A dental office must always be kept clean in order to show the patients that there is good hygiene throughout the dentistry. A dental office is the first thing that a patient sees and therefore the first impression that they get about the place. If I were to talk into a dental office that was filthy and not well kept then I would not really trust that the rest of the tools that were going to be used in my mouth were going to be clean enough for me to trust. Therefore my first impression would be based on the dirtiness of the dental office that I fist looked at when I came in, I might even decide to not get service from the place if I am concerned enough about the place. However a clean dental office is something that I always expect when I walk into a good dentistry and expect to receive the best service. Although I understand that sometimes there are many kids that come into a dental office and that sometimes there can be a little mess that can be overlooked but it should never accumulate to the point where it is quite noticeable and uncomfortable. First impression can have a lasting impact on any person because once they have an idea of what they think something is they have certain expectations that go along with that idea. Cleanliness is something that is very important for any sort of business in order to show that their services are well concerted and will be hygienically acceptable at all times. You would not want to walk into a grocery store that has all the boxes of food unorganized all over the place or that has old fruits that are going bad next to the good fruits.
