green is calming, pale green even more so.
absolutely NOTHING about dentist is calming however, cant you start with a flower/smooth stone/logo instead? lull them into false sense of calm?

That water sloosh with whirling water would do it for me

fairyfly Thu 17-Feb-05 17:18:10

Have a look through these

Are you talking about those "title" pages that just say "click here to enter the site"? I hate those with a passion...

Twiglett Thu 17-Feb-05 17:21:26

how about a big open mouth and you click on the uvula to enter

wouldn't be calming, but would make me laugh

but in general I'm with Soupy I hate those click to enter / flash intro pages .. just get on with the blinkin' site

a picture of brad pitt and his lovely pearlers!!

to make me calm and at ease looking at dentist web site...

for me -- piles of the very strong drugs that would be made available to me!!

Twiglett Thu 17-Feb-05 17:23:25

holy cr@p, why would people do this?

SenoraPostrophe Thu 17-Feb-05 17:23:42

I think it'll be fine as long as there are lots of pics of shiny teeth instead of drills etc. Also don't whatever you do have white text on dark background.

I really don't like body piercings myself but why would anyone want one in their uvula?

SenoraPostrophe Thu 17-Feb-05 17:25:07

PS just saw the title again - no don't have a title page - they just annoy people.

JoolsToo Thu 17-Feb-05 17:26:27

don't you usually click the 'skip intro'? - I do.

SoupDragon Thu 17-Feb-05 17:28:21

It's the having to skip the intro that bugs me and a lot of them are just a page with an inanimate company logo on them saying "click to enter".

<<runs off screaming into the distance>>

galaxy Thu 17-Feb-05 17:28:28

I hate intro pages and always click to skip them if available

SenoraPostrophe Thu 17-Feb-05 17:28:38

Yes, but they still annoy me. They annoy me even if they're not Flash

The problem is that it's have to be a really good image as all the images I find calming (landscapes, sky etc) have been done to death on websites and now appear twee.

Actually how about a single cloud in the middle with the writing inside? could look good if done well.

Twiglett Thu 17-Feb-05 17:39:07

ripples on a pond .. supposed to be calming

I like tony stone images myself

fairyfly Thu 17-Feb-05 17:41:42

If you leave out the doves, this kind of image is soothing

A nice bit of footage of Steve Martin singing "I'll be a dentist" from Little Shop of Horrors wouldn't calm me down but would make me laugh...
