Abstract: Aim: To assess the patient opinion towards dental clinical attire, name badges and commonly used cross-infection control measures in the dental hospital. Method: Patients attending the dental hospital were asked to complete a questionnaire accompanied by photographs of models portraying a range of clinical attire. A representative sample of patients completed questionnaires over a 10 week period. Results: The study found that 42 % of the patients felt clinical attire was very important and 94.1 % preferred dental professionals to wear name badges. The majority of patients also preferred dentists to use both safety glasses (75.3 %) and face masks (94.4 %)). Conclusion: Wearing professional dress of scrubs with apron while providing patient care by dentists may favorably influence trust and confidence-building in the dental patients.
