[Project Complete] Doss Dental logo - $175

(Admin code added by Palmer - 5BA1631390097670E)

My business name is Doss Dental. It will be a family dental practice with newer technology than most offices. I don't want to go cheesy kid friendly with my image though. I'm also trying to stay away from the traditional tooth logo because that is what most dentists in the area are using. As far as colors I think a navy blue would be safe for the main color and if you want to use other colors to supplement, that is fine. The reason for the color is that it is in a shopping center with greens and reds taken as colors. It might be neat to do something with the D's...I don't know. I will have a lighted sign that will showcase the logo. I met with an advertising agency that I couldn't afford and the logo guy there said that he would have to work in the horizontal plane with the logo because of sign regulations.

I like the third logo down, except use the blue for the name, and the gray for the logo background.
