Make it obvious that you're a dentist.

First, you want it to be obvious that your business is a dental practice. When people look at the sign on the door, will they know immediately what to expect? Simply including the word “Smile” or “Dental” is usually enough.

Make sure the name is unique.

Next, you want to make sure the name of your practice is not too similar to other local practices. The goal is to be unique and memorable. If there is already a “Main St. Dental” in your town, you would not want to name your practice “Main St. Dental Center”. At this time, you may also want to see if the website domain name for your practice is available. It does not need to be an exact match, but something very similar can be helpful. When someone does an online search for your practice, you want your website to be first on the page.

Think about including your own name.

Many dentists choose to include their last name in the name of the practice. Jones Dental Clinic or Smith Dental Wellness might be good options. You can fill in the blanks with your own name.

Use your geographic location.

Other dentists may choose to include the name of their town, county, state, or region in the name of the practice. You could go with "Midtown Smiles" or "Ocean County Dental Group". Avoid being too specific. If you were to expand your practice, would you need to change the name?

Include your area of expertise.

If you have a specialty, be sure to include that in the name of your practice. You will immediately stand out to certain prospective patients. If your specialty is pediatric dentistry, Including the word “family”, “kids”, “children” or even “pediatric” in the name of your practice is a great idea! If you specialize in sedation dentistry or dental surgery, think about including those important keywords in the name of your practice.

Use a powerful adjective.

If you would rather not use your own in the name of your clinic, certain adjectives can serve as a good substitute. Words like “premier”, “elite”, “advanced”, or “optimal” may help to elevate your brand and attract more affluent patients.

Ask friends and family members for help.

Don't be afraid to ask for help. Before settling on a name, make sure to talk it out with someone. This might be a business partner, a mentor, or even a close friend. Ask your family members for name suggestions.
