Being an orthodontist is hard work. After years of school, they devote long hours to looking after patients’ teeth. They cater to people of all ages and even risk a few biters as they examine patients’ mouths. However, it’s worth it when teeth and jaws are properly aligned and in good health. Since orthodontists are often seen as masters of pain, they may not receive the appreciation that is due to them. If you have a family member, friend, or significant other who is an orthodontist, display your regard for them through a gift. A present for Dr. Jamie N. Goodreau or another dentist doesn’t have to be serious or elaborate. Rather, stick to something that can be thought of as fun or practical.
Poke a little fun at the orthodontist in your life. They may get a laugh out of a T-shirt or a pin with a joke like “I see numb people.” Consider getting the dentist a mug or a phone case that reads “Trust me, I’m an orthodontist.” As for another cute saying, “Smile! It’s Toothsday” may get a chuckle. “You don’t have to floss your teeth–just the ones you want to keep” is often considered a favorite. If you dare to be slightly corny, a picture of a peanut saying “I’m nuts about orthodontics” could go on a hat or sticker. Consider getting the dentist a bag or sweater that says “World’s Best Orthodontist.” Not all fun gifts have to have a clever saying or pun. A great gag gift would be ice trays molded in the shape of teeth. When they’re frozen, you can put the ice in a glass of water. They’ll look like dentures resting in solution. Last, a teeth-shaped bag clip would be fairly funny and great for keeping snacks fresh.
Switch gears and think about practical items for your orthodontist. A clock with teeth on it would be useful for keeping track of the hours. A nice tie or even a tie with teeth on them would work in their office setting. Many dentists appreciate having a fish tank or aquarium in their reception area. If they already have a tank, it may be a good idea to get them some extra fish that would thrive in that environment. A magazine subscription can also be enjoyed by patients in the waiting area. Another way to please the dentist and the patients is to buy a cookbook for braces. The orthodontist can pass on tips and recipes to those who have to get braces.
