Medical Scrubs Updates & News


  • Embroidered Scrubs - Bringing Personality and Professionalism to Your Uniform

    Medical scrubs replaced the traditional nurses uniforms in the 1960s, as an easy to clean and cheap to replace alternative. Since this introduction, their popularity has grown and they are no longer just seen as a medical uniform, but used by a wide variety of employers. Whilst they are now available in a range of colours and styles they can sometimes seem very plain, but embroidered scrubs can help you to stand out and to build and enhance your brand awareness.

  • Dental Nurse Uniforms - Opportunities to Try Before You Buy!

    Approximately 75% of the exhibitions and conferences we attended in 2018 were dentistry related and it's looking to follow the same pattern this year! We therefore speak to a lot of dental professionals about uniforms, so we thought we would do a series of blogs focusing on appropriate uniforms for different roles - starting with Dental Nurse Uniforms.

    We take along a range of our most popular products to each exhibition and try to have an example of each colour and style - giving you an opportunity to try before you buy. If you're looking to update your uniforms for 2019 you can find our growing list of exhibitions by clicking here. Continue reading

  • Dental scrubs: Impression Material

    Our Sales Manager Steve Salt wrote the following article for the Pro Dentistry website earlier this year regarding dental scrubs and how embroidered uniforms can make a positive first impression.

    Impression Material

    No! Not the impression material you use every day on your patients, I'm talking about the way clinical staff are dressed and the impression it gives to your clients.

    It's said you only get one chance to make a first impression and this is particularly true in the dental world. Any patient walking into a surgery to be greeted by scruffy staff will immediately equate that to the quality of the treatment they are about to receive. Continue reading
