Unfortunately most people go visit their dentist when it is too late and show up in a bad mood or even stressed. By wearing a name badge you are creating a personal connection with your patient and showing them you are not just a generic dentist. If you work with kids you can enhance your name badge by putting a smiley face or cartoon image with your name. This can help lighten the mood so they can see you are a fun dentist and don't need to be scared of getting their teeth cleaned. Who wants a stranger working on their teeth?
