What is or is not appropriate for a practice can depend on demographics, or simply the image the practice owner wishes to convey. If needed tattoos can be covered and facial piercings removed while at work. Excessive jewelry, super-long nails, and heavy perfumes should also be avoided.
Patients' needs are top priority. The practice owner and all staff should leave personal issues and opinions outside of the dental practice. Patients visit your office to improve their dental health and eliminate pain.
