Let’s face it, when you look good you feel good. And when you feel good, you perform better. This is true of the dental team as well.
How does the team in your office look these days? Hopefully neat, clean, pressed and ready for action! We have been in many offices where this was the case, but there was something missing… they just didn’t look like a team! Different colors, patterns and styles looks sloppy no matter how clean and neat you are. Whether you have a team of three or thirty-three, we recommend coordinating uniforms. This will make you look sharp and professional at all times! It also makes you look like a real team!
Some practices coordinate the uniforms with their decor or have different outfits for each day of the week. Scrubs are practical and can look really nice. Perhaps even have your logo embroidered on them. If the team in the front office doesn’t want to wear scrubs, coordinate with matching polo shirts or blouses. No matter what you choose, make it fun and build positive team spirit!
You won’t believe what a difference this will make in your team’s attitude. Like we said before, when you look good you feel good! Your patients will notice too and compliment you as well. It’s a win-win situation for everyone!
Remember, when instituting a new uniform, make sure there are guidelines to follow as well. Hair should be neat and pinned back, jewelry to a minimum, no heavy perfumes or lotions, if shirts are worn under scrubs, keep them matching also to avoid looking sloppy.
The goal is to look like a team, but also neat, polished and professional!
