Profile picture of the author TheMassacre by TheMassacre Posted: 05/01/2012
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
    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 really like the name "Floss & Gloss" has a certain ring to it!

    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.

    Mental Dental - she could have a great logo with a mad scientist type. Don't think she would get too many patients though

    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.
