February is here and that means Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! As a dentist, it’s normal to have mixed feelings about this holiday. On the one hand, it’s so wonderful to celebrate love and affection for the people in your life, like your amazing dental practice team members!

On the other hand… All. That. Sugar.

We aren’t saying that you should completely avoid sugar this Valentine’s Day, but chances are, your team members are going to get plenty of that from other people in their lives. We wanted to give you some fun ideas to show your dental practice’s team members that you LOVE them and the hard work they do for you without putting their teeth in any kind of danger.

Serious About Teeth Notebook

How adorable is this notebook? If your team members are anything like mine, a pretty pink notebook is something they’ll go crazy over. This one is from Dental Hygiene Nation, a site that has tons of adorable products for tooth lovers. Check them out here!

Essie Valentine’s Day Nail Polish

Cute nails are mandatory when you’re working in a dental practice! Help your team keep their nails pretty and classy at the same time with this limited edition polish from Essie! You can find a few different shades at Target for just $8.99. Your team will absolutely love this thoughtful gift… and it won’t hurt their teeth at all 😊

Mini Gold Tooth Necklace

There are some real treasures on Etsy, but this itsy bitsy gold tooth charm on a delicate chain really caught my eye. It’s the perfect gift for your dental practice team members because it is so beautiful, yet it doesn’t break the bank.

Conversation Heart Bath Bombs

These almost-too-cute-to-use bath bombs from Anthropologie are the perfect substitute for a sugary treat. They look like the Valentine’s Day candy we know and love, but they’re better because they’re all about helping us relax. Bath bombs are all the rage these days, and these adorable hearts will be your team member’s favorite gift this year.

You still have a few weeks to scoop up some thoughtful gifts for your dental practice’s team members. They work so hard everyday to support you and help you meet your goals. Why not show them a little love on Valentine’s Day with some sweet (but not sugary) treats?


The holidays are right around the corner (cue panic) but if you haven’t thought about what to get your dental practice team yet, don’t worry! We’ve got you covered! Just like last year, we’ve put together some gift ideas for you to consider when it comes to showing appreciation to your team members.

When you think of floss, you probably don’t think Cara Cara Orange or Fresh Coconut. Well, now you should! CocoFloss has unique flavored floss that will leave your mouth feeling as fresh as ever! Your dental team will appreciate the fun take on a staple item. Pair a few flavors with a new Sonicare for the ultimate dentist gift ever!

Dental Practice Team Gifts (3)

There’s nothing more relaxing and indulgent than dropping a gigantic bath bomb into a nice warm bathtub and vegging for a few hours. We love the ones from Lush, but you can also find really great ones at Bath & Body Works and Ulta. Pair a few bath bombs with some body wash and face masks and you’ve got a nice self-care bundle that your team will definitely appreciate!

Once again, Chatbooks makes our end-of-year list! These little books are basically a real life version of your social media photos. All you have to do is create an account, sync it up with your team member’s Instagram or Facebook, and have their treasured photos printed out into a meaningful book that they can cherish forever! Check out their collab with Rifle Paper Co. for the most beautiful books you’ve ever seen.

Don’t forget to watch out for upcoming Black Friday sales! You might be able to snag a couple of these items on sale!
