Default help with dental office name!!!

hey guys!!
my friend is coming up with a dental office and she needs help with a name. She will be doing cleaning, fillings, crowns and bridges. At the moment her ideas were: The smile clinic, floss and gloss, brighter smile, pearly whites, miles for smiles, happy teeth, all smiles, tooth fairy, and perfect smile. All suggestions are welcome. She is in desperate need for one

Thanks!!!

Ya know...I can't tell you why, but I really like Floss & Gloss. That's the most original dentist's office name I've ever heard!

Combine the words No and Pain and you will get: Nopain Dental Office :P
Many people don't go to a dentist because they are afraid of it.

Good luck!

Bah!

It seems I'm not the first person to think of "Going The Extra Smile".

Similarly, "Nothing But The Tooth" is also taken.

So, I settled on "The Tooth Booth". Which is also taken.

I don't like this game any more

Edit: The Fountain of Tooth?

I don't think it necessarily has to be a "catchy" name.

She could go with something that is a bit generic but would have a good chance of getting ranked, like "Henderson Dental Group." "[city Dental Clinic]".

If she is going to be filing a formal entity, like an LLC, be sure to check that name too. Although she could always file a dba to do business using a name that differs from the formal entity name.

I like smile clinic or floss and gloss. In terms of ranking or making it sound slightly more professional you could compromise with Floss and Gloss Dental Group.

While "floss and gloss" is cute and catchy, it might put off some people because it doesn't sound very professional, IMO. She really needs to keep that in mind when choosing a name for her dental practice. There's a place for fun, catchy names, but when it comes to anything related to healthcare, you need to use caution.

I do like "Beautiful You Dental" (which was mentioned above). Just my opinion, but it has a classy, appealing ring to it and sounds more professional.

A name should refect the product. It is too easy to get distracted with clever sounding names.

Floss and Gloss appeals to a number of people, but it does not reflect the services she is performing.

The place to start is with the patients. What do they want from a dental office? If she has current patients she can ask them. Then take the answer that is given most often and use that for the name.

For example, if they want a dentist office that is friendly, then call it "Friendly Dental." And make sure the practice lives up to the name.

I tend to agree with Lori and Cali - Anything else mentioned sound unprofessional.

Now if you were doing an ad for a late night infomercial product on do it yourself teeth products you could get by with the "funny" names.

It needs to sound professional to have any credibility. Dentists are professionals. I wouldn't never go to a dentist that had a cutesy or clever name.

The name of the business should ideally reflect the unique selling proposition of that business. So ex. Pain Free Dentistry.

Ultimately, this is an industry that's not easy to come up with something unique. Most dentists don't specialize or differentiate in a specific niche.

If you can't, then I'd just do (last name or city name) dental clinic. If it's a small solo practice with one dentist, then it should simply be that dentists name. That way they can brand their name, use their photo with name in ads, etc.

If they are not looking for domain name, skip my comment. My suggestion pertains to domain name, not the office name.

Catchy name is good for branding, but not for traffic. If they are just starting they need traffic. Find something people are looking for.

Here is what I would do: I would spy on competition. Do search based on keywords, find offices on page #1 for the keywords. If the domain is available - grab it.

Totally agree with the "cutesy" part (unless it's pediatric dentistry); clever may be okay as long as it still sounds professional as well.

Actually, you'd be surprised how many dentists do specialize. Popular speciality areas for dentists include cosmetic dentistry, pediatric dentistry, periodontic dentistry, geriatric dentistry, and sedation dentistry. I'm sure there are several more; those are just the ones that come to mind.

It depends on just how "cutesy" it is, I suppose, but even so, I'm not sure you speak for most people, to be honest.

I lost a front adult tooth in an accident when I was a wee lad, and a bit later had to have my permanent implant removed after yet another one that led to an abscess they couldn't get rid of. So the only choice left for me, at the time, was to have a removable one fitted that was attached to a sort of retainer.

I still have it, for now.

The guy I saw, kind of grumpy and overbearing to his staff yet eccentric as hell, always wore Hawaiian shirts, and shorts that made him look as if he'd just come back from deployment in Africa with the SAS or something.

I believe he was one of the previous co-owners of the practice before going into semi-retirement. The practice was one of the nicest and most popular around, and it had a sort of "novelty name" that I can't recall.

Absolutely none of that seemed to put off clientele. Indeed, I could see the overly formal, straight-laced and clinical approach adopted by most practices being off-putting to greater numbers of people who are terrified by the prospect of visiting such places, imagining dentists as some wicked, perverse, sadistic creatures that take great pleasure from inflicting pain on others.

If they aren't deterred, but actually encouraged by the individuality and cheeriness of such a place and/or its staff, why would anyone else be?

I would pick the name of the town it is to be located in and select {town name here} Dental Clinic. Even if Google is saying keywords are less important in domain, they can't hurt.

Another suggestion is to go look at a few aftermarket sites and see what's available. A good name with some age may be worth it.

Oh, I kid. But we're having fun, right?

My ex-dentist actually owns teeth.com, which I find mildly amazing, but I don't think it really does any good for a local business to own a major keyword on a global Internet. That makes about as much sense as my mechanic Joe owning garage.com.

For some reason I like Floss and Gloss too! My dentist only goes by his actual name and no fancy name for his office. He's great though and I've been going to him for years. Has she thought about just doing that - going by her name and being professional about it?

The name you like to get is online of offline ?
If online , it better to choose with keywords so you can take advantages with SEO.
If offline, you can go with tooth fairy which really good imagination. Or you just try to go with the name of the dentist, because people always remember the doctor or dentist name if he really have that skill.
Tooth fairy is good way to persuade kids to visit rather than a dental name that scare kids away.

I don't know that ANYONE speaks for most people, including myself.

My comment is not based on my opinion. It's based on what actually works in marketing professional practices, such as dentists.

If we took a poll of 100 people on the street, I bet the majority would feel most comfortable going to a place called "city name dental clinic" OR "last name dental associates." And that's probably why there are many dental places with names like that, rather than "floss and gloss".

Frankly, that sounds like a name for a car wash. Or a shoe shine service. I'm talking about the appropriateness of it, not the exact working of course.
