Contemporary

Contemporary design combines a modern approach with an artistic twist. It uses abstract shapes and non-traditional layouts. It’s excellent for dentists who are targeting a younger audience or promoting an innovative approach.

Fun

Fun sites are bright, playful, and say “wow.” The design grabs your attention with a lot of colors and movement. It’s great for pediatric dentists or doctors who want to showcase a more light-hearted vibe.

Warm

Portraying warmth and a small-town feel, these sites use natural colors and homey textures (wood, trees, etc.). The design of your warm website is always inviting and calming.

Classic

Classic websites are perfect for doctors who have an older clientele or prefer to show their high-class approach. This style uses serif fonts, heavier textures, and simple layouts for a more professional feel.

Elegant

Elegant websites are a combination of modern and classic. This design tends to use a soft color palette and more classic layouts but with a few modern touches.
