As a dentist, hygienist or dental nurse you spend the majority of your day working face to face with patients, and your presentation makes a huge impact on the overall impression of the practice. From the moment they walk through the door, your patients are putting their care into your hands and expecting the highest standards in every aspect of treatment delivery, even down to the uniform you wear. A smart appearance will inspire confidence, helping your patients feel relaxed. So the dental uniform you choose to wear is an important choice.
Choosing your dental uniform is just like choosing every day clothes; you want the best brands, comfortable and hard wearing fabrics and modern, functional design. It needs to look good, feel comfortable and last the rigours of everyday wear. Increasingly dental uniforms are forming part of a surgery’s brand identity, so making the right choice is even more essential. Here’s some advice from My Dental Uniform on how to choose the right dental uniform for you.
If you’re selecting uniforms for your whole surgery, it’s important that the style you choose suits a range of different shapes and sizes. If you’re just buying for yourself, reflecting the existing uniform style of your colleagues will be a factor. Hejco dental uniform, available exclusively from My Dental Uniform in the UK, have developed a range of surgery wear to suit even the most fashion conscious of dental professionals, from free and easy moving scrubs to fitted and professional tabard styles.
Colour is an important consideration; bright colours can feel light, fun and exciting, whereas more muted colours can give an elegant, professional feel. As well as traditional white and black uniforms, Hejco offer tunics, shirts, jackets and trousers in colours from light blue to apple green and everything in between.
Clothing plays a big part in the way you feel and when working at the chair side and leaning over patients for prolonged periods of time you want to make sure that you are comfortable in the clothes you are wearing. We know you often need to work at speed and under pressure, so Hejco’s uniform fabrics are soft and comfortable. The range is specifically designed using stretch fabrics to help you move around with ease and keep cool even on those very busy or hot summer days. Remember, if you look and feel good then the patient will feel good too.
Working in a busy dental practice is a constant battle against stains, so it’s understandable that you want to feel assured that your uniform will stand the test of time. Designed and developed with help and advice from professional users, the Hejco dental clothing range features designs that not only look professional, well-tailored and stylish, but also give the highest priority to ensuring that the uniforms are durable and able to withstand the rigors of varied and demanding duties.
