Five Christmas Gift Ideas

(with a dental twist)

Christmas is coming up fast and with all the warnings over delivery delays on packages, we’ll all need to be a bit more organised with ordering presents in advance to avoid missing out. To give you a starting point on gift selection, we’ve put our heads together and come up with some genuinely excellent dental-themed ideas for Christmas presents that are sure to put a smile on your loved one’s face!

Electric Toothbrush

Let’s get the obvious one out of the way. We’ve never met a single person who switched to an electric toothbrush and then went back to their old-fashioned brush afterwards. Face it, once you’ve gone electric, you’re never going back! Ranging from simple on/off brushes right through to app-linked brushes with multiple cleaning programs, there is a wide choice available, and you can bet anyone who’s still using a manual toothbrush will be very happy for the upgrade.

Water Flosser

Traditional flossing is awkward, time consuming and potentially painful. Save them the hassle by gifting a water flosser this Christmas. These nifty bathroom gadgets squirt concentrated jets of water into the nooks and crannies between the teeth and clean any missed gunk out from under the gumline too. They’re perfect for anyone with dental crowding who finds themselves forever picking food out of their smile. For maximum efficacy, throw in a pack of our Dr Denti Mouthwash Tablets to use with the flosser. That way they can floss with a hygienic mouthwash that’s also 99.9% effective against Covid-19.

Toothbrush Timers

It’s a running joke that kids get bored of brushing their teeth, so make it fun by slipping a toothbrush timer inside their stocking this Christmas. These 2-minute timers are available either as colourful animal-themed sand timers or more fancy digital timers featuring popular cartoon characters. Whichever one you opt for, you can bet it will make the kids much more invested in their cleaning routine and a good thing too with all those Christmas treats coming their way.

Dr Mark’s HyGenie

If your loved one wears a night guard, mouth guard, ortho retainer, aligners or even a denture, Dr Mark’s HyGenie is the number one product they should be using to keep it clean and protected when not in use. This patented all-in-one cleaner has only just launched in the UK and it blew away the competition in our best dental cleaner review with its excellent results in just 60 seconds.

Pro tip: you can order Dr Mark’s HyGenie right now over at the Dental Composite Store!

Tooth Whitening Vouchers

For someone who really wants to look their absolute best every day of the week, steer clear of over-the-counter whitening and head straight to your dentist instead. While patient’s will need a check-up and treatment plan before whitening can go ahead, most dentists offer a tooth whitening gift voucher package that your friends and family would love to receive.

Whether you go with the dental theme or not, we hope we’ve given you a good starting point for choosing your presents this year. All of the gifts we suggested are widely available throughout the country but if you’d like more information on where to buy, drop us an email on or call on 01474 560 618.
