If you’re going to get a dentist something that fits the snack need, it needs to be healthy and fine for the teeth. Cacao nibs get the job done. They’re organic and work for numerous diets, even KETO!
6. Tooth Socks
Just like with a tie, you want to make sure your dental friend stands out in public. Another good way to do this is by getting them tooth socks. They might get a lot of weird looks or questions, starting random conversations. This sets up awkward times when they must tell people they’re a dentist. Which makes your gift so rewarding, right?
7. Dentist Wine Glass
Dentists deal with a lot of, shall we say, “difficult” patients. This is why having a drink when they get home from work is understandable. Why not get them a gift to help them with that? A nice dentist wine glass only helps them realize why they need a drink in the first place. Sure, that might be counterproductive but that’s why the gift is so funny.
8. Tooth Magnets
Magnets are great for everyone, but having some that can be decorative around their office is hard to beat. These tooth magnets can work perfectly, as they look almost like real teeth except they’re clearly not. From a dentist, it’ll look like a dentist is collecting his or her patients’ teeth on a regular basis and putting them on the wall. That might seem a little strange to you, but you can’t be a dentist without being a little weird.
9. Dental Sticky Notes
Sticky notes are great for everyone, yet for a dentist you want to spice it up a bit. Having these sticky note types, which shows off the mouth and teeth can look cool. However, you might be putting words in someone’s mouth here. Might wanna be careful about that.
10. Tooth Clock
Sanis Enterprises has made an awesome dental clock that will compliment anyone’s desk. Not only does it tell time well but it looks cool too. We feel it would make any dental office better but it could also work for their home and/or personal office too.
11. Dental Wall Art
Dental wall art can make your dental friend’s practice look that much better. This art piece is an x-ray of teeth, which looks just like the ones you’ll have taken in a dentist office too.
12. Classic Dental Tools
Keeping to the art theme, did you know that before modern dentistry humans still practiced some form of it for centuries? It’s true and some of those dentist tools were crazy! Having this artwork on the wall will be a good reminder of how far dentistry has come.
13. Books for Dentists
It might be hard to find a dental book that your dentist friend has not read while in dentistry school. But we’ve found a few which might prove to be entertaining reads or be good to have in the waiting room for patients to flip through.
14. Tooth Cufflinks
Cufflinks are great to have for anyone trying to fancy-up their wardrobe. Yet not all cufflinks will work and look good. However, tooth cufflinks will always work. They look so close to real teeth that it might make people assume your dental friend is a real badass. Just don’t let anyone get too close.
15. Dentist Gift Box
A dental gift box has everything a dentist will need. It has some of the stuff we referenced above inside of it as well as other great novelty gifts too. It truly works as a gift for a dentist or one a dentist gives to a patient or loved one.
16. Dental Ice Tray
If you really want to have some fun with a dentist, getting a dental ice tray would do just that. It’s a real ice tray you add water to like normal. Except when it freezes, you will pull ice out that looks just like teeth. Imagine pouring them a drink with “ice teeth” inside of it. That’s honestly so awesome, we’re gonna try it with other non-dentists too!
17. Tooth Cookie Cutter
Everyone loves cookies, right? How could any red-blooded human hate them? That said, if you want to get dental inspired here, then a tooth cookie cutter is certainly the way to go. They are sized at 3.5 inches and will result in cool tooth cookies. We feel this would be fun to give a dentist, so they can make tooth cookies for their other dentist friends.
