Have any of you sellers taken your products to dentist offices or marketed directly with dentist offices? I have thought this might be the way to go with items specialized like ours, but I wonder if anybody had any luck with this?

Also, are there other marketing strategies that have helped you get visibility and sales for your goods?

Great question! I've thought about it, there's a Pediatric Dentist's office nearby. You have inspired me to go there and approach them. I'll probably go in the next week or two. I'm just getting over a bad cold and don't want to sound sick with coughing, I'll go when I no longer cough or sound funny.

Please keep us posted Janet.

Googling for dentist gifts, there are lots of venues out there that would be a good way to sell multiple quantities of items like ours. Has anybody had luck with this?

PS, a good idea is to set up a blog / online shop that is like a dental gift boutique. Please feature us all! If you know of such a blog, let us know too!

I hope you all see an increase in views and sales. I searched out etsy dentists and made some invites to view our team and see our items. Maybe that's something you can do as well.

If you know a dentist, point her or him to our team! If you see dentists on facebook or online or elsewhere, especailly dentists who would like etsy goods, send them the team link:

Maybe mention that they might find something special for their patients or staff!

I have dropped off my card and goodies to over 300 dentist offices in the Phoenix, AZ area and have had a big response!

Well I went to the pediatric dentist's office last week, I brought along some samples and left one for the manager to see. The hygienists/assistants and front desk receptionists were wonderful, very nice. I waited a week and then called. Although they were not interested in selling them, they are keeping one as a sample along with my business cards for anyone interested in contacting me. Thank you very much for inspiring me to increase my visibility and sales!

I had my first craft show yesterday. I sold all but 5 of my tooth fairy pillows... none to dentists.

I still haven't cracked into dentist supply, but these little pillows are still doing pretty well. I sold one today--I think the little girl, age 4, wanted to wear the pillow like a purse.
