October is National Dental Hygiene Month. That means everyone is being reminded to take care of their teeth. At allheart, we think it’s also a good to show your appreciation to the folks who help maintain those sparkling smiles.
Now’s a great time to say thanks to your favorite dentist or dental hygienist with a dental themed scrub top or accessory. Or grab a tooth-themed top, watch or pin for yourself. That way, you’ll feel and look great while reminding folks to brush, floss and rinse!
Remind folks to “give a hoot” about brushing in this adorable mock wrap scrub top from Cherokee.
Remind them “it’s time for a cleaning,” while wearing this Whimsical Watches domed watch with miniature toothbrush & toothpaste.
Here’s a “sweet tooth” pin from Prestige Medical that’s part of our complete collection of dental accessories.
Chilly weather gives you an opportunity to refresh your look with layers! A few new layers that you can mix and match and you’ll feel like you have a whole new wardrobe.

Most of us are aware of Breast Cancer. During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the National Breast Cancer Foundation reminds women they should have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages, and that everyone should encourage women they know to create such a plan.
You can learn how to create an early detection plan, get more information about the disease and treatment, or learn about hosting a fundraiser to provide mammograms to women in need at the Foundation’s website.
You can help promote awareness by wearing your pink ribbon scrubs and accessories during the month of October. There are many flattering and eye-catching items included in allheart’s huge selection. Wearing them shows your support for the cause and gives you a way to open a discussion about Breast Cancer Awareness with your patients and co-workers.

Bring your wild side to work! Wearing an on-trend animal print scrub top is a subtle way to let everyone know you’re a little bit fierce, and allheart offers a large selection of functional and comfortable styles.
Large animal prints have become a fashion staple, so for a classy and classic look, opt for large animal prints in traditional colors, like this print scrub top from Baby Phat.
For a contemporary look, choose animal prints in bright colors, like a Cherokee Tooniforms top that blends Hello Kitty with a cheetah print, or a cheetah print mock-wrap top from Koi Happiness scrubs in a beautiful blue.
Summer is in full blast, which means you’ll probably be spending lots of time outdoors in the sun. Even though the beach may be calling your name, don’t forget to keep your skin safe while having fun. With just a few precautions, you can lower your chances of skin cancer and also prevent damage from powerful ultraviolet (UV) rays. Here are 5 easy tips to protect your skin:
- Use sunscreen! Look for at least SPF 30 and a “broad-spectrum” label. This will protect your skin against ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B rays.
- Reapply sunscreen throughout the day, especially after swimming. Even if the sunscreen is water-resistant, it is recommended to apply another layer after any sweat-inducing activities.
- Wear protective clothing, such as a light, long-sleeved shirt (like this one from Cherokee Workwear) or a hat and sunglasses to keep your eyes safe in the sun. Trust Your Journey sells several cute hats and visors that are perfect for outdoor outings.
- Try to avoid the sun between 10am-4am. The sun’s rays are the strongest during these hours, so search for the nearest patch of shade if you can.
- Look out for reflective surfaces. Sand, water, and snow can reflect harmful UV rays onto your skin, giving you a dreaded sunburn. Even if the sun isn’t out, you can still be affected by the UV rays.
Also, July is UV Safety Month, so it’s an opportune time to show some love to your skin. Encourage friends and family to adopt positive habits to prevent skin cancer and UV damage.
