Abstract


Introduction: It is essential for dentists to ensure that they have proper attire when dealing with the patients and their physical appearance as well. Materials and Methods: This is a cross-sectional study conducted among patients visiting REU clinics using an online survey. A total of 500 patients having at least one previous visit to REU clinics filled up the survey. Results: Chi-square test showed that there was no statistically significant difference among malesí and femalesí responses (p-value > 0.05). However, statistically significant differences were achieved when the responses were compared on the basis of age, marital status, and the number of yearly dental visits. Conclusion: A dentistís attire has a significant impact on the patients. Type of attire, mask, and goggles also affect patientsí mood.

Keywords: Attire, Dental patients, Appearance.
