Your dental practice logo is the most recognizable aspect of your practice branding.
And since your logo is often the first impression someone gets of your practice, be it through business cards, your website, or your office sign, it needs to be carefully thought out to ensure you are sending the right message.
When starting a new dental practice, deciding on things like logo design and practice branding can be difficult when it isn’t your area of expertise.
If you’ve been in practice a while, but know it’s time to update your branding, it can be hard to know where to start.

How to Find the Right Dental Logo Designer
You have a few options when it comes to having a logo designed. You can:
- Have a friend, family member, or patient design it for you
- Hire a freelance graphic designer
- Work with a design/marketing company
If you or a friend or family member has graphic design skills, excellent! Just make sure you go through our checklist first to decide what it is you want and don’t be afraid to ask for revisions until your dental logo is exactly what you envisioned (sometimes this is difficult when the designer is a friend, family member, or patient).
There are countless freelance designers out there who can create a beautiful logo for you. Just be mindful of your budget, as freelance design can be quite costly.
Many dental website and marketing companies, Smile Marketing included, have graphic designers on staff who can create a customized logo for your practice. Having your logo designed by the same company designing your website is a great way to ensure consistent branding online.
Then, simply ask for a high-resolution version of your logo to use on your business cards and in-office signage!
