Once your dental office equipment has arrived and been put in place, your next thought should be on your professional appearance. You will want your patients to be comfortable talking with you during consultations about their dental needs.
Dental equipment suppliers may be able to supply you with dental uniforms. They may even give you a break on the cost because you spent so much on the equipment with them. The problem with ordering from your equipment supplier is; are the uniforms going to be of good quality? You could also ask other dentists in your area where they have gotten good deals from for their dental uniforms. They might be nice and fill you in on whom and where they get their uniforms.
Your best deals will most likely come from searching online for dental uniforms. It may take some time to search for the style, colors and the right price that you want. With an online search you will be able to compare prices to get the best deal. Make sure when you are comparing uniforms that you compare the same style and quality in order to find the cheapest deal.
Another idea for finding dental uniforms is through an auction site. Auction sites sell overstocked items from stores or stores that have gone out of business. You might be able to find exactly what you are looking for at a much cheaper price and good quality. Your choice of styles and colors might be limited at an auction site.
There are many online sites that offer dental uniforms in many different styles. By law, any member who works in surgery in a dental office must wear a dental uniform. Uniforms can only be worn in the office. A clean uniform must be worn each day to prevent cross contamination.
The proper protective clothing should be worn by the dental physician as well as all staff members. The dental uniform protects everyone including the patient from exposure to body fluids and blood. Uniforms are required to be worn for hygiene and safety. The dental uniforms consist of a gown, face mask, gloves and little booties that cover the shoes. In order to protect the body from contamination the gown should be long enough to cover down past the knees. Long sleeves are also recommended for those times when being in close contact with clients. Closed toed shoes should be worn when treating a patient. Patients are reassured when the dental office is sterile and the staff is professional looking. Choosing dental uniforms for the office can be a challenge. The one thing to keep in mind is that you want the uniform to be stylish as well as being resistant to the absorption of body fluids.
The whole office doesn’t have to wear the same dental uniform. To distinguish the surgical team from the hygienists they would wear a different style. Dentists would wear one style uniform and the nurses and hygienists could wear another, yet similar style. This helps the patients to know who is who in the office. If everyone wore completely different styles and colors then the office would look unprofessional. It is important that the office looks like a team so the patients are comfortable.
Unisex jackets, tops and pants can be ordered in bulk once your office team picks the perfect style dental uniforms for the office. Jackets can be ordered in two different lengths. The longer length for when treating the patient and the shorter one for consultations.
The face masks and shoe coverings are disposable.
A well dressed office will instill confidence in the patients that they have chosen the right office for their dental needs.
