Having fruit-infused water available in your waiting room is an element that will make your office feel more like a spa than a traditional dental office.
Tips and tricks
- Consider purchasing a glass beverage dispenser with a fruit infuser built in so that your fruit stays looking neat and in place and to prevent seeds from clogging the watering spout.
- Do not use blueberries, it will turn the water dark.
- Cut up the fruit in small chunks so that it fits nicely in the dispenser and releases the most juice.
- Roll lemons first before cutting them because the oil will come out of the peel faster.
We fill a quarter of the dispenser with ice, put the fruit in the diffuser cylinder, and fill the rest up with water. For some cost savings, you can go with frozen fruit chunks. This also allows you to stock up on fruit, making fewer trips to the store each month.
Just in case
We also have an extra water dispenser on hand in case our main one breaks. Using short, clear classy looking disposable cups keeps children from filling a glass with too much water, limiting large-scale spills in the waiting room.
Our favorite combinations:
- Lemon and lime
- Strawberry and lemon
- Mango, pineapple, strawberries
- Mint and lemon
- Cucumber and mint
