It is important to have a solid dress-code policy in the clinic in order to protect staff from harmful comments and to build up a proficient, confident, and secure image of the clinic which reflects the ideal medical services offered by the clinic.
All staff should dress in an appropriate and professional style to maintain a confident and proficient image for patients.
Guidelines for professional attire for the staff to commit:

The staff are instructed to not wear closed-toed, non-sneaker shoes and definitely no flip-flops or beach sandals.
Any employee with body art must make sure that it is covered from sight at all times.
