Orthodontists gifts come in all shapes and sizes. Here are a few that really stand out:

1. Set of 4 Ceramic Flower Teeth Pots

How cute are these little tooth-shaped planter pots?! Your orthodontist will enjoy caring for and watching their plants grow out of these cute “teeth.”

It’s the perfect decor for desks, coffee tables, bookshelves or mantles in the home or office.

Your order comes with four high-quality clay planters that measure 7 x 10 cm each.

These little pots do not include the plants, so be sure to do the planting ahead of time (or include some succulent seeds) before you do the gifting.

2. “All Together Now” Teeth Shirt

For fun orthodontist gifts, you can’t go wrong with fun t-shirts! This one takes the cake.

Imagine the look on your doctor’s face when they open this gift and see those silly braced teeth looking up at them! Casual Fridays just got a whole lot more fun.

This All Together Now! Orthodontist T-Shirt is available in three different shades (black, dark gray or light gray) and several different sizes.

3. Custom Engraved Tumbler

Orthodontists and dentists have a lot on their plates. They have numerous patients to care for and worry about, all day long, and sometimes the stress of their job can make them forget to properly care for themselves.

Staying hydrated is super important no matter who you are, but especially if you’re a doctor. So help your fave orthodontist remember to drink up with this super fun tumbler from Northwest Gifts.

This Polar Camel tumbler comes custom engraved with their name and a cute little tooth. Another popular design is this one, which you can customize to say anything you like:

Have it say “Best Receptionist Ever” or “Best Orthodontist Assistant” or anything you like.

The tumblers are double walled and vacuum sealed for maximum insulation. Each design is available in many different styles and colors, and with bulk discounts too. So you can personalize one for every team member!

4. Custom Orthodontist’s Mug

Your orthodontist will enjoy sipping her morning cup o’ joe from this cute mug.

It features a cartoon character in her own likeness, as well as her name, which makes it that much more special and fun.

And with the smiling tooth wearing a set of braces, she won’t have to explain to anyone what kind of a doctor she is.

When ordering, you get to choose from several different cartoon characters, so pick the one that most closely resembles your orthodontist! You can also choose between glasses/no glasses.

These ceramic mugs hold up to 15 ounces and are both dishwasher and microwave safe.
