Sure, you’d love to receive the latest dental-themed socks, a year’s supply of N95 masks and see 100 new patients schedule appointments in December and January at your practice.

With that in mind, in lieu of our traditional Daily Floss gift guide, we’ve enlisted the services of a few personal shoppers at Benco Dental to create 12 Days of Holiday Cheer you can gift yourself , your patients and team. Bonus: no gift wrapping required.

View the first few here today, and return daily to see the remainder.
(You can also find them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.)

A Gift of TIME!

Dentists save time when Benco Dental interior designers research the trends and finishes for them, guide them through material selections and answer contractor questions.

See their work in action:

Smile Design Studios, a 2,750-square-foot masterwork of a dental office in Missouri City, Texas, just outside Houston.

Cosmetic dentist Dr. Simone Ellis achieved success on her terms at Smile Design Studios, her 2,750-square-foot masterwork in Missouri City, Texas, just outside Houston (shown). Her goal for the renovated practice: “scream-to-the-moon” aesthetic appeal.

Interior Designer Taylor Haight was part of the team of experts who helped Dr. Ellis create an atmosphere of elegance: gold accents and modern lighting augmented by a bold, crisp color palette.

“I’m the kind of person who’s ‘extra’ in my own way,” the doctor says. “If something is sparkly or brightly colored, I’m all over it. Here, I could bring the elements of the metals but add clean lines. I wanted it cohesive, modern and high-tech.”

* Scheduling in 2020 offers the added bonus of early-bird rates (shown below). Starting January 1, 2021, there will be a $500 increase in interior design fees.

A Gift of DATA

For any dental practice that aims to grow, knowing where to focus efforts is the best way to begin. If someone were to hand you a unique roadmap for your practice, across six categories backed by 12 months of your own data, it might help, right?

Benco Dental and Dental Intelligence will email a printable PDF of expert advice and analysis on these topics:

  • Hygiene Department
  • Fee Opportunity
  • Fee Schedule Comparison
  • Restorative Treatment
  • Major films
  • Periodontal care
  • Exams

In addition, they’ll send benchmarks to show how your performance ranks against 7000 other dental practices across multiple performance metrics.

On the fourth day of Holiday Cheer, Benco gives to you…


There’s a reason the iconic Herman Miller Aeron chair, shown, is the only office furniture to be part of a permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art: Its singular style and comfort is revolutionary. (Read more about the men in the MoMA. )

In 1994 when Don Chadwick and Bill Stumpf redesigned the regular office chair, their creation, Aeron, became the forerunner in ergonomics and material innovation. Back then it was the first to provide a comfortable solution without having to use environmentally harmful materials such as foam, fabric or leather. 

Twenty-six years later (and remastered by Chadwick in 2016) it’s still the most health-positive, cross-performing, inclusively sized and environmentally sensitive chair going.

A gift to your staff and to the environment

OperaDDS paperless forms offered by Benco allow your office to send your patient intake packet and consent forms via text, email, recall, or host them on your website for patients to complete on their own device.

A gift of space

As treatment and care processes continually evolve, the challenge is to keep facilities relevant. Herman Miller Compass cabinet components are easily assembled, removed, rearranged, and refreshed without demolition, and utilities can be easily accessed, added, or modified. Compass can be used to create hygiene rooms, doctor’s rooms, caregiver work areas, and other clinical spaces. The 16″ Compass cabinets are the slimmest dental cabinets on the market, helping you save much needed space in your operatories while giving you the flexibility of reconfiguring your cabinets in the future and it’s seamless design and integrated surfaces make infection prevention easy.

Talk to your friendly Benco rep on how to incorporate Compass in your office or call 1.800.GOBENCO

A gift of wellness

Simply putting a team space on your priority list offers the ability to show staff members they are appreciated, respected and their wellness matters to you.

A gift of greater peace of mind

Hackers are targeting dental offices to access patient data. The threat is real. When patients become aware that their health records are part of a data leak, the negative effects are significant. It can lead to the loss of patients’ trust in the dental practice. In health and in hacking, prevention is always better than the cure. If you would like to know how you can secure your data the best way, contact your Friendly Benco Rep today.

A gift of visual safety

Alleviating the fears of dental patients is job one for every doctor, and any opportunity to offer an atmosphere of comfort in a post-COVID environment is welcome. For patient well being, a space not only needs to be safe but it has to also feel safe. Many alternatives are available to create visual safety in open bays at dental practices, including dividers/partitions and hospital curtains. Contact our Design team at design@benco.com to know more on how to make patients feel safe in your office.

A gift of clean air

In a dental office, aerosols and contaminated air produced at the point of care are best contained in closed operatories, where a sealed room increases the effectiveness of air purification. Extraoral suction through freestanding units, or integrated systems that connect to the building’s ductwork can add another layer of protection, especially in an open bay environment. Connect with our Design team at design@benco.com to create safer and healthier spaces for your patients, staff and you.
