1. Vampire: This classic costume is great for dental professionals because it’s got a “toothy” element to it. If you don’t have time for the cape and makeup, don’t worry! Vampires have been portrayed in all sorts of ways throughout the years in films, movies, video games, and other forms of media, which means you can totally make this costume your own. Just don’t forget the trademark accessory: fangs!
2. Tooth Fairy: Another classic costume, the tooth fairy is the epitome of oral hygiene and fun for children. This costume can be fairly simple. Throw on some fairy wings, and carry around a magic wand or maybe even a toothbrush and some floss. If you want things to get extra festive, maybe make use of some glitter makeup or body paint. Your patients will be sure to enjoy this costume. The images below are a little ambitious, but you can execute this costume however you like.
3. A Tooth: Possibly the simplest costume you can find as a dental professional is a tooth. It fits the workplace, it pokes light-hearted fun at your profession, and it’s completely in the spirit of campy Halloween costumes. Most stores sell this full costume for under $50, but if you want to make one yourself, you can use paper, painted cardboard boxes, bendable foam boards, or even lots and lots and lots of cotton balls. Whichever way you transform into a tooth, your patients are sure to love it this costume.
