You’re a dentist. So that means your logo should be a tooth, right? Specifically your dental logo should be a clip-art-esque version of a molar.
I mean, if you want to look like 90% of dentists out there, go for it! But if you’re looking to stand out from the competition, we’ve collected a mouthful of creative dental logos to inspire you.
Abstract & wordmark dental logos
These logos achieve a modern, high-end feel through abstract symbols or simple, elegant typography. Some work in a subtle tooth image. Others gracefully abandon oral imagery altogether.
Sometimes you want the tooth, the whole tooth, and nothing but the tooth. And that’s okay! There are plenty of ways to create clever, creative dental logos that feature teeth. Geometric shapes can take a tooth from blah to brilliant. Or being playful with your teeth can create a memorable dental logo that shows off your practice’s personality.
These logos utilize a tooth image, but it’s also more than just a tooth. They cleverly integrate it into a design to give more information about their practice, be it the geographic location, customer focus or other special features. Combining a tooth with other elements is a great way to get across the personality of your practice.
And remember: you don’t always have to make the tooth shape overt. Sometimes it’s stronger to carve it out of the negative space, giving another layer of meaning to your logo design.
Logos to make you smile (er, made of smiles?)
“I add a smile to everything I wear and that has worked great for me.”
The ultimate goal of keeping those pearly whites brushed and flossed is so that they can give you that perfect smile. So why not show your patients the end result they’ll get from coming to your practice: an awesome smile? These logos incorporate the whole happy mouth into their logos with fantastic results.
Brush and paste dental logos
Sometimes it’s not as much about the product as it is about the process. A good dentist always encourages their patients to brush and floss. Keep this at the forefront of your brand’s image by incorporating a fun toothbrush or toothpaste into your logo.
At the end of the day, your dental logo should represent what makes your practice unique. If you want to use a tooth, you should use a tooth. But choose a tooth that’s going to speak to your patients. If you’re a pediatric dentist, maybe make it cute and cartoony. Want to be the best in your region?
