It can be beneficial to have a uniform requirement for administrative members of a dental office team. Uniforms can create a professional environment, and they make members of the team more identifiable for patients. Uniforms can make the team feel more connected, save members money on clothing and reduce the cognitive overload that can occur when people have to think about what to wear to work. The uniforms might be costly in the short-term, but they can be a valuable investment that can enhance the dental practice.
- It is important to consider requiring the administrative staff to also wear uniforms in order to make a good impression.
- Having a uniform can make team members appear to be professional, and it can help patients easily know who is associated with the staff.
- Team members enjoy the uniform because it saves them money and it reduces their cognitive thinking about what to wear each day.
“As dental office managers, we are faced with many day to day issues, and maintaining a competitive edge for our practice has become a very important focus for me.”
