Here at, it is no secret that we love dentists! We believe that dentists are so important to our society by promoting wellness and oval health. Dentists do more than keep your smile attractive; they also check up on your overall health as well. The health of your mouth serves as a mirror for your general health.

However, one thing that tends to be common, is that they spend a lot of time on their feet. If you are a dentist (or if you have a dentist in your life) keep reading to learn why compression socks will make a big difference in your work day and beyond. We love to supply our dentist with funky, modern, comfortable dental uniforms and now we bring you NEW compression socks that will match your dental uniforms perfectly! But before we get to showing off our NEW compression socks, let us take a look at why all dentists should be wearing compression socks.

Here are five reasons every dentist needs compression socks:

1. Compression Socks Reduce Leg Fatigue

Compression socks can help reduce the level of heaviness and leg fatigue dentists often experience. This is because compression socks are designed to improve the circulation of blood within the legs. The boost in blood flow brings with it increased levels of oxygen and other much-needed nutrients to give your legs the fuel they need throughout the work day.

2. Compression Socks Reduce Swelling

Being on your feet all day often leads to a build-up of fluid in the muscle tissue or the swelling of the legs. This pooling of fluid can be very painful and may even impact your ability to perform your dental shift well. This is another great reason why every dentist needs compression socks. Wearing compression socks can help to keep your legs from swelling by forcing the blood to flow upwards. Compression socks provide graduated compression which means that they are tightest around the feet and lower legs which are usually the most affected areas when it comes to swelling.

3. Compression Socks Reduce Varicose Veins

These days most dental uniforms cover up unsightly varicose veins, but that doesn’t mean dentists should have to keep their legs covered even when they are not wearing their dental uniforms! Since varicose veins put pressure on the leg, compression socks reduce the build-up of blood in the veins. This means that compression socks are an excellent treatment option for relieving the symptoms of varicose veins -- which means you can enjoy showing your legs on your days off!

4. Compression Socks Help with Muscle Recovery

The benefits of compression socks don’t end when your working day is through. It is advisable to wear compression socks when you get home and kick off the dental uniforms to relax and boost muscle recovery. In other words, your feet still need care even after your dental shift is over. Continue wearing your compression socks to reduce swelling, boost circulation and relieve soreness in the legs and feet.

5. Compression Socks Can Brighten Your Day

Most compression socks on the market are dull and drab, but at ClothesRackUniforms, our unique design style and innovative knitting techniques ensure that you can be comfortable and trendy. We have many different styles to fit your personality.
