This article “Patient perception for dentist’s attire and hygienic practices” discusses the preferences and perceptions of dental patients in Karachi Pakistan. As we are seeing more accommodations and relaxations in professional attire world over, the paper concludes that patients still prefer the professional attire and image for a dentist, and this impacts their choice of dentist.
