PROFESSIONAL APPEARANCE STANDARDS
 

As a health care professional, it is important that you present to your patients, instructors, and peers, a positive image of those qualities representative of a dental hygienist.  Part of this image is reflected in your personal appearance and dress.  Patients often form a first impression based on the physical appearance of their clinician and tend to develop more trust in a person who looks clean, neat, and professional.  As a dental hygienist, you are also a role model to other health professionals and members of the community. 

To assist you in developing an appropriate professional appearance, the following guidelines have been established and are to be used in the various educational settings in both clinic and classroom sessions during your dental hygiene education.
